Warning:Until the rudder feedback unit is calibrated (see section 4-2), there is no rudder limit. The
user must ensure that rudder is not driven onto an endstop when using the jog command (see G-PILOT

4-2 Calibrating the rudder feedback unit
This procedure matches the rudder feedback unit to the rudder.
To exit the calibration at any time, press ESC.
If you do not move the rudder as prompted or the rudder feedback unit is not working then the G-PILOT
3380 system can not finish the calibration. The G-PILOT 3380 system will display an error. Press ESC, fix
the problem and repeat the calibration.
In normal operation, the G-PILOT 3380 system will not turn the rudder closer than 3° to an endstop.
To calibrate the rudder feedback unit go to Rudder in the Setup > Calibrate menu. Follow the
on-screen instructions presented by the calibration wizard (See G-PILOT 3380 Operation Manual).
