product’s Technical Specification), water intrusion
and subsequent equipment failure may occur if the
product is subjected to commercial high-pressure
washing. Raymarine will not warrant products
subjected to high-pressure washing.
Disclaimer
Raymarine does not warrant that this product is

Raymarine is not responsible for damages or injuries
caused by your use or inability to use the product,
by the interaction of the product with products
manufactured by others, or by errors in information
utilized by the product supplied by third parties.
EMC installation guidelines
Raymarine equipment and accessories conform to
the appropriate Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
regulations, to minimize electromagnetic interference
between equipment and minimize the effect such
interference could have on the performance of your
system
Correct installation is required to ensure that EMC
performance is not compromised.
Note: In areas of extreme EMC interference,
some slight interference may be noticed on the
product. Where this occurs the product and the
source of the interference should be separated by
a greater distance.
For optimum EMC performance we recommend
that wherever possible:
• Raymarine equipment and cables connected to
it are:
– At least 1 m (3 ft) from any equipment
transmitting or cables carrying radio signals e.g.
VHF radios, cables and antennas. In the case
of SSB radios, the distance should be increased
to 7 ft (2 m).
– More than 2 m (7 ft) from the path of a radar
beam. A radar beam can normally be assumed
to spread 20 degrees above and below the
radiating element.
• The product is supplied from a separate battery
from that used for engine start. This is important to
8
prevent erratic behavior and data loss which can
occur if the engine start does not have a separate
battery.
• Raymarine specified cables are used.
• Cables are not cut or extended, unless doing so is
detailed in the installation manual.
Note: Where constraints on the installation
prevent any of the above recommendations,
always ensure the maximum possible separation
between different items of electrical equipment, to
provide the best conditions for EMC performance
throughout the installation
Suppression ferrites
• Raymarine cables may be pre-fitted or supplied
with suppression ferrites. These are important for
correct EMC performance. If ferrites are supplied
separately to the cables (i.e. not pre-fitted), you
must fit the supplied ferrites, using the supplied
instructions.
• If a ferrite has to be removed for any purpose (e.g.
installation or maintenance), it must be replaced in
the original position before the product is used.
• Use only ferrites of the correct type, supplied by
Raymarine or its authorized dealers.
• Where an installation requires multiple ferrites to
be added to a cable, additional cable clips should
be used to prevent stress on the connectors due
to the extra weight of the cable.
Connections to other equipment
Requirement for ferrites on non-Raymarine cables
If your Raymarine equipment is to be connected
to other equipment using a cable not supplied by
Raymarine, a suppression ferrite MUST always be
attached to the cable near the Raymarine unit.

SeaTalkng (Next Generation) is an enhanced
protocol for connection of compatible marine
instruments and equipment. It replaces the older
SeaTalk and SeaTalk2 protocols.
SeaTalkng utilizes a single backbone to which
compatible instruments connect using a spur. Data
and power are carried within the backbone. Devices
that have a low draw can be powered from the
network, although high current equipment will need
to have a separate power connection.
SeaTalkng is a proprietary extension to NMEA 2000
and the proven CAN bus technology. Compatible
NMEA 2000 and SeaTalk / SeaTalk2 devices can
also be connected using the appropriate interfaces
or adaptor cables as required.
NMEA 2000
NMEA 2000 offers significant improvements over
NMEA 0183, most notably in speed and connectivity.
Up to 50 units can simultaneously transmit and
receive on a single physical bus at any one time,
with each node being physically addressable. The
standard was specifically intended to allow for
a whole network of marine electronics from any
manufacturer to communicate on a common bus via
standardized message types and formats.
SeaTalk
SeaTalk is a protocol which enables compatible
instruments to connect to each other and share data.
The SeaTalk cable system is used to connect
compatible instruments and equipment. The cable
carries power and data and enables connection
without the need for a central processor.
Additional instruments and functions can be added to
a SeaTalk system, simply by plugging them into the
network. SeaTalk equipment can also communicate
with other non-SeaTalk equipment via the NMEA
0183 standard, provided a suitable interface is used.

3.7 Warnings and cautions
Important: Before proceeding, ensure that you
have read and understood the warnings and
cautions provided in the Chapter 1 Important
information section of this document.
3.8 General location requirements
When selecting a location for your display it is
important to consider a number of factors.
Key factors which can affect product performance
are:
• Ventilation
To ensure adequate airflow:
– Ensure that equipment is mounted in a
compartment of suitable size.
– Ensure that ventilation holes are not obstructed.
Allow adequate separation of equipment.
Any specific requirements for each system
component are provided later in this chapter.
• Mounting surface.
Ensure equipment is adequately supported on a
secure surface. Do not mount units or cut holes
in places which may damage the structure of the
vessel.
• Cable entry
Ensure the unit is mounted in a location which
allows proper routing and connection of cables:
– Minimum bend radius of 100 mm (3.94 in)
unless otherwise stated.
– Use cable supports to prevent stress on
connectors.
• Water ingress
The display is suitable for mounting both above
and below decks. It is waterproof to IPX6
standard. Although the unit is waterproof, it is
good practice to locate it in a protected area away
from prolonged and direct exposure to rain and
salt spray.
• Electrical interference
Select a location that is far enough away
from devices that may cause interference,
such as motors, generators and radio
transmitters/receivers.
• Magnetic compass
Select a location that is at least 3 ft (1 m) away
from a magnetic compass.
• Power supply
Select a location that is as close as possible to the
boat’s DC power source. This will help to keep
cable runs to a minimum

