SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
WARNING
Do not open the equipment
unless you are well familiar
with electrical circuits.
Do not use the ORBIT mode in rough
sea.
Because the boat turns a 360-degree circle
around the waypoint a large wave or strong
wind can cause the boat to capsize.
ELECTRICAL Only qualified personnel
should work inside the
SHOCK
HAZARD equipment.
Do not set the course changing speed
too high.
For the figure eight mode, confirm that
no objection is in the general vicinity
of the waypoint.
The boat will be turned too sharply at the
course change, which could create a very
dangerous situation.
The distance from the waypoint to the
turning point depends on boat's speed.
Set the turn rate properly.
Do not use the autopilot in the
following situation:
Setting the too high rate may cause sudden
turn.
Harbor entrance or narrow channel
Where vessels change course often,
such as a cape or small island
CAUTION
In case of power failure turn off the
autopilot or manually steer the vessel.
Observe the following cautions when
using the autopilot:
Maintain a vigilant watch
Watch for drifting of vessel
Leaving the equipment in the AUTO or
NAV mode during power failure will cause
wear on the rudder mechanism.
In an emergency, manually steer the
vessel.
Use the correct fuse.
Use of a wrong fuse can cause fire or
damage the equipment.
The autopilot cannot avoid vessels, etc.
automatically.
WARNING LABEL
A warning label is attached to the
processor unit. Do not remove the
label. If the label is missing or damaged,
contact your dealer about replacement.
Do not use the SIMULATION mode on
the boat.
The rudder may move. This is specialpurpose mode for technicians.
WARNING
When connecting a geomagnetism
detection type heading sensor, correct
magnetic field deviation.
To avoid electrical shock, do not
remove cover. No user-serviceable
parts inside.
If an autopilot is used without the compensation, unexpected course change may occur.

PRINCIPLE OF THE AUTOPILOT
Principle of Autopilot
An autopilot is an automatic device for steering a vessel and maintaining its
heading in an intended direction. Boat and ship operators can really appreciate
the advantages of the autopilot – It steers the boat for you so that you are free to
carry out navigational checks, trim adjustments, etc. or to simply relax and enjoy
the ride.
The NAVpilot-511/520 autopilot utilizes a proportional rate system to steer the
boat. This system is similar to the highly accurate and reliable systems used on
aircraft, missiles and space vehicles. The proportional rate autopilot provides the
necessary course correction to the steering system relative to the speed and
amount that the boat moves off course.
Dead band is the area (in degrees) that an autopilot is allowed to drift before
correcting the vessel’s course. Since your NAVpilot-511/520’s advanced
processor does not utilize a dead-band, it will not drift or wander, and will steer
the boat reliably and accurately, taking action if even a minute course error
occurs.
Because wandering is eliminated, the proportional rate autopilot uses less power
and lowers wear and tear on the steering system. Course correction is smooth,
and consistent, and the boat will not jerk back and forth at any speed.
1-1
1. PRINCIPLE OF THE AUTOPILOT
Principle of Operation
In the AUTO modes, the heading information from a heading sensor is
continuously compared with the course that is set on the autopilot’s controller. (in
the NAV mode, the course to the waypoint is received from a plotter connected
to the NAVpilot-511/520). With the boat on course, these two signals are equal.
If the boat drifts off course, the difference between the primary heading and the
set course will change proportionally and there will be an imbalance at a
comparator. The comparator’s output will then move up or down depending on
whether the course error is to the left or right of the set course.
The rudder will continue to turn the vessel until a balanced condition is obtained
at the comparator, at which point the drive to the rudder stops.
The rudder position is determined by a rudder reference unit and continuously
monitored by the processor unit.

ADVANCED AUTO mode
AUTO mode will maintain a set course, but your vessel’s course may be shifted
by the effects of current or wind. ADVANCED AUTO mode maintains a set
course while compensating for the effects of wind and tide. Note that your
NAVpilot-511/520 must be connected to a (GPS) which outputs own ship’s
position data (L/L) in NMEA0183 format to the NAVpilot-511/520.
In the ADVANCED AUTO mode, the NAVpilot-511/520 will calculate your course
based on your present position and heading, and by setting a virtual “waypoint”
in its memory to navigate towards. If either tide or wind begins to push you off
course, the NAVpilot-511/520’s processor will correct your heading accordingly.
In this mode, “AUTO” appears on the display.

