The issues he is describing sounds like software issues and the software is proprietary.....I am, as we speak, in the process of trying to hack a power drive's gps to make it communicate with Garmin graphs and to build a live scope transducer mount which will point toward a coordinate much the same way as ipilot points a motor and it is tough sledding. I am pretty good at hacking things but thus far I am having my issues. That said having a ton of old school mechanical aptitude is probably not going to help with the issues he is describing....it is probably going to be a matter of replacing a circuit board which could be replicated but it would take a LONG time most likely and would cost a heap of money....