Routing cables
Cables must be routed correctly, to maximize
performance and prolong cable life.
• Do NOT bend cables excessively. Wherever
possible, ensure a minimum bend diameter of 200
mm (8 in) / minimum bend radius of 100 mm (4 in).
Suitable cables
Connecting SeaTalkng® cables
200 mm (8 in)
100 mm (4 in)
• Protect all cables from physical damage and
exposure to heat. Use trunking or conduit where
possible. Do NOT run cables through bilges or
doorways, or close to moving or hot objects.
• Secure cables in place using tie-wraps or lacing
twine. Coil any extra cable and tie it out of the way.
• Where a cable passes through an exposed
bulkhead or deckhead, use a suitable watertight
feed-through.
• Do NOT run cables near to engines or fluorescent
lights.
Always route data cables as far away as possible
from:
• other equipment and cables,
• high current carrying AC and DC power lines,
• antennae.
D12615-2
Caution: Pulling cables
Do NOT use cords or ropes, attached
to cable connectors, to pull cables
through restricted apertures (e.g. as in
bulkheads), as this could cause damage
to cables.
1. Rotate the locking collar on the unit to the
unlocked position.
2. Ensure the cable’s connector is correctly oriented.
3. Fully insert the cable connector.
4. Rotate locking collar clockwise (2 clicks) until it is
in the locked position.
Strain relief
SeaTalkng® product loading
Ensure adequate strain relief is provided. Protect
connectors from strain and ensure they will not pull
out under extreme sea conditions.
The number of products that can be connected
to a SeaTalkng backbone depends on the power
consumption of each product and the physical overall
length of the backbone.
Cable shielding
Ensure that all data cables are properly shielded
that the cable shielding is intact (e.g. hasn’t been
scraped off by being squeezed through a tight area).
22
SeaTalkng products have a Load Equivalency
Number (LEN), which indicates the product’s power
consumption. The LEN for each product can be
found in the product’s Technical Specification.

4.3 SeaTalkng® power supply
In-line fuse and thermal breaker ratings
Power is supplied to the product over the SeaTalkng
backbone.
The SeaTalkng® network’s power supply requires an
in-line fuse or thermal breaker to be fitted.
A SeaTalkng backbone requires one 12 V dc power
supply, connected to the SeaTalkng backbone. This
can be provided by:
• a battery (1), via the distribution panel,
Thermal breaker rating
5A
3 A (if only connecting one
device)
Note:
• an Autopilot Control Unit (ACU)(2),
• an SPX course computer
In-line fuse rating
(2),
• for 24 V vessels a 5 amp, regulated, continuous
24 V dc to 12 V dc converter is required.
• The suitable fuse rating for the thermal breaker
is dependent on the number of devices you are
connecting. If in doubt consult an authorized
Raymarine dealer.
Note:
SeaTalkng® system loading
• (1) The battery used for starting the vessel’s
engine(s) should NOT be used to power the
SeaTalkng backbone as this can cause sudden
voltage drops, when the engines are started.
The maximum loading / LEN for a SeaTalkng system
depends on the length of the backbone.
• (2) The ACU-100 and SPX-5 cannot be used to
power the SeaTalkng backbone.

Small systems
If the backbone length is 60 m (197 ft) or less, the
power connection point may be connected at any
point in the backbone.
Large systems
If the backbone length is greater than 60 m (197 ft),
the power connection point should be connected at
a point that creates a balanced current draw from
each side of the backbone. The Load Equivalency
Number (LEN) is used to determine the power
connection point for the system.
Power distribution — SeaTalkng®
Recommendations and best practice.
LEN = 1
0
• Only use approved SeaTalkng® power cables. Do
NOT use a power cable designed for, or supplied
with, a different product.
LEN = 3
LEN = 1
• See below for more information on implementation
for some common power distribution scenarios.
Important: When planning and wiring, take into
consideration other products in your system, some
of which (e.g. sonar modules) may place large
power demand peaks on the vessel’s electrical
system.
12 V dc
LEN = 3
LEN = 1
LEN = 1
D13424-1
In the example above the system has an overall LEN
of 10, so the optimum connection point would be to
have 5 LEN either side of the connection point.
Note: The information provided below is for
guidance only, to help protect your product. It
covers common vessel power arrangements, but
does NOT cover every scenario. If you are unsure
how to provide the correct level of protection,
please consult an authorized Raymarine dealer or
a suitably qualified professional marine electrician.
Implementation — direct connection to battery
• SeaTalkng® power cables may be connected
directly to the vessel's battery, via a suitably rated
fuse or breaker.
Cables and connections
23
• You MUST fit a suitably rated fuse or breaker
between the red wire and the battery’s positive
terminal.
• Refer to the inline fuse ratings provided in the
product’s documentation.
• If you need to extend the length of the power
cable, ensure you use suitably rated cable and
that sufficient power (12 V dc) is available at the
SeaTalkng® backbone’s power connection.
• If you need to extend the length of the power
cable, ensure you use suitably rated cable and
that sufficient power (12 V dc) is available at the
SeaTalkng® backbone’s power connection.
Important: Be aware that the suitable fuse rating
for the thermal breaker or fuse is dependent on the
number of devices you are connecting.

