Hello bhowardjr,

Yes any electronics store would sell a cable conversion kit what you would end up doing is putting a matching socket and jack arrangement on each end and connecting them. You just have to find the matching cable ends.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Fuses blowing on raymarine e series 125 chartplotter

It sounds like the fault is within the plotter itself. There should be any component, which shorts with main power supply, causes the blow of fuse to overload. I do advice you not to try to repair it by yourself, and contact the authorized service center.

Raymarine smartpilot x-5. The fluxgate compass is some 45 - 60 degrees out from the boat compass. I have tried to recalibrate but this does not solve the problem. Any ideas?

First of all - is the boat compass correct? How does it align with COG? Secondly, do you have a magnetic field that interfere with the fluxgate? To test for this you can use the compass on your smartphone or a handheld compass, move about in the boat and keep the phone/compass aligned with the keel. If the heading drifts in the area where you have your fluxgate today, move it.

I have a Raymarine ST2000+ tiller pilot. In going to install it, the way my boat is laid out, the best way to install it would result in its being about 5 degrees diagonal to the transom, looking down on...


I can't see being 5 degrees off line much of a problem as far as the sweep is concerned.

I'm fairly sure that when you do your 1 1/2 to 2 SLOW circles that the tillerpilot will correct itself to read closer to your actual compass heading as well.

Hope this helps you out.
Happy Boating!

I installed a Raymarine compass sensor in a GRP sailing boat underneath the chart table at least 50 cm away from metal and magnets. It is connected to a SP X-5 computer unit and a ST6002 autopilot...

If I were troubleshooting this, I'd manually adjust the orientation of the compass sensor until it matched the true heading. Once that was done, I'd move it side to side to ensure it's changing in the correct directions. If not, the unit could be upside down. Let me know how this turns out.

We have the same setup on our vessel.

Here's the link from Raymarine for instructions to install your base unit:

(Click on Base Station & Controller installation)

And here is the link to your owners manual for your ST2000+:

(Click on 81130 6.pdf)

These contain all the wiring information you need to get it done!

Raymarine ST6002 Smartpilot Alarm Message ''Seatalk Fail 2''

Very possible that the Wind instrument has a defective Seatalk interface - it happened to me. You could try your Wind in another boat, just connecting it temporarily to the Seatalk Bus - if it jams those it is the problem

Your autopilot should have a separate Course Computer such as the 100, 400, S1... somewhere. Some models have two SeaTalk busses, and the recommended installation is to use one bus for the 6002 control head alone, and the other bus for instruments etc, so a SeaTalk fail on the instrument bus will not disable he Autopilot. I retired my boat this way (after the dealer took the one-bus shortcut).

The real solution is to have the Wind instrument fixed. The cheapest work-around is to cut the yellow SeaTalk wire between the 6002 and the Wind, so that the Wind instrument gets power but does not affect the data bus. That should let the AP and Wind each work normally and independently (no Wind-angle mode on the AP).

Raymarine have a forum you should join for more info and help.

This is a common problem if the GPS is hooked up to an electronic heading sensor such as an autopilot. If the heading sensor is not calibrated properly, the boat will appear to be facing the wrong direction.

If you have an autopilot, consult the installation guide and perform the sea trial procedures. That should get your boat lined up properly.

Sea talk failure

Remove all wiring from 4000 head, hook up only 12V, if seatalk fail continues, it is the head. if seatalk fail goes away, hook in instruments one by one until the bad head is found. Seatalk is 12V red, Ground Screen(bare wire) and Data yellow (pulsing voltage). good luck 847-746-0100 John Barry
