Question about Navico Boating

2 Answers

My Navico fluxgate compass was flooded a year ago and I've tried in vain to find a replacement for my Corus heading /autopilot. Is there a substitute that uses this old NMEA ?

Hi Phil

I suspect that you'd be correct in assuming the NMEA2000 setup wouldn't be recognized by your autopilot.

I've included a link to Simrad support. If anyone can get you some joy, I'd wager it'd be them.

Good Luck

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 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 a Raymarine ST8001 autopilot system that we are unable to get throught the calibration mode to set deviation. Our boat dealer mounted the fluxgate compass within 18" of the emgine which was too...


compass needles are affected by iron objects and can also be affected by field magnetism generated by current flowing through a wire .Bilge pumps , winch motors are heavy current drawers and they could affect the compass operation
while the voltage is low the field of the magnetism around the wire can influence the compass heading so check for any electronic apparatus wiring close to the unit ( radio , radar etc
it may be necessary to run the powers wires in an insulated sheath ( like coaxial cable or other insulated power cables) around sensitive equipment
talk with marine equipment installers to get better ideas as to prevent interference with the compass

Does anyone know where I can get a unit repaired?


Were you able to get your TP20 repaired? I service these units in addition to the Navico Corus instruments and pilots. I also buy and sell units to help owners keeps their systems functional.

Boat on screen does not point the direction the boat is going e-80 series also chart will not go course up or heading up like the radar does unit is set in relative motion mode


The direction of the boat symbol is depending on the compass course from the autopilot. You will see that your GPS course (COG) and magnetig heading on the autopilot differs. Solution is to calibrate autopilot compass. Will advice you to not use course up, stick to north up or heading up.

Raymarine C 80 Head up problem


I calibrated my autopilot compass and that resolved the problem. My auto pilot compass was about 100 deg out.

Once i did this the problem was resolved.

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.

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


Try to borrow a computer unit to detect if the fault is in the computer unit or the display unit
