So it steers the boat to go back at 350deg, but now my real heading on the mag compass is now 335deg...

To resume, it shift back and forth by 15deg by period of 10 to 15 minutes.

For the record: I am traveling north on the ICW and I am currently anchored near the bridge in CocoaBeach for the night.

Just to let you know that I finaly discovered that the fridg motor make interference with the autopilot compass. So I will have to move it. Thanks for the leads.
