Display Modes


Standby Mode:

The autopilot displays the current magnetic heading and will not apply any steering control.

GPS Mode:

When receiving information from a GPS unit, the autopilot can steer a vessel along a preset track to a precise latitude and longitude.

Auto Mode:

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.

Power Steer:

The rudder angle may be controlled by the large control knob on the main panel or from one of the remote steering stations.

Watch Timer:

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.
