Simrad/navico tillerpilor repair

At the start of a 4 month cruise my nearly new (purchased several years ago) simrad tp32 did quite a good job.

But about 1/2 way thru it seemed to wander more and more. It still mostly works, but not nearly as good as originally.

It is out of warranty and I'm just wondering if anyone has experience with sending these back for repair. Raymarine has or had a flat rate repair system, but I don't know that simrad does the same?

Re: Simrad/navico tillerpilor repair

You might want to try the factory reset. They told me in an email...

No power to the TP32 press and hold Port. Tack, Starboard and Nav.
Power up the TP32 while holding the buttons in. The LED's on the unit will blink Indication the reset.

Thank you for choosing Navico products!

Navico Technical Support

This spring I had two TP-32s that were misbehaving. Navico sent me these instructions for restoring the factory default settings. That and a compass calibration using the instructions in the owners manual fixed them both. Be careful that you do not change the tillerpilot from stbd mount to port mount. The instructions for fixing that problem are also in the owners manual.
