Navico Wheel Pilot 5000 - Help

I just inherited this from a friend. He didnt have manuals or instructions. Does anyone here happen to have? I would really appreciate it. He used it as a back up so it wasnt installed and I need to see how it all works.

Thanks!

Re: Navico Wheel Pilot 5000 - Help

scratch that - I just found the manual from another forum. What I need to know now is if there a separate control unit from the computer or a remote? The instructions dont really show all the parts and I want to be sure I have everything. I have the Wheel, motor, belt, power, etc. and a computer. But there is no way to enter course headings - at least not the I can see. Thoughts?

Our old boat had a WP5000 when we first bought her. If you have the basic model then the controller is a simple three button job - set, steer starboard, steer port. All you can do is get the boat onto the required course and hit set. There is no specific course computer as such.

I believe that originally there was a vane option for course by wind and a more sophisticated controller the H-5000.
