Zeus3 chart compass missing

My chart compass symbol has disappeared on my Zeus 3 screen but I can still see it on my Vulcan. Anybody having the same problem or can give a hint to how to get it back.

Do you mean the sail steer overlay? See below:

Understood.

Unfortunately, I have never used the chart compass overlay.

Ok I understand but if you have Zeus 3 maybe you could help me and check if it works for you.

Re: Zeus3 chart compass missing

It does not appear in all display modes.

For example, if you have "Look Ahead" turned on, the compass goes away. I would not be at all surprised if other options affected it.

If you continue to be stumped, I have found B&G tech service to be helpful.

Re: Zeus3 chart compass missing

Autopilot system has mandatory chart plotter and optional controller ( control head - which includes programming facility too ) . Any one unit can help to update this system , collectively . Device list selection from your configuration is normally auto select . Manually , we can select or see the equipment's status too . When more than one heading sensor / GPS units are integrated with network ( NMEA ) system - we choose priority among them or to dedicate one equipment for this requirement .

Perhaps , your device was not in device list for auto pilot or selection needs to be checked again . May be , I have not understood your question as well . Without relevant heading indication , symbol appears or without straight line - you have boat's heading ? For my understanding , please .

===============

Page 23 of User manual gives a picture . Do you mean in this detail ?

Page 71 gives the chart compass details with a note that this function will not be available when cursor is active in display . Is this function with " Hide " option ?

Please refer from this manual so as to work out well . Regards .

It is the chart compass function described on page 71 in Zeus 3 operator manual I mean.
It has worked for four years but suddenly I cant get it to show up on the screen.
It would be nice if someone operating a Zeus 3 could check if this function works for you.

This is valid for sailsteer overlay not chart compass.

Through chart plotter , select " settings icon " , then " autopilot " & then " chart compass" . Now , we need to opt " show " function instead of " Hide " . This should help to show the details on the top of the screen ! .

If you have selected sync 2D-3D in the chart options you will loose both sailsteer and the autopilot compass on the chart display. I just verified this on my system.
