I installed a new raymarine
pilot with the included fluxgate compass
, and the pilot is tied through nema to my garmin
plotter. Everything works and the pilot does hold a true course but the boat icon displayed on the plotter does not move in the direction it is pointed.
If I set a way point at a marker 1 mile away, the boat will go directly at the mark but the icon and the line that projects from the icon showing heading shows that I will miss the mark by a substatinal amount.
When the pilot is powered down it works normaly.
The pilot display shows the same compass
heading that I am seeing on my gps
and is close to ( 5-10 degrees) to what I see on the real compass.
I have tried moving the flux gate and there was no change. There is a adjust heading setting for the poilt but i have moved it 20 Degrees in either direction and have not noticed any change. Any ideas?
