Interesting some of the issues people have had or have with their AP.

Have a Raymarine 5000+ and for five thousand miles up and down the ICW over the last 4 years...it doesn't even wander when going under bridges.

Guess I'm lucky...I have a problem when keying one radio..plan on fixing that before leaving in Dec.

Have had good luck with them in numerous Sea Rays thought the years that I captained or delivered...same performance...pretty near perfect.

Steel bridges get mine. I can pass under 17' bridges, so there is some serious steel seriously close. That's what will get mine. A high rise or open swing or draw is ok, but for safety, hand steer there.

For those with wandering AP's, a good tech can dial in the gain, reset, etc parameters and really improve performance. I learned to tune mine, but it was not easy. A bud with a 43 Scarborough lived with sloppy ap for years, finally got a whiz tech to tune it. Bingo, rock solid. I might even get that tech to tweak mine, even though it seems ok. The autotuning leaves much to be desired.
