I have a small center console (32 ft) I use to tournament fish. My electronics are very important to me. I've found this unit difficult to use in rough conditions without the joystick. I assume the joystick is better, but mine has never actually worked so I cant say for sure. Maptech has replaced the joystick and had me re-install the driver all to no avail. I should be at a tournament right now, but I stupidly took one of my Simrads off and installed this unit without leaving myself time to switch back. If anyone has any idea on making the joystick work I would appreciate the help.
Please see my Ebay add for a once installed never used Maptech 312.
Did you install the new joystick that was sent to you?
If so, can you confirm that you have it plugged in to the GREEN USB prot on the bottom of the i3?
There are 3 PURPLE USB ports and 1 GREEN one.
The joystick will NOT operate properly if plugged into any of the PURPLE USB ports.
