Hi All

Help please...

My SIMRAD GoFree Wifi has seems to have stopped working. The power light is on - but it is not broadcasting a SSID Wifi Hot Spot - and seems to not be acting as a router for the chart plotter and RI10 Radar Interface.

The chart plotter is connected - and there is no traffic between them - the SIMNET LED lights are not flashing. 

I want to reset the GoFree - but can not do that - unless I can connect to it - and I can not connect to it without it broadcasting a SSID to connect to with my iPad.

Any thoughts anyone ?

Thanks

Tim

There is a factory reset button on the device itself.  I don't recall exactly where it is but it's a small hole that you push a paper clip or pin into and hold for a few seconds.  Call the folks at Simrad support and they can walk you through the procedure.  It didn't solve that exact problem for me,  but it's worth a try.  Simrad replaced mine free of charge.

Hi 

Many thanks - yep - spoke to SIMRAD yesterday - really helpful - and told me about the reset button.

Sadly - it does not work - and SIMRAD tell me the unit is faulty.

So I need to swap for a new one.

But at least I know what the problem is now.

Thanks again,

Tim
