[CA11] 2006 Electronics info
We have submitted an offer to purchase on a 2006 Four Winns 378 Vista. The electronics (Chartplotter-E80, Auto pilot-ST6001, radar and VHF-Ray215 DSC) are all original factory installed equipment. I'd appreciate any information regarding the performance and use of this equipment. Will it need to be upgraded? Disadvantages/advantages of these units? I've heard things about the Smartpilot needed a gyro option. Is that accurate?

Thank you.

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Eyeman,

Documentation for these products may be found here. The latest software updates for the E-Series Classic MFD (E80) may be found here. These MFDs were designed to utilize Navionics Gold (now NAV+) and Platinum (not Platinum Plus) cartography which had been programmed onto Navionics CF memory cards. The availability of these Navionics chart cards is limited. Please click here to view a thread in which I had recently addressed this subject. Should you be able obtain a chart card and should the equipment be operational, then there shouldn't be a need to replace any of it unless seeking features not supported by the equipment or seeking accessories (ex. Sirius Satellite Weather / Radio Receiver, etc.) which are no longer available for these products. Should any to the equipment not be operational, please note that Raymarine's Product Repair Center can no longer service the products which you have listed. Should it be desired to replace the E80, then it would typically be recommended that an Axiom 9 or Axiom 9 Pro MFD be considered as a replacement for the E80 MFD. Their features may be found within each MFD's respective web page. As indicated within the FAQ found here and here, most of devices which would have been interfaced to an E-Series Classic MFD may be interfaced to or adapted for use with an Axiom or Axiom Pro MFDs.

Raymarine offered SmartPilots course computers with a gryo mounted to the circuit board (S1G/S2G/S3G) as well as autopilots without a gyro (S1/S2/S3) within the period that the vessels. Of these, the S1G/S2G/S3G offered the greatest performance and autolearn feature which learned the vessel's handling characteristics. With the exception of fluxgate compasses and rudder feedback transducers, most of the parts for the S1/S1G/S2/S2G/S3/S3G autopilots are no longer available.

Can you assist with determining whether the Autopilot is the S1G/S2G/S3G or the non-gyro unit? The vessel is still 120 miles away.

Mark,

A S1/S1G/S2/S2G/S3/S3G autopilot course computer's model name may be determined from:
- the vinyl product medallion affixed to the course computer's case
- its product ID / serial number found on the tag affixed to the back side of the autopilot course computer
- from the MFD's diagnostics: MENU->SYSTEM DIAGNOSTICS->EXTERNAL INTERFACES->SEATALK->SEATALK DEVICES
