Re: Fluxgate compass and the st4000 Wheel "HELP"

Well, First off i'm not sure it was ever working well or properly. When I got the boat all the insturments were in a box. They looked new. Bur the transducers were allready installed. The Fluxguate in mounter just above the back rest of the first settee bench seat on the starboard side. Thats like 4.5 feet from the engine nothing close there to create a field? The other thing I have never realy looked at the accuricy of the helm compass? I will start there this afterneoon. then I will swing the fluxguate an Saturday. If all else fails I will add a correcting 'offset' to your fluxgate as per the instructions.
check my hook up and clean. Anything more?
