Question about Raymarine ST6001 S1G Hydraulic GPS Receiver

1 Answer

The S1G display occasionally shows no data. The autopilot works fine for hours then fluxgate seems to hang up.

My problem is as follows: My S1G unit is on my trolling boat now for 20 months always working fine in all wind conditions. Since 2 weeks the unit seems to have a problem. It suddely shows no data on the 6001 display and the fluxgate compass looks as if it is hanging. It stays put at a certain position. After a while the display shows that the fluxgate is working again and I can then use the autopilot again. You can then drive for hours in zig zag lines whilst fishing for salmon and seatrout, then it suddenly hangs up again. This problem is absolute new for me and very annoying. The unit always worked fine. What problem do I have?? When I drive a circle using the autopilot it nearly makes a full circle, but just before I close the circle the unit shows no data. Its crazy.... I have checked if ferous material is the reason for the disturbance, but I found nothing that was not there before as it worked fine. A reserve fluxgate compass shows the same problem!!! I have also checked if all cables to the S1G unit are fine and properly installed. Hope someone has an idea whats wrong. Thanks, Cay

Connect Furuno 1732 to st8002 autopilot

It will handle the voltage. as far as the wiring goes, you'll have to decide which port to use. the wire coloring is different. you'll have to send your nmea out data from port 3 white and shield ( Like you said) to the pilot and receive your heading data from the pilot on port 2.

No serial output suddenly from my Gold

If i remember right you can test the GPS units serial port at power up.
1. Press and Hold "OUT" button then press "PWR"
2. Follow units onscreen directions.
you may need to have serial cable connected to COM port to verify transmission
good luck

Wiring of seatalk instruments

OK, you are confused. Seatalk is a bus system, using 3 wires , (power +, power-, and Data.) red, bare and yellow repectively. So Red and Bare are 12V and ground. Since the 125 shows a green light, it is getting power and outputting data. but is it seatalk?? to make a 125 Seatalk, you must hook red and green together to 12 V, so check that first. if green is grounded or not connected, that is the problem (or one of them)
Next divide system to its' simplest terms, so hook the GPS straight to the display ST60, and see if it works red to rd, yell to yell and bare to bare (sometimes black) One by one hook the others into the chain until they all work or failed device takes down Seatalk network. If you are missing 12V on a seatalk leg, check 5A fuse in course computer. If you have a pilot, you have a course computer, unless it is ST4000 wheel pilot, and then the brain is the display (course computer is built in to ST4000 display)

Yep, if rudder calibration values are OK, then there is a real problem with calibration, it can be a mechanical problem or a faulty rudder feedback unit. Follow procedure at page 93 of user manual :
AP35 Autopilot Instruction Manualto troubleshoot the error, if you cannot get rid of the error message you may have to replace the rudder feedback unit or to have the unit inspected by a technician.

Furuno Radar Model 1833C

You have two things that orient the radar, on is called heading (or bearing) alignment. This is where you aim your radar so that a target comes up at 12 o'clock when dead ahead. Access this mode by pressing and holding menu duing power on, and go in to Installation Mode, radar setup, next page, align heading. I have posted a "tip" on this, search for VX2 radar alignment.
After this is done, North up is accomplished by having a magnetic input (fluxgate compass or autopilot). Calibration of this compass varies, but if it is accurate, then all should line up nicely.

Garmin 60CSx - Cant find satellites

Try a re-load of the chipset driver. It is available from the Garmin website. I find that it occasionally becomes corrupt.
You can check by entering the "Main Menu" then "Setup" then "System" then press Menu and choose "Software Version".
If the "GPS SW Version" is 0.00 then a reload of the chipset driver will correct the problem.
