Simrad TP22 question... Any owners out there?

I recently bought a TP22.

When I took the unit out of the box, there is an internal rattle like something is loose or broken. Is something gimbaled inside the unit? Is it normal to rattle? Plus, the box had no documentation or instructions???

I don't want to power it up as i'm thinking I got some sort of defective unit or something.

Any first hand knowledge would be appreciated.

Re: Simrad TP22 question... Any owners out there?

I know this is an older post from you but Im curious how you made out with the TP22 unit. In the past 2.5 years i have purchased 2 new units and they have both failed me after 18 months and 11 months respectively. Keep in mind I only use the boat May-October. Simrad is hard to reach and their strategy is to deflect all requests to local deals. The local dealers do not like the TP line of tiller pilots and encourage sending the unit back to Simrad. And the dealers are so busy they cant even get to looking at my malfunctioning TP22 for another week or two at earliest. And so the game continues. I had a Navico tiller pilot for 9 years and it never failed me. Simrad weak on service. As Im upgrading to larger boat and a full electronics package its going to be hard to consider Simrad simply because the service is non existent.
