Got it thanks.

First make sure that the power to the NMEA 2000 network is functioning. There will be a fuse in the power supply for it. Then look all the NMEA connections. What you have happening is that the CCU and the charlplotter are losing communication with each other. If you never get the auto pilot to work. You may ned to preform the dealer set up again. That is listed in the Installation manual.