Battery connection scenario A: suitable for a vessel with
a common RF ground point. In this scenario, if your
product’s power cable is supplied with a separate drain
wire then it should be connected to the vessel’s common
ground point.
Where more than 1 piece of equipment shares a
breaker you must provide protection for the individual
circuits. E.g. by connecting an in-line fuse for each
power circuit.

• Alternatively, the SeaTalkng® power cable may be
connected to a suitable breaker or switch on the
vessel's distribution panel or factory-fitted power
distribution point.
• The distribution point should be fed from the
vessel’s primary power source by 8 AWG
(8.36 mm2) cable.
• Ideally, all equipment should be wired to individual
suitably-rated thermal breakers or fuses, with
appropriate circuit protection. Where this is not
possible and more than 1 item of equipment
shares a breaker, use individual in-line fuses
for each power circuit to provide the necessary
protection.
• In all cases, observe the recommended
breaker / fuse ratings provided in the product’s
documentation.

7.1 Evolution autopilot installation
For information on installing and connecting an
Evolution autopilot system, refer to the installation
instructions that accompany the EV-1 and EV-2
units, as appropriate.
7.2 Autopilot commissioning — main
differences between Evolution and
SPX systems
The Evolution system provides a number of features
to improve upon the commissioning process required
by existing SPX and some other autopilot systems.
• Built-in heading and attitude sensor — no
additional fluxgate compass required.
• Automatic set-up — the rudder gain, counter
rudder, manual compass calibration and autolearn
settings required for existing SPX systems are no
longer required. This results in a greatly simplified
dockside calibration process for Evolution autopilot
systems.

p70 / p70R
7.3 Autopilot response levels
7.4 Initial setup and commissioning
The Evolution autopilot system features a number
of different response levels to help you quickly
configure the system for optimum performance for
the current conditions. In Wind Vane mode, Wind
Trim is automatically set by your selected response
level.
Commissioning pre-requisites
The available response levels are:
• Leisure — suitable for long passages where tight
heading control is not critical.
• Cruising — good course-keeping without
overworking the pilot.
• Performance — emphasis on tight heading
control.
You can change the response level at any time by
selecting MENU > Response Level. Then select
Save to keep the changes.
Before commissioning your system for the first time,
check that the following processes have been carried
out correctly:
• Autopilot system installation completed in
accordance with the Installation instructions.
• SeaTalkng network installed in accordance with the
SeaTalkng Reference Manual.
• Where fitted, the GPS receiver has been installed
and connected in accordance with the associated
Installation instructions.
Check also that the commissioning engineer is
familiar with the installation and components of the
autopilot system including:
• Vessel type.
• Vessel steering system information.
• What the autopilot will be used for.
• System layout: components and connections (you
should have a schematic of the vessel’s autopilot
system).
Initial set-up
Initial set-up involves the following steps:
Important: Before proceeding with the initial
set-up or commissioning of an Evolution autopilot
system with a p70, p70s, p70R or p70Rs Pilot
Controller, ensure that the Pilot controller, EV and
ACU software is updated to the latest versions.

7.8 Adjusting the hard-over time —
SmartPilot and SPX
7.9 Compass linearization — Evolution
autopilots
On vessels without a rudder reference transducer, it
is important to set a Hard Over Time.
The EV unit’s internal compass needs to compensate
for local and the Earth’s magnetic fields. This is
achieved using an automatic process known as
linearization.
Before attempting to follow this procedure ensure
you have read and understood the Rudder Check
warning provided in this document.
To estimate your hard over time follow the steps
below:
1. Adjust your Rudder Gain setting to the maximum
value, making a note of the original value. The
Rudder Gain setting can be accessed from the
Drive Setting menu: Menu > Set-up > Autopilot
Calibration > Drive Settings > Rudder Gain.
2. With the autopilot in Standby, manually turn the
rudder / engine full to port. (For vessels with
power steering the engine should be running
when turning the rudder.)
3. Engage Auto mode.
4. Press the +10 and +1 buttons at the same time
(p70/p70s) or use the Rotary (p70R/p70Rs) to
alter your locked heading by 90 degrees, use a
stop watch to time the movement of the rudder /
engine.
5. Estimate how long it would take to move the
rudder from full port to full starboard. This
estimate is your Hard Over Time.
6. Enter this estimate as your Hard Over Time. The
Hard Over time setting can be accessed from the
Drive Settings menu: Menu > Set-up > Autopilot
Calibration > Drive Settings > Hard Over Time.
7. Change your Rudder Gain back to its original
value.
8. After setting your Hard Over Time, observe your
autopilot’s behavior and if required, make small
adjustments to the Hard Over Time value until a
satisfactory result it achieved.
Warning: Rudder check
If no rudder reference has been fitted you
MUST ensure that adequate provision is
made to prevent the steering mechanism
from impacting the end stops.
Initial linearization
When the EV unit is first installed and powered-up (or
after a factory reset or compass restart) linearization
is required. A progress bar is displayed to indicate
linearization is required.
The linearization process will start automatically
after your vessel has turned approximately 100°
at a speed of between 3 –15 knots. Linearization
requires no user input, however at least a 270°
turn is required before linearization can complete.
The progress bar will fill to indicate progress, the
progress bar will turn Red if the process is paused or
otherwise interrupted. Time it takes to complete the
linearization will vary according to the characteristics
of the vessel, the installation environment of the
EV unit, and the levels of magnetic interference
at the time of conducting the process. Sources of
significant magnetic interference may increase the
time required to complete the linearization process.
Examples of such sources include:
• Marine pontoons
• Metal-hulled vessels
• Underwater cables
You can speed-up the linearization process by
completing a full 360° turn (at a speed of 3 – 15
knots). You can also restart the linearization process
at any time by selecting the Restart Compass menu
item.
Once the initial linearization is completed the
Deviation page is displayed and the current
maximum compass deviation is shown.

