    FWIW, both my Magellan 5200DX and Tracker came right up this morning.
    In fact, if anything, it seems the 5200DX was faster than usual but
    that's purely a subjective opinion.  We used the 5200DX to provide
    steering data to the autopilot over a 15 nm course and, aside from the
    autopilot's less than stellar handling of a .6kt knot southerly
    current on a course of 100 deg (steering corrections to return the the
    rhumb line were on the order of 30 deg.), nothing remarkable happened.
    This was on board One With The Wind, going from Holland Point on the
    north end of Gibson Island, roughly 10 miles north of Annapolis, MD,
    to Kent Narrows via Love Point.
