H​ello, sorry for the delay. The instruction you need is fairly complex and beyond what we are set up for here. However, there is a company that makes great instructional videos on these products that are about 2 hours long and reasonably priced. Here is a link : http://www.tmwmedia.com/productlisting/details/raymarine-ac-series-chartplotter-instructional-training-for-the-rc400rc435-rc435ic70c80c120-units
