I have a Motorguide Xi5 105lb/36V with pinpoint gps and gateway connected via NMEA 2000 network to a Lowrance Elite 12ti (latest software update installed prior to this last trip). When I tried to utilize the anchor function the Xi5 would spin clockwise to the point of nearly breaking the wiring if I didn’t stop the anchor function. Had it out earlier in the week and worked perfectly holding me on same brush pile for more than 2 hours but today attempted to anchor 7-8 times at various portions of the lake with same result. Any ideas what to try to fix it? I did reset gps calibration to factory setting (M+1+1+4) with no effect.

Thanks,
David

I was not, we were fishing Lake Somerville this morning. Seems like this might not be an isolated problem with the Xi5’s?

I had two guys call me this weekend both on Lewisville at the Dam having the same issue. I had another guy on Grapevine having the same issue every time a big old jet airliner flew overhead. I was just trying to put apples to apples and say it was a satellite issue or some kind of interference... I have seen it before with the Xi5.
