Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Raymarine - Wind direction/speed failure

Jean-Pierre's MacBook Air <jgermain@...>

Hello Bill,

My boat is all Raymarine as, given its early number, the electronics were verily Stone Age… including a GPS receiver capable of only 3 SAT signals and could display only LAT/LON.

So my masthead unit is Raymarine as everything else in the Nav side of things.

Thanks for the pointers for trouble shooting.

Cheers from Santa Marta Columbia.

Is your mast head unit the original B&G 213?  

If so, it is very unlikely that the problem is at the top of the mast because the wind speed and direction are independently generated and transmitted.  It is POSSIBLE a bad ground or power connection is the issue at the top of the mast, but there is a lot to check before you climb up there.

Here are a couple of good resources for troubleshooting:

Hi Gang,

I'm not receiving wind speed or direction from my mast head unit.  The ITC 5 is online and seems to work OK.

Is it likely the head unit is fubar?

Thank you for the help as you may imagine...
