Re: Fluxgate compass and the st4000 Wheel "HELP"

Your fluxgate looks like it's mounted fine. Pointing the right way, etc.

Now you got me stumped, you say you should be reading around zero degrees magnetic, and you are reading in the low 100's of degrees both binnacle and fluxgate. If one was wrong, I'd have some advice.

Are you docked next to a huge magnet?