2. Select Set-up.
3. Select Diagnostics.
4. Select About Pilot.
The details related to the pilot diagnostics are
displayed.
5. Scroll down to the bottom of the list to view the
entry for Deviation.
Note: If “- -” is displayed as the Deviation value, it
means that linearization has not been successfully
completed yet.
Adjusting the Compass Offset
Compass deviation
If the reported deviation is 45° or higher, it is
highly recommended that the EV unit is moved
and re-installed in a location which is subject to
less magnetic interference. After the linearization
process has successfully completed you can check
the current deviation value at anytime from the
diagnostics pages.
Note: If “- -” is displayed as the Deviation value, it
means that linearization has not been successfully
completed yet.
With the pilot in Standby:
1. From the Vessel Settings menu: (Menu >
Set-up > Autopilot Calibration > Vessel
Settings).
2. Select Compass Offset.
3. Use the +/- 10 button (p70/p70s) or ROTARY
control (p70R/p70Rs) to adjust the compass
offset as appropriate.
The Compass Offset can be adjusted between
–10° and +10°.
Check the compass heading data
As part of the autopilot system commissioning
process, it is recommended that you check the
compass heading value displayed, against a good
known heading source on various headings.
Note: Once the linearization process has
completed, it is possible that the heading value
may have a slight offset of 2 to 3 degrees. This
is common where installation space is limited,
and the EV unit cannot be properly aligned to the
vessel's longitudinal axis. In this case, it is possible
to manually adjust the Compass Offset value.
Note: Do NOT rely on the reported heading until
compass linearization and alignment is complete.
System monitoring and adaptation
To ensure optimum performance, after the initial
linearization process is complete the EV continues to
monitor and adapt the compass linearization to suit
current conditions.
If the conditions for linearization are less than ideal,
the automatic linearization process temporarily
pauses until conditions improve again. The following
conditions can cause the linearization process to
temporarily pause:
• Boat speed < 3 knots.
• Boat speed > 15 knots.
• Rate-of-turn is too slow.
• Significant magnetic interference is present
Accessing the compass deviation indicator
1. Select MENU.

p70 / p70R
7.10 Compass lock
Once you are satisfied with the compass accuracy,
you can lock the setting to prevent the autopilot
system from completing a further automatic
linearization in the future.
This feature is particularly useful for vessels in
environments that are exposed to strong magnetic
disturbances on a regular basis (such as offshore
wind farms or very busy rivers, for example). In these
situations it may be desirable to use the Compass
lock feature to disable the continuous linearization
process, as the magnetic interference may build a
heading error over time.
Note: The compass lock may be released at any
time, to allow the compass continuous linearization
to restart. This is particularly useful if planning a
long voyage. The earth’s magnetic field will change
significantly from one geographical location to
another, and the compass can continuously
compensate for the changes, ensuring you
maintain accurate heading data throughout the
voyage.
Locking the compass
Follow the steps below to lock the compass
linearization.
From the Commissioning menu: (Menu > Set-up >
Autopilot Calibration > Commissioning)
1. Select Compass Lock.
2. Select On.
The compass linearization is now locked.

satisfactory result it achieved.
Warning: Rudder check
If no rudder reference has been fitted you
MUST ensure that adequate provision is
made to prevent the steering mechanism
from impacting the end stops.
8.9 Sea trial calibration
Before you can use the autopilot open water checks
are required. The water must be calm, with light
or no wind. Leave plenty of room to manoeuvre.
The Sea Trial wizard guides you through the steps
required for Sea trial calibration.
The Sea trial wizard includes the following steps:
• Swing compass
• Align compass to GPS
• Align compass manually
• Auto Learn.
You can access the Sea trial wizard at any time

