That was the next thing on my list was to check compass deviation. It's advertised as non-magnetic. A couple weekends ago, I moved the heading sensor down to the recommended location, between the compass and the drive motor. When you initially set the autopilot, you note your compass heading and then turn the heading knob on the pilot to the corresponding number. Being unfamiliar with the operation, I wanted it up right next to the compass for good visibility.
