Anyone know who to set the pitch and roll settings in the 2012 BIG Ballast/Trim Screen? Mine has been stuck on 16.0 Degrees STB and -16.0 Pitch.

If you go get the "2012 Instrumentation manual" from the MC Knowledge site (manual downloads) it steps you through this. Also there is a lot of great info that should have been in the boat manual.

Basically you have to make sure your boat is level (forward-aft and side to side). Then go in to setting on your GDIG. Select roll calibration, then follow instructions. this will reset your roll to 0 degrees when the boat is sitting level. Do the same for pitch. Remember your boat must be sitting level and still durinf configuration. I did it with mine, its quick and easy.

To set the pitch you have to get up to 4000rpm and go straight for at least 60 seconds. I never have got my pitch to set. Set the roll while not moving.

Are you sure about that? The instrumentation manual states that the boat should not be moving when calibration otherwise it will error out. It also recommends using a level to ensure the boat is level along both axis.

When I set my Pitch I also had to bring the boat up to 4000 rpm for a full minute, otherwise the Vdig just kept saying "calibrate". I could not find a way to calibrate the pitch while at rest. The Vdig gives these instructions to hold steady at 4000 rpm actually.

OK.. I calibrated my roll, but not pitch. I do see in the manual that it recommends the lake be calm and says to drive straight at 4000rpm. My mistake:o
