NavNet VX2 Serial Number

NavNet VX2 Serial Number

Postby Skipjack2005 » Thu Aug 31, 2017 4:03 pm

I have an RDP-149 display on my NavNet VX2 that has failed. I spoke with Justin at Furuno in Camas and he advised I find a used replacement unit. The one I received off EBay had the "4" in RDP-149 scratched out and was unreadable. The map card door appears to be a replacement and it says C Map NT Plus VX2. The serial number is 4309-7594. I could not find that serial number on Furuno's instructions for updating VX2 software. Is this serial number a proper number for an RDP-149 display?

Skipjack2005,

After running the serial number 4309-7594 that you have provided through our data base, I found that the unit you have is a 1833C/NT, which is a VX1 RDP139/NT unit not a VX2 RDP149/NT unit.

Please note that the VX1 units utilized FP Cards (CMAP) for charting, while the VX2 utilized SD Cards for charting.

Hope this information helps you.
