Raymarine Autopilot Hack for Broken S100 Wireless Remote
The other day, I heard a thunk on the cabin roof while cruising along in our CHB trawler. Anne had dropped her wireless autopilot remote control for our Raymarine ST6002 system. She then informed me that it had stopped working and displayed NO PILOT on the screen.
I took it apart and didn't see any obvious signs of damage. But while I was messing with the circuit board, twisting it a bit, the unit came back to life. It then worked for the rest of the day's travels. However, the next time we went to use it, no such luck. Again, all it displayed was NO PILOT.
With the S100 autopilot remote out of commission, Anne had no autopilot on the flybridge where she does most of her driving. The lower helm hardwired ST6002 head unit still worked fine. In this video, I go through how I hacked the autopilot wiring to allow us to use the ST6002 head unit both on the bridge and below. I also made a suction cup magnetic mount for it out of some old rear-view camera parts I had kicking around.
