I bought this auto pilot unit about 10yrs. ago. It has never worked correctly. The problem with it sounds simple, When you get it all set up and push the hold course button it holds for 20 seconds then bears off 10* then another in tel
you just go in a circle. Calibrate and adjust sea state have been tried. And now when I try to calibrate it just locks up and I have to cut power for a while before it will do anything. I like to hand steer and so does the crew. This is why it never got sent back.
is now Simrad
, I called them up the other day and talked to a nice fellow.The answer was, I understand your problem and you need a new mother board and maybe a new flux gate compass
. And we don't make those parts
anymore. Well we still make them they just won't fit your unit. So you need to look for a independent shop that might have these parts
Any one know a shop the can do this? Thanks!!