Selecting sailing method of NAV mode
When your vessel goes off course while navigating between the origin (previous
waypoint) and your current destination waypoint because of a remote control
command, etc. the NAV mode uses one of two methods to get back on course:
COURSE or XTE. (See figure in below.) If COURSE is selected, the
NAVpilot-511/520 will calculate a new course based on your new position after
dodging, etc. that will take you directly to your destination waypoint. If XTE is
selected, the NAVpilot-511/520 will use XTE or cross track error to steer the boat
towards your ORIGINAL course before dodging. You may select, either
COURSE or XTE as shown below.

Selecting the method of entering the parameter
The NAVpilot-511/520 has an automatic adjustment feature which sets up the equipment
according to ship’s characteristics and sea state for optimum performance in the AUTO and
NAV modes. In addition, a self-learning algorithm is incorporated: Parameters for rudder
ratio, counter rudder and auto trim gains are constantly optimized based on the steering
history of your boat, and are stored in memory for future navigation.
You choose how the NAVpilot-511/520 will steer the vessel, (manual or automatic sea state
parameter adjustment) as follows:
1. Rotate the course control knob to select “SEA STATE” from the PARAMETER SETUP
menu.
2. Press the course control knob to show the sea state options window.

MANUAL-MODERATE: Self-learning is off, using the parameters for a typical normal sea
state.
MANUAL-ROUGH:
Self-learning is off, using preset parameters for a typical rough sea
state.
For normal, everyday operation, the FULL-AUTO mode is recommended. However, if you
want the NAVpilot-511/520 to steer the boat based on experience-related parameters, but
you don’t want the pilot to be in “self-learning” mode, choose the SEMI-AUTO option.
Note that the course keeping quality may be decreased if the sea state is different from the
experience-related parameters. This option is provided if you happen to be using the pilot in
a situation that you do not anticipate encountering again.

4. MENU OPERATION
WEATHER
When the sea is rough, the boat’s heading fluctuates to port and starboard. If the rudder is
driven very often to maintain the set course, the helm mechanism may wear out. To prevent
this, the weather adjustment makes the NAVpilot-511/520 insensitive to minute course
deviations. You may choose a degree between 1° to 10°. Until the course deviation exceeds
the selected setting, steering to correct the heading will not be initiated.
The illustration below shows boat’s track lines with weather setting 3° and 7°. When 7° is
set, for example, the rudder is not driven until the course deviation exceeds 7°. Increasing
the setting reduces activation of the steering gear, however the boat tends to zigzag. When
the sea is calm, set a smaller value.

RUDDER GAIN
When the boat’s heading deviates from the set course, the NAVpilot-511/520 adjusts the
rudder to correct it. The rudder angle (number of degrees) which is steered against every
degree of course deviation is known as the rudder gain.
The following illustrations show how many degrees the NAVpilot-511/520 steers the rudder
in order to nullify 10 degrees of course deviation with various settings of the rudder gain.

COUNTER RUDDER
If the boat is heavily loaded, the heading could change excessively because of inertia. This
phenomenon causes the vessel to “overshoot” the intended course. If this happens, the
NAVpilot-511/520 will steer the rudder to the opposite side and the heading will turn in
opposite direction excessively again. In an extreme case the heading oscillates several
times until it finally settles in the new course. An adjustment known as “counter rudder”
prevents this kind of oscillation.
Counter rudder is usually not required for small boats. When your boat zigzags a lot before
settling in the new course, increase the counter rudder setting.

Adjusting the sensitivity in monitoring the boat’s trim
The NAVpilot-511/520 continually monitors the boat’s trim in order to keep the trim
sensitivity optimum. A lower setting is common because boat’s trim usually does not change
quickly. A large number changes the trim compensation value more frequently. Too high of a
setting may result in the following problems.
• Trim sensitivity is over-affected, resulting that a trim appears in both port and starboard
directions alternately.
• Trim compensation mechanism responds to the yawing, resulting in more serious
oscillation of ship’s heading.

When towing the net
When a boat is in tow of the fishing gear, its stern is “dragged” by the net. This causes the
boat to stray from its intended course. To keep the boat on course, you need to adjust the
trim manually, which can be bothersome. If you do not want to be bothered with trim
adjustments, you can enable the automatic towing function to have the trim automatically
adjusted. This feature is very valuable for trawlers and purse seiners.
