senator Posted March 26, 2010 Share Posted March 26, 2010 Anyone know how a simrad st 6000 autopilot works? Did try pushing the on button on a recent trip up the new cut, assuming that turning it on would hold the course it was on, instead it turned the boat about 40 degrees and put the boat on a collision course with the bank resulting in a very near miss. I have never used it before and have no intention of plotting courses for it but it would be nice to be able to turn it on to hold it's course for a few minutes, I am guessing that it took off on it's last programmed heading but it was not nice 6' from the bank.
