New TP32 Simrad tiller pitot, very very noisy

Hello everybody. I'm not shure if something has been written already about this but I can't find it anyway.
Afther a lot of reading and searching we bought oureself the TP32 from Simrad. I had an old ST1000 before (solo crossed the Atlantic with it and more) but it doesn't do the job in little heavy weather. I was convinced of a good choise buying the TP32 but I'm very dissapointed right now so I even think something is wrong.

First thing: on the cover of the pilot there is written TP22 and not TP32. On the back there is written TP32. I opened the pilot to check and I think its the TP32 but I'm not shure..

Secondly: The pilot is very noisy! On the simrad site they even tell it's "extremely quiet" but I'm surprised how noisy he is (compared to the old ST1000). I will not be sailing day afther day with that thing making so much noise!

Any body can tell me what they now about the TP32? Should it realy be quiet or is that boulshit. Can it be something is wrong with my brand new pilot?

What do you mean by "independent WP"? Do you remember if your TP32 was noisy? I still think it should be a good autopilot (I hope)!

Re: New TP32 Simrad tiller pitot, very very noisy

I believe they are now made in Mexico. Perhaps the quality is not as good certainly the labeling isn't!

Overall I have had them before and I think they are more robust than the Raymarine. Was a UK made unit and I recently bout a new old stock Grey Navico TP30 for my new boat. I painted the simrad white to keep it cooler.

I don't recall it being any noiser than a typical tiller pilot.

I will defenetly make a noise isolationing cover arround it if this is the noise that it produces! It is more noisy then my old Raymarine tiller pilot. Simrad told on there side it should be "extremly quiet"... damn salesmen talk a quess!! I would love to compare to an other TP32 to be shure my TP32 has no technical malfunctioning but can't find much on the net.

The reason wy I bought the Simrad is because I tought the quality should be a little better then the Raymarine.. Difficult to find out!
