Navico PH-8000 Autopilot

Well as they say a lot of water has gone under the keel since my first post. I have replaced all the components on the PC-8000 cockpit controller and no real improvement. Simrad distributor in Australia (where I am) doesn''t want to know me. I am taking one more shot at it then it will get scrapped and replaced with Navman or Raymarine. Better support and easier to get information about. With the level of support on Navico post merge with Simrad I am glad I don''t have any B&G instruments on board ;-)

This is the reply I got from simrad:
"Please check out our web-site @
and click on autopilots and the AP12 or AP14H will be the replacement. We
also have a dealer list on our web-site so you can pick a dealer that you
feel comfortable with."
Read the specs on these two units, I am not sure it would work.... these are for smaller boats than the 8000 was designed for.

I tried to get a Navico working again, and Simrad was willing to discuss it on the phone, but they were not able to help. They really don''t support the Navico line with parts or knowledge. I''d buy my next one from someone else. Good luck.

As this unit is nolonger made I would suggest getting a current model for a new installation. Navman, Raymarine and Simrad come to mind.

What is your experience with the PH8000? I was thinking of getting one for my 36 foot sailboat. Not so sure now.
