For details of the NMEA Spur cable connections, refer to Diagram D Each time power is applied to an S1000 Autopilot connected to a Raymarine GPS (via NMEA or SeaTalk), the S1000 will set the GPS filtering to WEAK. If you want to connect to an external SeaTalk system, ensure each of these SeaTalk wires connects to the wire of the same color in the external system.
(see Diagram C) S1000 Autopilot Installation Guide Using with Raymarine GPS If a Raymarine GPS (such as the Raystar 120 or 125) is to be connected to the S1000 Autopilot via NMEA, NMEA in out, +ve correctly connected.

If the steering feels uneven and/or less responsive than it was before you installed your S1000 Autopilot, you may need to bleed the entire steering system. To do this, use the purge procedure at the following web address: http://www.seastarsteering.com/OUTBOARD/oboard.htm?../FILL_PURGE/FillPurge.htm&1...
Autolearn procedure 3. Carry out the Checking direction of turn - sheet 1 Before casting off, check that the S1000 operates the boat's steering system in the correct direction: At the S100 Remote, hold down STANDBY for 2 seconds, to enter Setup mode.
If the outboard motor(s) does/do not move correctly, DO NOT USE THE BOAT. At the S100 Remote, hold down STANDBY for 2 seconds to leave Setup mode and return to Standby mode, then check that the S1000 components have been installed correctly. In particular, check that the autopilot pump wiring and hydraulics are connected correctly.
Autolearn procedure - sheet 2 To regain control of the boat at any time during Autolearn, Before you use the S1000 Autopilot, run the inbuilt Autolearn facility to set up the autopilot for your boat: If the system is not already in Setup mode, at the S100 Remote, hold down STANDBY for 2 seconds, to enter Setup mode.
