Garmin Chartplotter boat icon issue

I have a raymarine autopilot and a garmin 840xs Chartplotter. Everything worked until the garmin got stolen.

The replacement unit is installed and I want heads up orientation but the boat icon crabs across the screen.

The autopilot has a display. It's heading agrees with my compass. My compass agrees with the garmin GPS heading. There is also a display in he garmin called "heading" it doesn't agree.

One last piece of info. I think heads up orientation and the course up orientation look the same. That is they both crab but there's no difference.
