Tillerpilot 1600 compass problems

I bought a Tillerpilot 1600 from Beaulieu jumble at the weekend. I have found that the compass unit inside is faulty. It functions intermittently, or by moving a bar magnet around it. When the compass unit is shaken it rattles, is this normal?

I would be very interested to hear where I might be able to get a replacement compass unit (Simrad do not stock it anymore). Failing this I would be quite happy to control it via the jack input, if able to find a device to do so cheaply!

I would be most grateful for any help.

Cheer, Ben