Note: Sailing vessels should perform the sea trial
under engine power.
Note: The Sea trial wizard can be cancelled at any
time by pressing the Standby button.
Warning: Seatrial calibration
Ensure you have sufficient sea room
for calibration. The seatrial calibration
maneuvers require a clear, familiar area of
water. Ensure you are not likely to collide
with any vessel or other obstruction during
calibration.
Warning: Maintain sensible speeds
The autopilot may make unexpected
turns.
Compass swing
You will need to turn your vessel in slow circles
while the system automatically makes adjustments
to account for compass deviation. Each 360-degree
circle should take no less than two minutes, and you
should complete at least two circles.
1. Start moving vessel in slow even circles, then
press START.
2. Keep speed to below 2 knots. Watch the display
to ensure your turn rate is not too fast. If the
message ‘Slow Down’ is displayed reduce your
rate of turn, this can be achieved by slowing
down and / or steering in a wider circle.
If a 'Slow Down' message is displayed the current
circle will have to be repeated.
3. When the compass has been calibrated, a
message will be displayed showing the detected
deviation. If this is more than 15 degrees you will
need to abort the calibration process and resite
the compass further away from metal items, then
repeat the calibration process. If you still find a
deviation of more than 15 degrees, contact your
Raymarine dealer for advice. If the deviation is
within acceptable limits, press CONTINUE.
You can cancel Seatrial calibration at any time by
pressing STANDBY.

Aligning compass to GPS
Note: Systems without a GPS will skip this section
and go straight to Manual compass alignment.
If your system has a GPS connected to your data
network (SeaTalk, SeaTalkng or NMEA), the autopilot
is tuned to the GPS heading while you steer to a
known magnetic heading. This step provides a rough
alignment and minimizes the amount of compass
fine tuning required.
1. Steer the vessel on a steady course with minimal
tide, increase speed to more than 3 knots and
press START to align the compass to GPS.
2. Follow the on-screen instructions until the
process completes, press the CONTINUE button
when it is available to begin autolearn.
You can cancel Seatrial calibration at any time by

You must have significant clear water in front of
the vessel to accommodate a series of maneuvers,
which include sudden, sharp turns. There should be
a clear area at least 100m wide and 500m ahead.
Any additional changes you make to your
system settings may require you to repeat
the calibration process.

Performing Auto learn
Auto learn is available from the Sea trial wizard, or
from the Commissioning menu.
Maintain a normal cruising speed (at least 3 kts)
throughout the auto learn process.

8.10 Checking autopilot operation
Checking counter rudder
After completing calibration, check the basic autopilot
operation, as follows:
1. Steer onto a compass heading and hold a steady
course at normal cruising speed. If necessary,
steer the vessel manually for a short time to
check how the vessel steers.
2. Ensure it is safe to engage the autopilot, then
press AUTO to lock onto the current heading.
The autopilot should hold a constant heading in
calm sea conditions.
3. Use -1, +1, -10 and +10 or the ROTARY
controller, to see how the SmartPilot alters the
course to port and starboard.
4. Press STANDBY to return to manual steering.
Counter rudder is the amount of rudder your autopilot
applies to try to prevent your vessel from over
steering. A higher counter rudder setting results in
more rudder being applied.
Checking rudder gain
To determine whether the rudder gain is set correctly,
carry out the following test:
To check the counter rudder setting:
1. Ensure you have set the autopilot response to
level 5.
2. Drive your vessel at a typical cruising speed in
clear water.
3. Press AUTO and if necessary engage the
autopilot.
4. Make a 90° course change:
• When rudder gain and counter rudder are both
set correctly, the vessel performs a smooth
continuous turn with minimal overshoot.
• If the counter rudder is too low, the vessel will
overshoot before returning slowly to the course.
• If counter rudder is too high, the vessel will
‘fight’ the turn and make a series of short,
sharp turns. This results in a very ‘mechanical’
feel as the vessel changes course.

5. If necessary, adjust the counter rudder setting.
Counter Rudder is available from the Drive
Settings menu: Menu > Set-up > Autopilot
Calibration > Drive Settings > Counter Rudder.

3.
Correct rudder gain
1. Ensure you have set the autopilot response to
level 5.
2. Drive your vessel at a typical cruising speed in
clear water.
It is easier to recognize the steering response in
calm sea conditions where wave action does not
mask steering performance.
3. Press AUTO to enter Auto mode, then alter
course by 40°:
• This course change should result in a crisp turn
followed by an overshoot of no more than 5°, If
the rudder gain is adjusted correctly.
Rudder Damping
If the autopilot is ‘hunting’ (i.e. continuously moving
the steering backwards and forwards by small
amounts) when trying to position the rudder, the
rudder damping setting will require adjustment to
minimize this.
Increasing the rudder damping value reduces
hunting. The rudder damping value should be
increased 1 level at a time until the autopilot stops
hunting. Always ensure the lowest acceptable value
is used.
If required the Rudder Damping setting can be
adjusted from the Drive Settings menu: Menu >
Set-up > Autopilot Calibration > Drive Settings >
Rudder Damping.
AutoTrim settings
• If the course change causes a distinct
overshoot (more than 5°) and/or there is a
distinct ‘S’ in the course the rudder gain is too
high.
AutoTrim determines how quickly the autopilot
applies ‘standing helm’ to correct for trim changes,
caused, for example, by changes in the wind load
on the superstructure, or an imbalance of engines.
Increasing the AutoTrim level reduces the time the
autopilot takes to return to the correct course, but
makes the vessel less stable. If the autopilot:
• If the vessel’s performance is sluggish and it
takes a long time to make the 40° turn, with no
overshoot the rudder gain is too low.
• Gives unstable course keeping and the vessel
‘snakes’ around the desired course, decrease the
AutoTrim level.
If necessary, adjust the rudder gain.
• Hangs off course for excessive periods of time,
increase the AutoTrim level.

