Help in Calibrating an ST60+

In the excitement of successfully installing a new ST60+ on the boat I messed up on the calibration. The directions say make two circles and the system will beep 3 times and flash, then push disp and true/app and hold for 2 sec. and push the disp button to select the wind angle offset screen, sail into the wind ect.
Well I pushed the disp and true/app and held for 2 sec. first, then again, and the third time for more than 2 sec. Each time nothing happened. I expected when you pushed the button to hear a beep 3 times. Miss read the directions. Then I made circle after circle. Must have looked like a drunk. After many circles nothing beeped or flashed I tied back up to my mooring. Also once turned off the power, restarted the instrument, drove in circles and still nothing.
So my question is how to get back to calibrating the instrument? must be a way to redo? I hope.

Re: Help in Calabrating a ST60+

First question, how far is it out? I fitted ours and it was pretty good so left it alone. Our mounting arm isn't quite in line with the centre of the boat but in practise I can't tell any difference.

Give RayMarine a call. I have had problems with the calibration also but they were able to help me out.

Instructions are a bit tough in my opinion.
