common sense and navigational judgement Always      maintain a permanent watch so you can respond to situations as      they develop    CAUTION Calibration    When supplied this product is calibrated to default settings which    should provide initial stable performance for most boats To ensure    optimum performance on your boat the commissioning procedures    in the SPX5 Sport Installation  Setup Guide must be completed    before this product is used    Your Raymarine SPX5 Sport system will add a new dimension to your boating    enjoyment However it is the skippers responsibility to ensure the safety of the boat    at all times by following these basic rules     Ensure that someone is present at the helm AT ALL TIMES to take manual        control in an emergency     Make sure that all members of crew know how to disengage the autopilot     Regularly check for other boats and any obstacles to navigation  no matter how        clear the sea appears a dangerous situation can develop rapidly     Maintain an accurate record of the boats position by using either a navigation aid        or visual bearings     Maintain a continuous plot of your boats position on a current chart Ensure that        the locked autopilot heading will steer the boat clear of all obstacles Make proper        allowance for tidal set  the autopilot cannot     Even when your autopilot is locked onto the desired track using a navigation aid        always maintain a log and make regular positional plots Navigation signals can        produce significant errors under some circumstances and the autopilot will not be        able to detect these errorsEMC Conformance    All Raymarine equipment and accessories are designed to the best industry    standards for use in the recreational marine

course angle is set at 20 You can adjust this angle in Dealer Calibration      see SmartPilot X5 Sport Installation  Commissioning Guide14 Adjusting pilot performance      The principal method of adjusting the performance of an SPX5 Sport system is by      changing the response level This controls the relationship between the course      keeping accuracy of the SPX5 Sport system and the amount of helmdrive activity      Changing the response level should be the only adjustment you need to make to your      SPX5 Sport system on a regular basis      When you first turn on your SPX5 Sport 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 X5 Sport Installation  Setup Guide for details Changes      made using user Calibration will be retained when the SPX5 Sport system is      switched off      You 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 on      Response levels      As 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 power      The SPX5 Sport system has nine levels of response       Levels 9 to 7 give the tightest course keeping and greatest rudder activity and         power consumption This can lead to a rough passage in open waters as the         SPX5 Pilot may fight the sea       Levels 6 to 4 should give good course keeping with crisp well controlled turns         under normal operating conditions       Levels 3 to 1 minimize the amount of pilot activity This conserves power but may         compromise shortterm coursekeeping accuracy

Overview   Your SPX5 Sport system provides a Track mode to enable you to automatically   follow a route or track set on your chartplotter or GPS   A track is a predefined path through a series of waypoints with each track leg being   a straight line between 2 consecutive waypoints                                                                   Waypoint

your boat on the required track and automatically compensate for tidal streams   and leeway   Requirements for Track mode   To operate in Track mode the SPX5 Sport system must receive route information   from a suitable navigation system such as    A SeaTalk compatible chartplotter or GPS unit    An NMEA 0183 or NMEA2000 compatible chartplotter or GPS unit    A SeaTalkng compatible chartplotter   Refer to the SmartPilot X5 Sport Installation  Commissioning Guide for connection   details   Starting position and heading   Before entering Track mode ensure that the boat is as close as possible to the actual   track and course heading see Track keeping  Cross Track Error on page 15 When   you enter Track mode the SPX5 Sport system will steer the boat onto the required   track14

possible This is to avoid potential collision with charted objects that may     be near the defined path     The Raymarine Track keeping algorithm ensures safe operation by correcting any     XTE as quickly as possible but with a maximum convergence angle of 30 with the     Track Leg It then maintains the vessel tightly on the desired track     Large cross track error     If a cross track error of greater than 03 nm occurs the SPX5 Sport system will sound     a Large Cross Track Error warning and the Pilot Controller will show whether you are     to the port Pt or starboard Stb of the

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.
