ST6002, Course Computer, and Raystar 125 GPS
Before I contact Raymarine I was hoping someone has a similar system configuration.
I'm still working out the kinks on the ST6002, with the fluxgate compass, and course computer settings.
I've gone through the setup and sea trial mode a few times and when in auto mode I'm getting off course errors after two or three minutes as I watch the autopilot steer off course. According to Raymarine this is due to sail balancing. I'm getting this even under engine power in light seas...I reset the sensitivity to 2 vs the defaul 5 which seemed to help. I then decided to by the GPS and installed it this past weekend. But I'm confused as to how I'm suppose to know its working.
I get the green "Fix" light but when accessing the ST6002 I'm not able to obtain any information that the GPS is providing signal to the course computer. Of course I've re-checked the sea-talk wiring and don't see any issue there as the instructions are straigt forward. Yellow/Shield to seatalk, on the course computer, red&green to 12v and brown to ground.
Any advice would be helpful.
Thank you, Kaian1
