Re: ST4000 autohelm to Garmin echo50s

According to the ST4000 manual (Google is your friend),

"Push +10 and -10 degree keys together to select Track Control' from Auto.
Push again to return to automatic steering"

so there's no Track button, but it does have the capability.

On my previous boat I used a Raymarine ST4000 (?) Wheelpilot with a Garmin GPS180, and StandardHorizon NMEA wind instrument, no problems and it supported both Track and Wind modes.

OK, sorry, the Track button must be ST4000+ only. I hadn't realised that I had an ST4000+ till I checked just now.

You have to press the "Track" button on the ST4000 to put it in Track Mode.

Yea I have to take a second look at the wiring. Blue to Blue in not correct.

Re: ST4000 autohelm to Garmin echo50s

I did not know that, I will have to dig out my manual and have a look. That would be awesome to have it hooked up to my plotter.

NMEA 0183 compatible
It depends what version you have If you have vr.3 it is not compatible but if you have Vr. 3.5 than it is.

Re: ST4000 autohelm to Garmin echo50s

I have an older Autohelm ST4000 but I am pretty sure it is not NMEA 0183 compatible. Maybe, but I'm pretty sure it is not.
If you do get this working that would be very cool. Keep us posted.
