Datamarine Link 5000

I have a Datamarine Link 5000 on my 1988 Catalina 36. The depth and the wind direction displays work fine. However, the wind speed and boat speed indicators just read 0 all the time. I know they are turning, but I assume they're not sending a signal. Anyone know how to test whether the signal is being received or not?THANKS

DMI Marine

Hello,

When I bought my boat a few years ago, the wind speed did not work (wind direction did). I sent the unit to DMI and it was repaired quickly and cheaply.

you can learn more on their site:
DMI Marine, Inc.

For the boat speed, have you spun the impeller and see if you get a reading?

Good luck,
Barry
