Default Raymarine Lighthouse GPS settings

Friends,

For some reason after some basic service my GPS settings seem to be exactly 180 degrees off! Anybody ever seen this before? I am assuming it is something in settings, but I sure cannot find it. It also seems to be effecting my GPS as it seems to not reset to a neutral position.

Any help would be much appreciated!

your manual should have calibration / troubleshooting

we have no clue what unit you have because you fail to mention model

what basic service did you have? was it ever correct?

200 hour service on what? engines? generator? what was done?

highly doubt maintenance on engines/generator/trim tabs caused it

did it ever work correctly?

have you checked the manual?

Are you talking about the direction that the boat moves on the screen? Like heading up vs north up? Or maybe the boat icon is pointing the wrong direction (a compass issue)?

Do you have an autopilot on the boat? If so, the pilot compass is what is 180 degres off, not your e-series.

pretty sure raymarine autopilot & compass operate separately from e series hybrid touch MFD. i had to calibrate them to be in sync as i was seeing different degrees between my AP and MFD.

The MFD will show the pointing in the direction of any heading sensor on the system.
If there's no heading sensor, then it will use COG for direction.

And this is happening when underway or sitting in the harbor? Does it correct itself when underway?

I think if the software has been updated you need to recalibrate the autopilot
