Just purchased a 386 this week and am trying to get everything up and running. Boat has a Raymarine c 80 on it. Got everything working but backlight is dim. Has 2 settings day or night. Night setting is fine but day setting isn’t bright enough. How can I make it brighter

Congratulations on your 386!!. I enjoyed m 386 from 2011 to 2018. Sold it last month. C80 manual attached. If the manual is correct you can change illumination from the power button.

I did everything in the manual before I posted the first time. Monitor just does not get brighter. Guess I’ll be looking for a new unit.

Maybe an nav electronics guy could look at it. Had a similar issue on my 2004 Hunter 386 Raymarine chartplotter after I purchased it in 2011 and the nav electronics guy resolved.. Used Raymarine C80 sell for ~$500 on ebay OR new Raymarine Axiom sell for ~$650+.

If you don’t have radar a newer chartplotter will work with most Raymarine electronics,I am on my 3rd C-80
and 2 used C-80 $$$ so far.
I keep saying I want to have some thing that will still work with my Radar but hoping this is last used C-80.
