My X5 wheel
pilot gives me an intermittant 'No Pilot' error when I turn it on. Still trying to resolve the issue with Raymarine. When I first installed the pilot it wouldn't boot up and gave the 'No Pilot' error message. I switched the compass
out and it worked fine. The day before i left on my TransPac the 'No Pilot' happened again after weeks of working fine. Since I mostly use a windvane
was resigned to not having the autopilot. In the morning when I left the slip, the Pilot booted up fine and worked for the entire passage
, more than 50 hours of motoring and switched to Standby the rest of the 15 day passage
. Been here a few weeks and went out yesterday and once again got the 'No Pilot' error message.
Talking with Raymarine customer service
, they got back to me to tell me the pilot was having communications
issues between the control head
and pilot black, actually gray, box. Well, DUH!!!! I'd already figured that out. They said the compass
wasn't the problem and shouldn't have had any effect on the 'No Pilot' error message issue. They weren't really forthcoming on how to resolve the issue if the problem came back.
Have an email
into them again. Hopefully will have a more definitive reply from them this time.