9.4 Track mode
You can use track mode to automatically steer your
vessel.
In Track mode, the autopilot automatically steers
your vessel to a target waypoint or along a route
plotted on your multifunction display. It makes any
course changes necessary to keep your vessel on
course, automatically compensating for tidal streams
and leeway.
Track mode is available only if you have connected
the autopilot to a suitable multifunction display with
autopilot control enabled.

Cross track error
Cross track error (XTE) is the distance between the
current position and a planned track line.
There are a number of reasons why you may have a
cross track error (XTE), for example:
63
9.5 Wind vane mode (Sailing boats
only)
• Pressing the track button at a position some
distance from the route.
• Course change to avoid an obstacle.
• Waypoint arrival under certain conditions.
If the cross track error is greater than 0.3 nm, the
SmartPilot will sound the Large Cross Track Error
warning and show whether you are to the port (Pt) or
starboard (Stb) of the planned track.
When the autopilot is in Wind Vane mode it uses the
wind angle as the primary heading reference. As
changes in the true or apparent wind angle occur, it
adjusts the locked heading to maintain the original
wind angle.

You can only select Wind Vane mode if your
autopilot is receiving suitable SeaTalk, SeaTalkng, or
NMEA 2000 wind direction data.
Autopilots can maintain a course relative to either an
Apparent or True wind angle. The default setting is
Apparent wind. If required, you can change this to
True wind from the Wind Type menu.
Using wind vane mode
You can select Wind vane mode from either
STANDBY or AUTO mode:
1. Steady the vessel onto the required wind angle.
2. Select Wind vane mode:
i. Wind vane mode can be selected by pressing
the Auto and Standby buttons together, or
ii. selecting Wind vane mode from the modes
menu: Menu > Mode > Wind vane.
This will enable Wind vane mode and lock the
current wind angle. The display shows the locked
heading (e.g. 128°) and the wind angle (e.g.
WIND 145P indicates a wind angle of 145° to
port).
3. The autopilot will then adjust the vessel’s heading
to maintain the locked wind angle.
Adjusting the locked wind angle
1. You can adjust the locked wind angle by using
the -1, +1, -10 and +10 buttons, or the ROTARY
controller to change course. For example, to bear
away by 10° when the boat is on a starboard tack:
i. press -10 to turn the boat 10° to port – the
locked wind angle and locked heading will
both change by 10°.
p70 / p70R
ii. the autopilot will then adjust the locked
heading as required to maintain the new wind
angle.
Note: Because turning the vessel affects the
relationship between the true and apparent wind
angles, you should only use this method to make
minor adjustments to the wind angle. For major
changes, return to STANDBY mode, steer onto
the new heading, then re-select Wind Vane mode.
Using AutoTack in wind vane mode
The autopilot has a built in automatic tack facility
(AutoTack) that turns your vessel "relative" to the
wind angle you're currently on, and it tacks the
vessel to put you on the opposite relative wind angle.

2. Alternatively, to cancel the warning and return to
the previous heading:
i. adjust the locked wind angle using the -1, +1,
-10 and +10 buttons or the Rotary controller.
ii. press Standby to return to manual steering,
steer onto the required heading, and press
Cancel to return to Wind Vane mode with the
new wind angle.

AutoTack is always relative to wind angle and is not
adjustable.
In Wind Vane mode:
1. Using a p70 / p70s:
i. Press the -1 and -10 buttons at the same time
to Tack to port.
ii. Press the +1 and +10 buttons at the same
time to Tack to starboard.
2. Using a p70R or a p70Rs:
i. Select Tack Port from the main menu to Tack
to port.
ii. Select Tack Starboard from the main menu
to Tack to Starboard.
3.
When you AutoTack in wind vane mode, the boat
turns through the AutoTack angle. The autopilot will
then trim the heading to mirror the locked wind angle
from the previous tack.
Operating hints for wind vane mode
• Always trim your sails carefully to minimize the
amount of standing helm.
• Reef the headsail and mainsail a little early rather
than too late.
• In Wind Vane mode the autopilot will react to
long-term wind shifts, but will not correct for
short-term changes such as gusts.
• In gusty and unsteady inshore conditions, it is best
to sail a few degrees further off the wind so that
changes in wind direction can be tolerated.
• Avoid using Auto Tack in conditions where the
wind may shift suddenly.
Caution: Allow time

