I tried sending this question to Simrad
support on its website but haven't gotten a feedback after quite some time. So I'd see if anyone has encountered similar problem.
I have Simrad
TP-22 tillerpilot and IS-20 wind
instrument networked together along with other Lowrance gadgets (HDS-10m chart plotter, link8 VHF
If I put the TP-22 in normal steering
mode, it works fine. If I press the "<" and ">" buttons and put it into steer-to-wind mode, it also seems to be working fine, too. However, under the steer-to-wind mode, it keeps generating a very annoying beeping "Chn6" (wind change) alarm
which I just can't clear!
I keep pressing the "enter" button on IS-20 but it keeps coming back beeping with the alarm
. If I do it enough times, then the beeping would go away, but then the LCD screen
on the IS-20 would keep showing "Chn6" instead of displaying the wind
speed as it normally would. If let run for a couple of minutes, then the alarm kicks off again... and I really don't think there's much significant wind change during all of this time. This behavior starts as soon as steer-to-wind mode is entered...
I tried resetting the IS-20 and starting over... I also tried to set the wind-change alarm on it to "off", but nothing works
Other than this annoying alarm triggered on the wind instrument, the rest of the system seems to be functionally correct - i.e., it's doing a reasonably good job steering
to the set wind angle.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
