Yes I am the dummy.
Nice site!I made a page with the most important settings and some documents I use trying to figure out the B&G systemsI have all the usual manuals and wet notes, but is there a simple to follows dummys guide for h2000 anywhere.

If anyone has more tips, please share them
Still hard to get a real picture of your problem: TWD not tacking and AWA 60deg off?sometimes it is close others as far as 60 degrees out
Oh shit, already disconnected, will try and get the dealer to do it. They are great guys, so here's hoping. Is it an easy reconnect to get the values out?It's really, really important to extract the current calibration information from the system BEFORE you disconnect and send off to service. You might check with the agent to see if they'll preserve your calibration, but I've never heard of a B&G agent willing to do this (simple) procedure. If they won't, let us know if you'll need some tips on how to extract the 20 or so values you'll need to get a head start on re-calibration.
As I've said before, the B&G system is a lot like Microsoft products - very capable but not really designed to be used. The end result is that its a royal pain in the ass to suck all this info out of the system - but once you understand the process, it's just a matter of endless button presses and jotting things down with pencil and paper. The slight up side is that in the process of sucking the info out, you'll have a good conceptual framework for plugging them back in and also understand all the corners of the system that need calibration.
As a friend who attended the US Air Force Academy once said - it's like a million dollar education - shoved up your ass a nickle at a time.
For those outside the USA, a nickle is a US 5 cent piece ... it's not a pretty picture!
