torque restraint will rotate Hold the torque restraint away from the dashboard to avoid contant with any protruding the pin after useInspect the Pin and RClip for any wear or damage prior to reuseStandby mode steering by handAt any time you wish to take manual control of the vessel and disengage the autopilotpress the key WARNING Maintain a permanent watchAutomatic course control makes it easier to steer a boat but it is NOT a substitute for good seamanship ALWAYS maintain a permanent watch by the helm 1 Basic Operation5 In Standby modeYou have manual control of the boatThe display shows STANDBY and the boats current compass headingUsing the autopilot to steer to a headingBefore engaging the autopilot ensure you can steer the boat satisfactorily by hand then steady the boat on the required headingTo engage the autopilot for automatic steeringPress the auto keyThe SPX5R Drive system will steer the boat on the chosen heading which is shown on the display This mode is also known as pointandshoot Changing course in Auto modeIn Auto mode use 1 101 and 10 to change the locked heading in either 1 or 10 stepsUse or to apply changes to port and 1 10 for changes to starboard For example press three times for a 30 course change to port X5R Drive Operating Auto mode you can carry out an AutoTurn of 90 by pressing 10 for an AutoTurn to port or 10 for an AutoTurn to starboard Avoiding obstaclesWhen your boat is under autopilot control you can change course to avoid the obstacle then resume your previous course You can eitherManually steer away from the obstacle immediately This is especially useful when a quick course change is required eg in an emergency situationUse 1 10and 10 to change the locked heading Steering awayThe preferred method for steering away from obstacles is1Press standby to return to Standby mode2Manually turn the wheel to steer away from the obstacle3Press to reengage Auto modeIf you do not have time to engage Standby mode eg in an emergencyually turn the steering wheel to steer away from the obstacle whist still in Auto mode When you have passed the obstacle press standby then to reengage Auto on the previous locked a change of

Controller shows whether the deviation is to port or 1 Basic Operation7 To cancel an Off Course alarm press standby to return to manual steering If the heading recovers or if you change course the alarm clears The default off course angle is set at 20 You can adjust this angle in Dealer Calibration see SmartPilot X5R Drive Installation Commissioning pilot performanceThe principal method of adjusting the performance of an SPX5R Drive system is by changing the response level This controls the relationship between the course keeping accuracy of the SPX5R Drive system and the amount of helmdrive the response level should be the only adjustment you need to make to your SPX5R Drive system on a regular basis When you first turn on your SPX5 Drive system after installation the response will initially be set to the default level of 5 but you can change this level in User Calibration refer to your SmartPilot X5R Drive Installation Setup Guide for detailsChanges made using user Calibration will be retained when the SPX5R Drive system is switched offYou can also make temporary adjustments to the response level to quickly match performance to changing conditions Note however that these temporary changes to response level will be lost when the system is powered off with the default value being reapplied when the system is next switched onResponse levelsAs a general rule higher response values give tighter course keeping eg for pilotage in confined and sheltered waters Lower values reduce drive activity and conserve battery powerThe SPX5R Drive system has nine levels of responseLevels 9 to 7 give the tightest course keeping and greatest rudder activity and power consumptionhis can lead to a rough passage in open waters as the SPX5R Pilot may fight the seaLevels 6 to 4 should give good course keeping with crisp well controlled turns under normal operating 3 to 1 minimize the amount of pilot activity This conserves power but may compromise shortterm coursekeeping X5R Drive Operating adjusting response To make temporary adjustments to the response level as required1Press and release and simultaneously to display the RESPONSE screen Note The

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
