, KVH autocomp 1000 has been giving me some gas pains, I tihnk it finally bit the big one.
It has been operating erratically - 'counting down' 159..358....0, and over and over..then it would lock on to the heading.
Now I get no output. I removed the input from the mux, and put it directly to the autopilot
. Same deal, nothing showing on the screen
Called KVH. Hands down, the worst Customer Service
I have experienced in 2 and half decades of boating
The rep asked how old it was, told him it was about 10 or so years old. He said. Just buy a new one. Can't send it in for repair. No discount on a replacement unit, no refurbs, nothing. So I now have a $400 4 pound paperweight!!
what good is a nice top quality piece of equipment
that can't be serviced?
Is there anyone, other than KVH that can service
it.. or another decent fluxgate
that won't make me miss a mortgage payment??
