Calibration of BSP allowing for port and starboard heel using EXP ?

My N2K based DST800 sensor is supplied by Garmin* (sob sob!) The calibration facilities work via the GNX120 displays and are primitive in the extreme. (Only suited to 20 knot plus power boats/ no-tide).

I'd like to calibrate BSP via Exp but also compensate for a significant Port-Stbd error which we cannot seem to eliminate mechanically.

Has anyone seen or used  an example of a 2d bsp calibration table with diff heel to port and stbd please?

thanks Bob Baker, J\97 Jaywalker, Solent, UK

* I have just replaced chartplotter with a B&G Zeus3, I refuse to buy Garmin MFD's because of the lousy charts compared to Navionics!

Gamin owns Navionics.

Yes, Garmin does own Navionics. Apparently it is far from trivial to make the systems work together. Nothing is likely  to happen very soon.PM if you want to discuss more.
And how can I get Exp calibrated for P vs S boat speed please. Bob

There aren't separate bsp cals in Exp, but you could probably do it in the Exp table as it has a heel/roll dependency.

The cal table is bsp across, heel down. Heel >0 on port and <0 on starboard.
