Hi. I think the Ray-techs told you to dis the red wire on the seatalk bus, not the power wire. Ok the course computer is not mentioned in your message. Also the gps
connection is not mentioned. IF you have a ST GPS, connected to the Course Computer and the Control head
, you should be able to maintain a course without any plotter attached. The heading info is read by the fluxgate
compass, or do you have a gyro? Please can you advise what gear
you have and how connected something like...
Course computer with rudder
feedback and fluxgate
Seatalk bus connected to ST6002+GPS+Plotter+CourseComp
The fact that it takes a few minutes usually indicates loss of position fixing information. Please try to tell more...
