Default KVH AutoComp 1000 Damping Averaging Period

I am installing my new KVH AutoComp 1000 this afternoon. Seems straight forward except for setting the Damping Averaging Period.

I have 4 options (set by grounding various leads):

Level 1 4.5 seconds
Level 2 6 seconds
Level 3 9 seconds
Level 4 14 seconds

Level 1 seems like the best choice for a powerboat. Am I missing something?

I didn't ground either wire which appears to be an error. I will be grounding both wires to give Level 1. Thanks

I went with Level 1. Works good at the dock

Hope to try out on the water tomorrow and do the autocompensation routine.

the autocomp routine is about the easiest procedure I've ever encountered - you make one circle...done...and I'm also noting this day in my files as the day Elusive made an electrical mistake...

It was an, uh, oversight - aw geez, I'll never live it down

$50 says Glen is out at his boat right now checking to see if he grounded the wires
