Customers asked to stop using product
Raymarine have issued a recall of their SPX5 Sport Drive Pilot.
The firm are recalling any models of the product sold between February and July 2009.

“Customers must stop using the products immediately and arrange deinstallation and return to the retailer/dealer from whom it was purchased.”
The retailer/dealer will arrange for a replacement or, if preferred, a refund, Raymarine say.
“We are sorry for any inconvenience or concern caused,” they add.
No other products are affected by the recall.
