    Does anyone know of a tool sold to help re attaching "lift the dot" fittings on my dodger?

    Raymarine ST7000 auto pilot- integration with Raymarine Axiom question

    i upgraded to the Axiom recently but so far it will not allow me to link the ST7000 to the Axiom- I asked Ray about this when i first bought the Axiom and they said not its not possible, but surely they must have done an update to address this terrible shortfall? Has anyone succeeded at this?

The local marine elec had wired up the new galvanic isolator incorrectly- the difference in readings was only some 200Mv but it was enough to have my zincs buzzing! Fingers crossed it...
