I Bought a Raymarine AIS 650 tranceiver last year and Defender(I now discover had made an error with the number. They have entered a 5 instead of a 6!

My MMSI number is issued by the UK OFCOM and the vessel is UK registered. I should be able to reprogram the soft wear as a non US vessel but the option is greyed out on the supplied software. Any suggestions?

As you have identified FCC regulations prohibit US customers from resetting the MMSI number once it has been programmed.  Within the US, only FCC certified radio technicians and dealers are permitted to reset MMSI numbers within VHF radios and AIS transceivers.  Should the vessel be registered within the UK as you have specified, then it is recommended that our UK offices be contacted for the application to reset the AIS650's MMSI:

Vector Lines

When I am heading to a target with the vector line set on infinite, the line does not continue as I scroll toward the destination. If the destination is off the current scale chart the line disappears as the chart scrolls forward. it would be helpful if the vector line appeared scrolling forward so I could see where the line reaches the target.See More

P70 Rudder angle indicator not at zero when reference unit markings are aligned

Should the rudder angle shown on the p70 be zero when the marks on the top/bottom of the rudder reference transducer are aligned? Is there a way to calibrate this in the p70 menus?
