NS005020 Single Engine Smartcraft Single engine Gateway: Use with M121/M84/660/567/467/657/650/557/550/550i/457/338

It won't work with anything else

This can be either Navman or Northstar cos the same

Is this a common fault?

Back to topic, all works fine now apart from speedo?!
Spoke too soon.....It's doing it again but not nearly as often. Oil level sensor is working fine though...

Take it out and shake it....quality advice - almost laughable.

The shake it advice is because the sender can get stuck - the idea is that shaking it will unstick the sensor. Try removing the assembly and moving it manually to see if the level changes on the display - that will tell you if the sensor is at fault.

Change the speed setup on the Navman to use only the GPS speed and ignore the pitot from the engine - that should help!
