Recommendation ST6001 Autopilot repair Portland Oregon

I need help with my autopilot. I have tried what I know to do and can't seem to fix it. Does anyone have any recommendations of someone who may be able to help me?

It is not registering something correctly. It always reads the same heading and doesn't seem to adjust to it. I have tried replacing the compass but it didn't change anything.

Had my ST6001 back to a dealer for three expensive repairs within 6 months.
It failed again ..... it is now in the dumpster and we have a new autopilot.

I had a similar problem. It proved to be a chafe in the data cable to the fluxgate.

If you have already tried replacing the fluxgate compass to no effect, the problem lies in the course computer. I've seen it before and successfully been able to send them back to Raymarine for repair.
