Drive Installation and Setup GuideAlthough the compass calibration removes most of the alignment error small errors a few degreesu have completed the initial compass calibration you can make further adjustments to the alignment without having to swing the compass againCheck the heading reading against a number of known headings plot a deviation curve and determine the heading alignment value that will give the lowest error You can then enter this value on the Heading Alignment screen as described aboveIf the average heading error is more than 5 check there are no items close to the compass that could cause an unwanted magnetic influence You should also consider moving the fluxgate compass and performing the compass deviation correction procedure again circling more slowly and in more

can vary widely in their response to helm and by adjusting the rudder gain you can change the SPX5R Drive systems steering Rudder gain is a measure of how much helm the SPX5R Drive system applies to correct course errors higher settings mean more rudder is the following test to determine whether the rudder gain is set you have set the SPX5R Drive response to level as described above2Motor your boat at a typical cruising speed in clear waterIt is easier to recognize the steering response in calm sea conditions where wave action does not mask steering to enter Auto mode then alter course by 40if the rudder gain is adjusted correctly the 40 course change should result in a crisp turn followed by an overshoot of no more than 5if the rudder gain setting is too high the 40 course change will result in a distinct overshoot of more than 5 and there may be a distinct S in the course ACorrect this oversteer by reducing the rudder gain settingif the rudder gain is too low the boats performance will be sluggish it will take a long time to make the 40 turn and there will be no overshoot Correct this understeer by increasing the rudder gain setting AdjustingTo adjust the rudder gain1Enter
