I've had that happen several times until I figured out what was wrong. If you're engaging it to "track", in other words, to steer to a waypoint, you need to engage "track" immediately after setting your chartplotter to "navigate to". If you set the chartplotter to "navigate to" a waypoint, then later tell the autopilot to "track" to that waypoint, it will immediately head for the previously plotted track, then once it reaches the previously plotted track, it will steer to the selected waypoint. Very disconcerting when you don't know what it's doing.

Ok.

I've been cruising for a 1.5 weeks and the autopilot has performed better than 
ever before. Until today. It rained heavily last night, and the head-end is 
mounted next to the helm. I've only ever engaged it using the fluxgate compass. 
Today, as soon as I pressed Auto, the motor turned the wheel to port without 
stopping. I've tried it several times over the past two hours and same thing. 
Powered off and on, no difference. Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Mike

OK, I can admit I was wrong.
Trump was obviously elected by an overwhelming majority
and has shown superb leadership skills with his ability to
unite the people of the country behind common goals, and
to galvanize his party into an effective legislative force
for pursuing his agenda.  He's also losing weight and his huge
hands are getting even bigger.
