Re: Engine start shuts off chartplotter
I had the same problem. The wiring TO THE PLOTTER was part of the problem due to small wire size. Add in the voltage drop when starting the engine and the voltage to the instruments went low enough to kick it off. Once I upsized the instrument wiring all is fine.
You should add a yearly battery connection PM to your list of routine checks that you do. Lots of good suggestions on this discussion!
