Probably Ray has lost the bright engineers to the competition, as they are deaf to the logic, deaf to the good sense, deaf to the rasonable, and worst, deaf to their customers.

Love ours, also acts as a repeater for all the instruments that are linked into Seatalk.. I can get boat speed, depth, dtw, etc, from anywhere on the boat as well as operate the pilot.

Halekai, Im not sure what you are talking about. Mine is always powered up wheather in Auto or Standby. I know the backlight goes out after a certain time, but my control stays powered up until you turn it off. I'm confused. (I know, easily done)

Halekai-

Mine stays on as well...like TJKs. What firmware did you have in yours?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I agree with Halekai on the issue - it will turn itself off after 3 minutes or so in STBY mode. The documentation says that this is its expected behavior so presumably firmware is not important. This is pretty darn annoying but still - the remote is excellent otherwise and very useful - so, while I realize this silly limitation, I still use it all the time. Just spent all day today sailing using nothing but it's buttons.

Oops - lost track of this thread yesterday. The advertisement might say "waterproof" but mine fogged up from the inside when I left it in the rain so I don't think it would survive getting dunked in saltwater.

Zanshin-

If you're in the tropics, the unit may well have some "fogging" if hit by cold rain.

To avoid confusion here is the exact wording, copied and pasted, from the current on-line manual for the S100 the unit I was referring to.

Power Saving Mode
"If you are in STANDBY mode (autopilot off), the handset will automatically turn off if no button has been pressed for 5 minutes. This will help to extend the battery life."

Remote Manual (Scroll to Pg. 7)



Yours stays on because evidently the "Smart Controller" does NOT have this STUPID power saving mode/feature. I don't need a repeater as the only Raymarine stuff I have is the Auto Pilot so the S100 is all I need or want..

Halekai-

It is probably because TJK and I use our remotes as repeaters, and may be pressing buttons to go between different data displays.

Halekai - as a workaround to this issue (which annoys me no less than you) I just trained myself to click the standby button (or one of the directional buttons) on the remote from time to time while its in the standby mode. It seems to keep it awake. Becomes second nature (especially if you use it as much as I do). It would be nice to fix this of course.