65
Caution: Major course changes
9.6 Power steer
When making major course changes, the
trim on the boat may change substantially.
Due to this, the autopilot may take some
time to settle accurately onto the new
course.
Power steer mode enables you to use the rotary
controller of the p70Rs or a connected joystick to
directly steer the vessel on manual heading.
Accidental gybes
The gybe inhibit feature stops the vessel from turning
away from the wind if you accidently AutoTack in the
wrong direction.
Note: For the gybe inhibit feature to work, the
autopilot needs suitable wind data.
With gybe inhibit set to Prevent Gybe:
• you will be able to perform an AutoTack through
the wind.
• the autopilot will prevent the boat from performing
an AutoTack away from the wind.
With gybe inhibit set to Allow Gybe:
• you can perform an AutoTack through or away
from the wind.
Note: Gybe inhibit feature can be changed from
the Sail Boat Settings menu: Menu > Set-up >
Autopilot Calibration > Sail Boat Settings >
Gybe Inhibit .
66
Power steer has 2 options:
• Proportional
— The rudder will behave in proportion to the
movement of the rotary control or joystick.
• Bang Bang (Joystick only)
— The rudder will move, and stay in the direction
the joystick is moved.
Engaging power steer mode
To engage Power steer mode:
1. Go to the Mode menu found in Main menu >
Mode.
2. Highlight Power steer and press SELECT.
You can change the type of steering at any time i.e.
Proportional or Bang Bang by going to the Power
steer settings in the Drive settings menu: Main
menu > Set up > Auto pilot calibration > Drive
settings > Power steer.
Note: In order to use Bang Bang mode a
connected joystick is required, the p70Rs rotary
will only perform in Proportional mode.

Some examples of alarms are:
• Anchor alarm — Used when anchored, this alerts
you to a change in depth which could mean that
the chain length requires adjusting.
• Depth and speed alarms — These alarms alert
you when your depth or speed moves outside of
specified limits, for example a minimum depth.
• MOB (Man Overboard) alarm — Received from an
MOB system.
When an alarm occurs, a message is displayed and
an audible alarm may sound.

*Rudder gain
Rudder gain is a measure of how much helm the autopilot will apply to
correct course errors.
A higher setting results in more rudder being applied. The rudder gain
setting is set automatically as part of the Auto Learn process.
• 1—9
*Counter rudder
Counter rudder is the amount of rudder the autopilot system applies to
try to prevent the vessel from yawing off course.
A higher counter rudder setting results in more rudder being applied
• 1 — 9 Do not set to 0.
Rudder damping
On autopilot systems with a rudder reference transducer, you can set the • 1 — 9
rudder damping to prevent autopilot ‘hunting’.
• 3 (default)
Increasing the rudder damping value reduces hunting. When adjusting
the value, increase the setting one level at a time until the autopilot stops
hunting. Always use the lowest acceptable value.
Rudder Damping
Rudder limit
If a rudder reference transducer is fitted, this screen is used to set the
limits of the rudder control just inside the mechanical end stops, and
thus avoid putting the steering system under unnecessary load. This
should be set when commissioning the system. The limit should be set
to approximately 5 degrees less than the maximum rudder angle.
• 10º — 40º
• 30º (default)
Note: If no rudder reference has been fitted you MUST ensure that
adequate provision is made to prevent the steering mechanism from
impacting the end stops.
Rudder offset
This specifies the offset from amidships (zero adjustment).
• -9° to 9°
Reverse rudder ref
This reverses the phase of the rudder reference display.
• Port
Note: This option is not available unless you have a rudder reference
transducer fitted.
• Starboard
Note: This option is not available on SeaTalk systems, so you would
need to reverse the RED and GREEN wires on the Rudder Reference
connection to the course computer.
*Auto Trim
The Auto Trim setting determines the rate at which the autopilot system
applies ‘standing helm’ to correct for trim changes caused by varying
wind loads on the sails or superstructure. The default Auto Trim is set
as part of the Auto Learn process.
If you need to change the setting, increase the Auto Trim one level at a
time and use the lowest acceptable value:
• If the autopilot system gives unstable course keeping or excessive
drive activity with a change in the heel angle, decrease the Auto
Trim level.
Setting
• Off
• On
Adjustment
• 1 — 4 1 = Slowest, 4 =
Fastest
• 1 (default)
• If the autopilot system reacts slowly to a heading change due to a
change in the heel angle, increase the Auto Trim level.
• If the Auto Trim level is too high, the vessel will be less stable and
snake around the desired course.
Auto Turn
This setting defines the amount of course change when performing an
auto turn.
• 10º — 125º
• 90º (default)
Note: This option cannot be changed when connected over SeaTalk.
Note: This option is only available on motor vessels.

Response level
This sets the default autopilot system response level setting. The
response level controls the relationship between course keeping
accuracy and the amount of helm / drive activity. You can make
temporary changes to response during normal operation.
Evolution
On Evolution autopilots the Response level setting is available from the
main menu: Menu > Response Level
SeaTalk and SPX SmartPilot levels

power, but may compromise short-term course-keeping accuracy.

SeaTalk and SPX SmartPilot
• 1—9
• 5 (default)
• Level 4 — 6 Should give good course keeping with crisp, well
controlled turns under normal operating conditions.
• Level 7 — 9 Gives the tightest course keeping and greatest rudder
activity (and power consumption). This can lead to a rough passage
in open waters as the SPX system may ‘fight’ the sea.

