Garmin TR-1 Gladiator Marine Autopilot Owner's manual
Thank You
Thank You for the purchase of your TR-1 Gladiator wireless remote. TR-1
wireless remote has been designed to give fishermen that competitve edge
in fishing and unparalleled precision and control of their boat. Nautamatic
Marine Systems,Inc. is dedicated to create the finest controls and guidance
systems for the best in boating and fishing.
You are responsible for the safe and prudent operation of your vessel. Your
TR-1 Gladiator autopilot and wireless remote is a tool that will enhance your
capability to operate your boat. It does not relieve you from the responsibility
for safe operation of your vessel. You must avoid hazards to navigation and
never leave the helm unattended.
You must always be prepared to promptly regain manual control of your boat.
The autopilot steering can fail and hard over.
Learn to operate your autopilot on calm and hazard free waters.
Simultaneous operation of several radio-controlled autopilots in near
proximity may cause the autopilot to fail to respond to keypad button presses.
The near boat transmitter may jam your boat’s receiver but will not control
your autopilot or render the wired remote useless.
The Wireless remote will not respond as quickly to multiple button presses as
the wired remote.
There is a remote possibility that talking on a cellphone may interfere with,
and possibly jam the radio receiver. Please use caution.
The wireless remote keypad is not waterproof. Do not expose the remote
to rain or water spray. Water in the remote will cause it to malfunction.
In the event the remote does get wet, remove the battery from the remote
immediately. If the remote is subject to salt-water incursion, remove the
battery and gently rinse the disassembled unit with clean alcohol and let
it dry out before re-assembly and reuse.

Thank you for purchasing this accessory for your TR-1 Autopilot.
Please read and understand this manual before installing and operating
this system.
The TR-1 wireless remote control is an add on system that provides
the two most often used functions of the standard TR-1 wired remote
in a compact wireless form. (Note: The wireless does not replace your
existing handheld. You will still need your wired handheld to tune your
autopilot or use the other functions of the autopilot.)
Keypad push-button functions
The buttons on the wireless keypad correspond to buttons on the wired
remote as indicated in the pictures below.

Installation Considerations
When installing the wireless remote system: 1) Mount the receiver
box and antenna away from sources of electronic interference such
as the autopilot hydraulic pump and the engines ignition systems. 2)
Mount the antenna in free space and in a direct line of sight to where
the keypad transmitter is expected to be used. Do not mount the
antenna in a corner or behind a bulkhead that may reflect or absorb
the radio signal from the remote.
Choose the locations for mounting the receiver and antenna such that
the cable lengths allow for proper connections. You may want to
temporarily mount the components with tape or tie-wraps and try out
system operation before hard mounting any parts.
1. Mount the receiver box. Use the screws provided, or use wire ties.
2. Mount the antenna using the screws provided.
3. Unplug the wired remote from the ECU wire #3, and plug in the
wire coming from the receiver box unit. See Fig.1
4. Plug the wired handheld into the second wire stub from the
receiver. See Fig.2
See Layout on
page 5.

Security Codes
Each keypad transmitter transmits its own unique identification
code when a button is pressed. The receiver computer must
be programmed to recognize your transmitter. Program the
receiver/transmitter pair by:
1) Turn the TR-1 Autopilot on.
2) Watch the LED on the receiver box, when it starts blinkingpress any button on the wireless keypad until the LED stops
You will need to do this (once) anytime you change keypads.
Replacement Remote Keypads
You may purchase replacements by calling Nautamatic Marine
Systems, Inc.
Inside the back cover of your keypad is written a 3 Character
code. This code is the security code that your receiver has been
trained to respond to. If you would like to keep this code, tell
the sales representative at the factory the code digits when you
order your new keypad. If you do not care about the code,
you will be sent a keypad with a randomly assigned code. You
can, of course, reprogram your receiver to recognize the new
keypad when you take it to your boat.
Changing Batteries
When the remote control system starts to respond erratically, the keypad remote may need battery replacement.
The wireless remote keypad is powered by a CR-2032 Button Lithium Cell Battery.
To access the battery for replacement, gently pry apart the two halves
of the keypad at the seam (fingernails will do for this) Once the unit
is open, remove the battery by sliding the battery out from beneath the
retainer. Replace with the same type of battery.
The wireless remote keypad is not waterproof. Do not expose
the remote to rain or water spray. Water in the remote will
cause it to malfunction. In the event the remote does get
wet, remove the battery from the remote immediately. If
the remote is subject to salt-water incursion, remove the
battery and gently rinse the disassembled unit with clean
alcohol and let it dry out before re-assembly and reuse.
