    A98 touch screen

    Put my old A98 on a friends boat and touch screen was not working or making selections on its own. Unit worked fine years ago and was stored in the original box in the garage. I even tried it in the house with a very good 10a 12v power supply and same deal.

    Any thoughts or should I just pitch it. I have a used transducer with TM mount and a new never used transducer.

    I hate to say it but the touch screen probably went bad. Many of the A98's had issues with the units failing prematurely. I had two A98's and both failed right at three years. these units were babied in a fresh water only environment, stored indoors after every use. Raymarine won't help you, I have tried. Ended up junking my whole Raymarine system and switched to Garmin. They will fix it but the cost is ridiculous and if you do it, Raymarine will install the same parts that are also prone to failure.
