Does the compass show other courses on your display when you are on other headings? If no, then your fluxgate compass is at the source of your problems. You might try to switch your ST6000 to use wind direction instead of compass course (I can't remember the key combination now, but it was just a couple of keystrokes) and see if it steers correctly via wind angle. If no, then problably your compass isn't faulty but your main unit it.
