Comments about SPX 5R with p70R Control Head:
THE DOCUMENTATION SENT WITH THE UNIT LOOKS GREAT FROM THE SURFACE. iT IS HOWEVER MISSLEADING TO SAY THE LEAST, AND IN MY OPINION, DOWNRIGHT WRONG.
I READ AND FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS TO THE LETTER, INCLUDING THE DIAGRAMS PROVIDED. WHEN NOTHING WORKED I THEN WROTE TO RAYMARINE CUSTOMER SERVICE VIA E-MAIL. AFTER NO RESPONCE IN A WEEKS TIME I PACKAGED UP THE COURSE COMPUTER AND RETURNED IT TO THEM. tHEN THEY SENT BACK THE UNIT WITH A CORRECTED INSTALATION DIAGRAM. YES IT DOES WORK NOW. AFTER A LONG WAIT AND COUNTLESS TRYS I DO HAVE A UNIT THAT WORKS. THE DOCUMENTS THAT CAME WITH THE UNIT SAID THAT THE COURSE COMPUTER WOULD PROVIDE POWER TO THE OTHER COMPONENTS. I HAD TO PROVIDE SEPARATE POWER TO THE CONTROLLER AND THAT SIDE OF THE COURSE COMPUTER. THE WARRANTY SERVICE WAS AT LEAST QUICK TO SEND IT BACK TO ME WITH THE CORRECT LAYOUT DIAGRAM. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER TO PROVIDE THE RIGHT INFORMATION WITH THE UNIT.
