    Default Raymarine courses computer

    It seen likely that our course compute may have seen better day .
    It's the old type S2 pilot.
    Problem is will a new compute fit with all the other instrument or will I have to buy add on bits ?
    Any help would be great .

    If any one who may had the same problem I be interested how you may have sorted the problem .
    Problem ..once turned on the display says standby but after 10 second saying no link and the steering locks as if it's in auto .
    Only way to release the lock steering is to turn it off or as I did remover the clutch cables from the computer.

    If you want a definitive answer, ask Raymarine. Don't necessarily rely on posts here.

    If that is your attitude to contributors on here why are you still here ?

    Your answer could equally read if you want a partisan, commercially biased answer ask "XYZ" (the manufacturer).

    It is my view answers and attitude such as this is why this forum has been declining so much over the past few years. Why on earth would contributors with valuable knowledge and experience contribute just to find the advice and experience offered freely and in good faith simply derided by keyboard critics with no actual contribution.

    Because I always try to give the most accurate and appropriate answers to posters' questions. When (if) you ever get as many "thank you" messages as I've had, you may begin to understand.

    Simply because Vic needs the correct answer, not what some random anonymous poster cares to post. As it happens, Vic hasn't given enough information for anyone to answer his question ( what does "will a new compute fit with all the other instrument" mean to you?). He needs to email Raymarine with details of his system, and ask their advice.

    Within the last few years I got Raymarine to change the main board in my S2, I also managed to pick up an second hand S3 which is what I am using at the moment, worth a ring to see if they are still doing this

    Thanks john I try again to morrow ,
    I did try another raymarine service agent , but he wasn't very helpful , just suggested I send my old computer in for them to check .
    If I was back in the UK that wouldn't be a problem , but we not .

    You can will be fine with the expensive bit, the linear motor and also with the fluxgate compass and ruddern sensor. Not sure about the control display.

    Hi Vic,

    I am pretty sure the new generation of Raymarine Course Computers will interface with existing ST60 instruments, including the ST60 autopilot control head. You will probably need a Seatalk to SeaTalk NG convertor so that they talk to each other.

    Best thing to do is download the install/operating manual for the course computer you are looking at, this should give details of what instruments the computer can be interfaced with and what extra bits you might need to do it.
