Just bought a new Garmin
GHP20 reactor autopilot
with the JEFA drive unit(mechanical steering). Installed 3 month ago and nothing but problems since then. There is a periodic failure that Garmin/JEFA wants to fix, but other than that, it steers really poor. The wheel(and boat) goes from side to side all the time, it is not nearly as good as me nor our old Raymarine
I have talked to others that have somewhat the same experience, but there models are GHP10 or 12. Can this really be? Shouldnt it be as good as Raymarine
? And far better than the 15 years pld Raymarine i had before? Ex, there is NO way i can tack with it😟.
What are your experience with the Garmin autopilot
My boat is a 42 foot danish sailboat.
