In installing an X5 the instructions say to mount controller "min 0.8m (2'6")" from compass.

Presuming most would mount controller on steering binnacle and have compass there also, what gives ?

With my S-1 controller, C80, and wind instruments on the binnacle, the binnacle compass is useless. I've been meaning to see of there is a way to recalibrate it. I really wish these companies wouuld think more about magnetic shielding.

I must confess that I use our GPS compass more than the main magnetic though I fully intend to have the main compass re swung once this install is complete.

I have installed the X-5 a year ago and I am really disappointed about the performance on waves. Through the gyro sensor the unit reacts heavily on rolling of the yacht, resulting in a pumping motion of the rudder. See video (comparison with old Navico / Simrad) . For video see YouTube - Raymarine X-5 vs Navico TP30 Comparison watch?v=czikxpzYjVI (sorry, not allowed to post a url)
