Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Raymarine autopilot my yacht was hit by lightning and most electronics had to be replaced. The boards were replaced in the following Raymarine devices a) RL80C pathfinder plotter b) ST7001 smartpilot c) 400 course computer The problem is that when instructed to goto a waypoint the smartpilot indicates the correct degree to turn, for example 10 degrees to port but the yacht turns to starboard first, realises the error and then overshoots to port before finally settling on the correct course. This problem occurs both on a port or starboard track. If I set the degrees to turn to port or starboard manually then everything works OK. But when trying to goto a waypoint the above problem always occurs. I have done all dockside and compass setups but it does not help.

Hi Alchik. Lightning hits can affect all and everything, Murphies Law says that until you have replaced all control electronics, the fault will continue to pester you. Is there any part of the system that has not yet been replaced? Because that is probably going to be the course you have to set for yourself. I loath acts of God when it comes to electronics.

regards
Graeme

Hi I have a raymarine c120,dose the hiden electronic compass have a reset button,when following a track on screen im am traveling sideways or a stern,,,do I need a new one or reset,??


Do you have the display configured for "heading up"? If it's "north up" then the map orientation will be fixed and your heading will change. Look at the softkeys under "presentation". The C120 doesn't have a hidden electronic compass; it uses the heading from the GPS (which will wander around when you are stopped). If you have a Raymarine autopilot it will provide compass heading to the C120.

Autopilot shows "no rudref"


The rudder sensor works like a light dimmer, so you get 5V and ground on the outside two connections and a varying voltage between about 1 and 4 volts depending on rudder position

Raymarine st8002 wired to furuno


The st8002 is not compatble with rs232 data. You need to supply it with nmea 0183 data. You will need to wire it to the "NMEA port IN" on the pilot to NMEA out on your Furuno and turn on the mnea sentances "out" on your Furuno. You will need to turn on at least the following sentances GGA GLL RMB RMC.Hope that helps.

Raymarine gps sounder


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.
