The autopilot displays the current magnetic heading and will not apply any steering control.
When receiving information from a GPS unit, the autopilot can steer a vessel along a preset track to a precise latitude and longitude.
The autopilot will maintain your boat on the selected magnetic course. Course can be set via the keypad panel, changed by rotating the large knob or recalled from a stored course with the PRESET button. Where fitted, the course can also be controlled via a remote control unit.
Commercial Watch Timer:
For vessels under survey. The timer can be set to give a warning alarm at a fixed preset time and provide an output control signal for a loud external alarm 1 minute after the internal alarm sounds.
The rudder angle may be controlled by the large control knob on the main panel or from one of the remote steering stations.
A timer can be set for 1 to 120 minutes. When the time expires, an alarm sounds. Uses include timing of trawling runs or a reminder to check for anchor drag at set periods.
Note: An external alarm piezo siren must be fitted.
