Seaclear and NMEA Out to Tiller Pilot

This past weekend I tried using this feature in Seaclear to tell my Simrad TP32 to steer a route. It does not work very well.... has anyone else tried this and did you get it to work satisfactorily?
What happens is the boat will make about a 90 degree turn towards the route line even if the boat is only a little off. It overcorrects badly.

On a similar note, the COG display in seaclear only seems to work if the boat is making at least 3 or 4 knots.....It just goes to 0 under these speeds. My Furuno GPS which is supplying the nav data to Seaclear did not do this... I looked at the Furuno when Seaclear was displaying a 0 COG and the Furuno was showing the correct heading

Thanks for any input
