I am not sure if the right place to ask a ST 7000 question, but here it is. I have a unit that is giving me problems. Currently if you push auto pilot it engages the hydraulic pump but the compass
reading is stuck at one number 56 degrees ( this number will vary by a few degrees) which is not he magnetic compass
direction. If I turn the power of and on many times it once in a while will come up with the proper magnetic heading ( if I put a metal object by the flux gate compass it will alter the magnetic reading) but when it is turned off it reverts back to a 56 degrees. There are no metal objects near the fluxgate
compass. So if any one can advise me I am trying to figure out if the problem is the flux gate compass or the course computer.
