2-6 Jog steer
When the G-PILOT 3100 is in STBY (standby, see section 2-5) the helmsman must steer the boat
manually. However the G-Pilot 3100 can turn the rudder; this is called jog steering:
hold down < to turn the rudder to port
hold down > to turn the rudder to starboard
press and release < and > together to turn the rudder to amidships (this function is disabled
until the rudder feedback unit and the compass have been calibrated (see the G- PILOT
3100 Installation Manual)).
For example:
Rudder is amidships Boat keeps turning to port
Hold <, the rudder
turns to port and the
boat turns to port
Release <, the rudder
stays to port
Rudder is to port Boat keeps turning to port
Hold >, the rudder
turns to starboard
Release >, the rudder
stops, but is still to port
Rudder is to port Boat goes straightPress and release
< + > together
the rudder turns to
amidships.
To stop the rudder turn-
ing to amidships press
ESC, < or >
Warning Until the rudder feedback unit is calibrated, there is no rudder limit and the user must
ensure that the rudder is not driven onto an endstop when using jog steering.
Note Normally during a jog the info data (see section 3-4) displays JOG. However, if CUR
(drive current) is selected then this current is displayed during a jog as an aid for testing the
steering drive.
