Martin (B),

How did your linear AP fail at 60,000nm? What specifically failed?

We had an issue where the brushes in the electric motor wore down to almost nothing. We swapped the motors from our rotary drive, which was barely used, to our linear drive and all is good now. Of course now I'm trying to find brushes for it and apparently Raymarine just wants you to buy a brand new linear AP!

Just curious what other failures others have experienced. Sorry for the thread drift.
