NAVICO Tillerpilot tp5000

I need some help and info on my Tillerpilot TP500 Navico that is not working properly, When I set the course by pressing the auto button, it start changing step by step the course making a 360 degree turn, if I press the man button it maintain the course but it doesn’t make any correction, it just keep the tiller in the 0 position, Any suggestions on the problem?
Thanks in advance

I have navico 2000 tiller pilot. It sound like you may have it set for the wrong side of the cockpit. If that it is the case it keeps trying to correct in the wrong direction. On the 2000 it takes a combination of keys to change the direction. I could email a you a page or two from the manual if you thought it might help.

Cliftom—

You really shouldn't be reviving a dead thread from FIVE YEARS AGO.

FUnsail/Gary—

You do realize if he hasn't fixed the problem in the intervening five years, it is likely that he got rid of the autopilot.

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.

SD,

But look how well it turned out. Sometimes some good does come from reviving a thread......i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

I need a Tiller Pilot TP 5000/5500 manual.

Krister,

I hope you don't mind, but I just bought a used TP 5000/5500 from a friend of mine and the manual was ruined. I haven't found another on the internet yet. Would you please consider sending me a copy via email?

Krister,

Could you send me a copy of your manual via email? I bought one of these recently and the manual was ruined and the pages are basically welded together.

Thanks,
