Backing up configuration settings on c95/c97/c125/c127/e7/e7D/e95/e97/e125/e127 MFDs

Raymarine recommends that customers regularly back-up their MFD's configuration settings prior to performing a software update, as the software update procedure for Raymarine's MFDs require that a Factory Reset operation be performed following installation of the software.  A Factory Reset operation will revert the MFD's configuration settings to the factory default values.  Backing up your MFD's configuration settings prior to performing the software update will permit this data to be restored in your MFD following the Factory Reset operation.  Your MFD's configuration settings may be backed up to a commonly available microSD memory card.  System configuration data and waypoint, route, track data may be stored on a microSD memory card which also contains software update files.
