I have a Wheel pilot with an ST6001+ control head and have an opportunity to pick up a new X-5 course computer at a good price. Will my control head work with the X-5? Whats the difference between the ST6001+ and the ST6002+?
"fwiw my AIS worked fine after the upgrades. I have it coming in over my NMEA 0813 bus.
Another benefit is the peaceful coexistence between my Navionics iOS chartplotter and RayControl. I can easily switch between the two now.

"Welcome to the Raymarine Technical Community Petar,
Thermoclines tend to feature organics suspended in the layer which may reflect sonar energy. As such, you may achieve some success in seeing thermoclines by increasing Gain and Color Gain."
You may indeed use a single memory card to back up your waypoint/route/track data, update your display, reset the display (clears the waypoint/route/track memory within the MFD), and then retrieve your waypoint/route/track data from the memory…"
"Thank you for your prompt reply. I see your point about the heading sensor, but most of my boating is done inland where I can readily see the marker overlays from the radar on the chart and determine if it's off due to the reasons you state as…"
