Your unit had a 2 yr warranty from when it was first purchased. Navico, who is the parent company of Simrad, will only work on a unit that is less than 5 yrs old. The service from them is over $100 per hr and they do have a flat rate for VHF radios. To get the cost and to see if they will even work on it, you would need to contact Navico at 1(###) ###-#### You can also email them using the attached page.
