      Hi Chris, I purchased a rudder feedback from you for a Robertson AP 45 in 2015, I’m Getting a rudder feedback failAnd it’s going into S.I.M Mode. I spoke to simrad technical Support and they told me I need a frequency meter to check this. I opened up the unit and everything looks fine inside I have 12 V going to it, anyway to test this? I don’t have a frequency meter

      Chris., Do you have any ideas as to why the heading marker on my maxsea would not be working? It was working on my lobster boat, and I put the computer on my dragger, and it doesnt work. I have two computers with the program installed, and one of them I have never been able to get to work, but this one has always had it, and I am used to it being there

        Sorry for the late response, I don't get any notifications if someone posts here. Do you have heading data coming in over NMEA0? Would usually come from the autoplilot output. Although you COG vector should work ,right click the vessel icon and you should be able to toggle it on, or go up to the top middle menu and select MODE, , enable COG/SOG vector.

      Hi Chris, Glenn here(Billyclub). I sent you an email a few days ago and want ted to reach out to you on the forum. We talked last fall about the radar for my HDS8. We determined tbhat the Lopwarance 3kw would work just fine. Can you message me so we can get a price and get this ordered. Or you can email me at glennpangell@yahoo.com.
      Thanks Chris, talk with you soon.

      Chris, Osprey47 (Joe) here. I am planning on adding autopilot to my BHM36 currently with National Marine dual cylinder quadrant, a Chr-Lynn steering pump and 14gal hydraulic tank and Faria rudder angle indicator. I am looking at Simrad AP28 with AC42, RC42 and an RP160 pump.
      Three questions: Can I expect any complications with installation/operation given the steering system? I am located in Chesapeake Bay; can you recommend someone to do the installation? and, finally, Can you beat Defender pricing? Thanks! joe

      Hi Chris, Dogbar(Jim) here. can you give me any info on Garmin Panoptix? Seems like lots of freshwater use but not much when I look for offshore. The Garmin guys aren't much help either. Give me a call or email at Jim@dogbar.biz. Thanks Jim

      Hi Chris, this is Following C my name is Chris also. I have a robertson Ap 45 autopilot and I am in need of a new rudder feedback model RF 45. Wondering if you might have access to one. New on eBay over $600, maybe a rebuilt unit?

      I see that garmin has come out with its latest line and I was wondering what happened to all the old working display stuff that everyone has replaced. I have a 4212 now and would like something similar in size so I can run charts and sonar on different screens but I don't really have it to kick in for a new one. Do these get wholesaled somewhere? Can you pick these up on the cheap?

      Chris, wanted to reach out to you for some advice/pricing on doing an electronic upgrade. I am thinking of purchasing/installing 2 garmin 1040xs and the gcv10 sounder along with a radome either 18 or 24. Any advice would be recommended. I like the down vu capability and the chirp technology. Thank you, Brian Dailey

      check out thread "LED" lighting, last page , from oldshell, precision . thanks for getting the lights for john at al/johns for me. their good people. Al is top shelf outboard mechanic, second generation, who takes care of my Evinrude's, his father (RIP) did work for me in the 70's, loyalty is everything to me as you will see. The AP works great and as planned does the work of driving the boat while I do other task's, I think i'll call it jose'. call me when the furuno is in. thanks Larry
