Do you have confidence
in your autopilot?
Simrad engineering ensures that you can always go to sea in
the confidence that your Autopilot is pin-point accurate and
highly reliable. The AP24 boasts state of the art technology so
you know you’ll be safe, you know you’ll hit your waypoints and
you know that you’ll arrive on time. But what about en-route?
What can the AP24 do for you?
Contour Steering
This unique Simrad feature utilizes data from your fishfinder or depth
instrument to maintain a set water depth, just as if you were manually
steering your boat along depth contours on a paper chart. This leaves
you free to concentrate on the big catch, enjoy the shoreline view
or trim your sail.
New AP24 Autopilot
Advanced Wind Steering
The AWS feature provides unbeatable
autopilot performance for any sailing
vessel. AWS is ideal for single-handed
sailing or racing. Utilizing wind and
GPS data simultaneously, it is possible
to hit long distance waypoints dead-on,
without deviating from the original course line or build-up of significant
cross track error.
Rate Of Turn Control
The AP24 is equipped with advanced control algorithms that enable
smooth and precise turns regardless of sea conditions. This feature
also improves tack and gybe performance on sailboats.
Data Pages
The AP24 includes a number of data pages where you can view
autopilot parameters such as compass heading, set course, rudder
position, as well as information received from other SimNet
compatible equipment such as GPS navigation data and IS20 wind,
depth and speed data.
Multi-Station Operation
Expanded multi-station compatibility offers several control options
including use of the AP28 control unit. Any future autopilot control
units will also work thanks to the SimNet system.
Control Options
