IMPORTANT TERMS OF DOWNLOADING SOFTWARE

Firmware update processes are done at your own risk. Before initiating the update process be sure to backup and make copies of all important files.

If the firmware process is interrupted your product may not function properly, therefore do not interrupt the process and ensure the unit is on a reliable power supply. Damage caused by incomplete upgrades will not be covered by Raymarine warranty.

By Downloading the software, you agree to these terms.

Stage 1: Populating the mSD Flash Memory Card (or CF Card) with the MFD Software

Note: To avoid potentially corrupting the data on your Navionics chart card, DO NOT copy software update files to your Navionics chart card and DO NOT back up waypoint/route/track data to your Navionics chart card. MicroSD cards are commonly available in most stores selling consumer electronics products. Waypoint, route, track data, and system configuration data can be stored on a microSD memory card which also contains software update files.

  • You are NOT required to update the products software versions sequentially. For example, you can go from application v1.04 to v1.35, however you may require a bootcode upgrade first.
  • The mSD (Micro SD) memory cards used with a/c/e/eS/gS Series MFDs should have a memory capacity of no less than 1GB and no more than 32GB.
  • The mSD card should be formatted to FAT32. (External link: Instructions)
  1. Insert a compatible Flash memory card into the computer's memory card reader or into a memory card reader which has been interfaced to the computer.
  2. Select the appropriate software download for your product from HERE
  3. Upon completion of the download, click on the folder where the downloaded files have been saved to open it
  4. If the downloaded file is a .ZIP file, extract the contents of the .zip file - example:
Software Update Screenshot
  1. Copy all new downloaded files to the Root of the Flash card (Root is the first level you access when selecting the Flash). 
    1. If the Download is an ISO file, do not try to open the file, instead just copy the whole ISO file over to the mSD card. 
    2. There may be two ISO files for the Radios, a Bootcode and an Application. Do not copy these onto the same mSD card at the same time, otherwise the upgrade will not work. Copy on the Bootcode ISO first and upgrade the Radio, then copy the Application ISO onto the uSD card, once you have deleted the Bootcode ISO from the mSD card.  
Boot loader screenshot

  1. Make sure the files are not in any folders on the card
    (See video below for examples. Files will vary depending on update) 
    1. For example: if your computer has assigned Removable Disk (E:) to your memory card reader/writer, then the software update files should be copied directly to Removable Disk (E:), not to any folders created on the memory card.
    2. Note: You are only opening the ZIP file that is downloaded. You cannot open the files contained in the ZIP file, these have extensions such as .dob .pkg .sh .sh.sig .iso with various file names. If you attempt to open these files you will see an error as they are designed to update your Raymarine products and not for use in a Windows, Apple or Linux PC.
  2. Remove the memory card from the computer's memory card reader.

Stage 2: The update method

Updating a Ray50, Ray52, Ray53, Ray60, Ray63, Ray70, Ray73, Ray90, Ray91, 2nd Station Handset, Hub and Wireless Handset with an ISO file, via an a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD or AXIOM family MFD

  1. Please make sure SeaTalkNG is connected to both the VHF Radio and the MASTER Multifunction Display, and that all are powered before starting the update procedure. 
  2. Also ensure your MFD is running the latest LightHouse II software (v17.45 or higher) or latest LightHouse 3 software.
  3. If the Radio has a Bootcode file, this must be installed before the Application file, otherwise jump to Step 12 below.
  4. Place the mSD card with the v2.15 Bootcode ISO file into the MASTER MFD (while it is powered on)

    1. This means, the radio has installed the bootcode file, and it's ready for the Application code to be installed.
  8. If you have a Wired 2nd Station handset on the vessel, connected to your Ray6x, Ray7x or Ray9x VHf Radios, then perform the following to place it/them into Programming Mode (if not, jump to step 13). This is only necessary if the Wired Handset is on VH1.26 or lower - otherwise jump to step 13: 
    1. Power off the handset using the softkey power button at the top.
      • Note; It is important the Handset is powered off before proceeding to the next step (check for a blank LCD with no backlight)
    2. Then, whilst holding down the DSC distress key (at the back of the handset) and the PPT key together at the same time, power the handset back on again using the softkey at the top.
    3. The Handset will power up in "Programming Mode", where the LCD screen will be blank and the backlight will flicker.
  9. Next, insert the mSD card containing the Application ISO file into the MFD:
Software update screenshot
  1. You should see a pop-up menu on the MFD screen stating "Software Updates are available".
  2. Follow the on screen instructions until you are presented with a table of connected products
  3. Ensure that the product/s you wish to update are ticked (i.e. the Ray50, Ray52, Ray53, Ray60, Ray63, Ray70, Ray73, Ray90 or Ray91 needs to be ticked - 2nd Station handsets or Hubs are not listed)
  4. Click on the Install now button located in the bottom right of the screen
  5. MFD will show update % progress and eventually “Update Complete” for the product/s
  6. Once the upgrade has completed, Remove the mSD Card from the MFD.
  7. Now re-connect any Wireless Handset/s to the Hub (otherwise jump to Step 21)
    1. Once the Hub is on v1.20 (or higher), in order to connect a Wireless Handset running VH1.21, you need to rename the Hub's Name (SSID) to 10 characters or less. Once the Wireless Handset is then connected and upgraded to VH1.32 (or higher), then you can change the Hub's name back to original 15 characters (if desired) by performing a VHF system reset.
    2. Once you connect the Wireless handset to the Hub, it will state on the screen "new software available - do you want to install it now?". Click "Yes" and then insert the Wireless Handset into it's charging cradle. Then wait for the on screen instructions to state "Complete".
