ST60 wind instrument died

Hi. I have a boat with an ST60 instrument, was working fine, survived storm up to 60 knots (moored!) the other weekend. Last weekend going through a force 7 and over moderate seas it suddenly died - points to bow, dashes for speed. It's still up there on the mast! I'm hoping it was just a connector came loose, going to investigate, but can you tell me wiring layout and what signals to expect so I can test. Also, I have a speed transducer which gives a water temperature reading but no speed (I took transducer out, unfouled it and span it by hand, still reads 0.0, paddle doesn't appear damaged, any info on connections and signals to measure.

    I am having the same problem with my ST-60 wind instrument. I have checked all of the connections from the mast base to the instrument and they seem ok. The unit is getting power and the mast head unit looks ok from the deck.

You might want to double check that all of the spade connectors that are used to plug the wind transducer into the ST60 wind display are firmly plugged onto the display's terminals.

Because of the blind connection, sometimes the terminal ends up lodged between the red insulator and the spade, rather than within the spade connector itself. This results in intermittent or missing readings from one part of the sensor or more.

Also make sure the display is in Master mode. You will need to get into its setup mode to confirm this. The other possible mode is repeater, which would be used if this were a secondary readout.

Can u tell me how to download free up dated maps for my garmin nuvi 660 thanks vicki


Hi Vicki, unless your nuvi was first activated and acquired satellite lock in the last 60 days (unlikely as yours was discontinued a long while ago) then you cannot get free map updates, sorry.

For models activated within the last 60 days Garmin offer a free update to the latest maps if the maps already on the product when it was purchased are an older version. After that, all updats must be paid for.

You simply won't find free map updates legally. Accurate maps cost a fortune to produce and update so nobody gives them away, even the few illegal downloads tend not to work and if they do work are likely to be out of date anyway.

The way that Garmin price their map updates, it's often better to simply buy a new Garmin with the maps pre-installed, although I appreciate that's not the answer you hoped for. If you do buy Garmin updates then you can either go for a one-off update, or for additional cost can buy a lifetime update, but it's limited to the lifetime of the device which is only designed to last three years anyway so may be poor value if you buy the lifetime update and your machine then dies of wear or old age.

Wind instruments only display 3 dashs .we refitted the mast fitting and it worked for awhile then stopped.


Hi Paul!

Seeing as how you only performed ONE refit, it SHOULD be easy to trace the problem. I'm thinking the ground is faulty as the unit seems to have power to it judging from the three dashes visible that you mention.

Hopefully it WON'T be the connection at the top of the mast, but you know Murphy's Law.

Hope this is of help to you.

Good Luck!

Sonar not working properly, intermittent


Generally, that indicates air bubbles in the water under the transducer. If you have a transom-mount transducer, make sure the bottom surface is level or angled slightly down. If you have a thru-hull, make sure your bottom is fairly clean in that area.

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)

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

Raymarine Compatability


Yes. The shorty transducers that normally ship with the ST40 series instruments should be interchangeable with longer stem ST60 series ducers.