This screen determines the angle used by the OFF COURSE alarm. The • 15° to 40°
OFF COURSE alarm operates if the pilot strays off course by more than
• 20º (default)
the specified angle for more than 20 seconds.
*Turn rate limit
This limits your vessel’s rate of turn under autopilot system control. It is
only effective if your speed is greater than 12 knots.

• Proportional The steering will behave in proportion to the movement
of the rotary controller or joystick.
• Bang Bang (Joystick only) The rudder will move, and stay in the
direction a joystick is moved.

On vessels without a rudder reference transducer, it is of critical
importance to set the hard over time, to ensure accurate autopilot
operation.
The Default value is determined by Drive type selection.

13.1 Routine equipment checks
13.2 Product cleaning
Raymarine strongly recommends that you complete
a number of routine checks to ensure the correct and
reliable operation of your equipment.
Best cleaning practices.
Complete the following checks on a regular basis:
• If your product includes a display screen, do NOT
wipe the screen with a dry cloth, as this could
scratch the screen coating.
• Examine all cables for signs of damage or wear
and tear.
• Check that all cables are securely connected.
When cleaning products:
• Do NOT use abrasive, or acid or ammonia based
products.
• Do NOT use a jet wash.
96
p70 / p70R
13.3 Cleaning the display screen
13.4 Cleaning the display case
A coating is applied to the display screen. This
makes it water repellent, and prevents glare. To
avoid damaging this coating, follow this procedure:
1. Switch off the power to the display.
2. Rinse the screen with fresh water to remove all
dirt particles and salt deposits.
3. Allow the screen to dry naturally.
4. If any smears remain, very gently wipe the screen
with a clean microfibre cleaning cloth (available
from an opticians).
The display unit is a sealed unit and does not require
regular cleaning. If it is necessary to clean the unit,
follow this basic procedure:
1. Switch off the power to the display.
2. Wipe the display with a clean, soft cloth (a
microfibre cloth is ideal).
3. If necessary, use a mild detergent to remove
grease marks.
Note: Do NOT use solvents or detergents on the
screen itself.
Note: In certain conditions, condensation may
appear inside the display screen. This will not
harm the unit, and can be cleared by powering on
the display for a short time.
Maintenance
97
13.5 Cleaning the sun cover
The supplied sun cover features an adhesive surface.
In certain conditions unwanted contaminants may
stick to this surface. To avoid damaging the monitor
display, clean the sun cover regularly following this
procedure:
1. Carefully remove the sun cover from the display.
2. Rinse the sun cover with fresh water to remove
all dirt particles and salt deposits.
3. Allow the sun cover to dry naturally.

14.1 Troubleshooting
The troubleshooting information provides possible
causes and corrective action required for common
problems associated with marine electronics
installations.
All Raymarine products are, prior to packing and
shipping, subjected to comprehensive test and
quality assurance programs. However, if you
experience problems with the operation of your
product this section will help you to diagnose
and correct problems in order to restore normal
operation.
If after referring to this section you are still having
problems with your unit, please contact Raymarine
Technical Support for further advice.
100
p70 / p70R
14.2 Power up troubleshooting
Problems at power up and their possible causes and solutions are described here.
Product does not turn on or keeps turning off
Possible causes
Possible solutions
Blown fuse / tripped breaker
1.
Check condition of relevant fuses and breakers and connections, replace
if necessary (Refer to the Technical Specification section of your product’s
installation instructions for fuse ratings.)
2.
If fuse keeps blowing check for cable damage, broken connector pins or
incorrect wiring.
1.
Check that the power cable connector is fully inserted into the unit and locked in
position.
2.
Check the power supply cable and connectors for signs of damage or corrosion,
replace if necessary.
3.
With the unit turned on, try flexing the power cable near to the display connector
to see if this causes the unit to re-boot/loose power, replace if necessary.
4.
Check the vessel’s battery voltage, the condition of the battery terminals and
power supply cables, ensuring connections are secure, clean and free from
corrosion, replace if necessary.
5.
With the product under load, using a multi-meter, check for high voltage drop
across all connectors/fuses etc, replace if necessary.
Poor / damaged / insecure power supply
cable / connections
Incorrect power connection
The power supply may be wired incorrectly, ensure the installation instructions have
been followed.
Power source insufficient
With the product under load, using a multi-meter, check the power supply voltage as
close to the unit as possible to establish actual voltage when the current is flowing.
(Refer to the Technical Specification section of your product’s installation instructions
for power supply requirements.)
Product will not boot up (re-boot loop)
Possible causes
Possible solutions
Power supply and connection
See possible solutions from ‘Products does not turn on or keeps turning off’ above.
Software corruption
1.
In the unlikely event that the products software has become corrupted please
try re-flashing the latest software from the Raymarine website.
2.
On display products, as a last resort, you can try to perform a ‘Power on Reset’,
however this will delete all settings/presets and user data (such as waypoints
and tracks) and revert the unit back to factory defaults.
