Re: Help to set up a Skookum GPS

Hi. Sorry I'm not closer but I have set one up and it can prove a bit troublesome until you try it a few times. The trick for me was to keep the motion of the chassis very smooth when doing the forward calibration. The measurement is very important and so is keeping the amount of carbon steel to a minimum near the gyro. If you are installing it on a boom mount, see if you can find stainless steel hardware to replace the regular hardware. Find a spot away from any large concentration of metal (like a car or steel telephone pole) and if you have a laptop with you, it will make things so much easier to reset it if it does not take. I have a small notebook that I take with me for any adjustments of my gyros. Be patient, it will calibrate. Take care.
