Make Your Time on the Water More Enjoyable
The Raymarine Evolution Autopilot System combines advanced aerospace guidance technology with Raymarine’s marine autopilot expertise to provide a new level of autopilot control and reliability. Raymarine has over-shot the expectations for sure making the Evolution Series one of the most advance Autopilots on the market yet keeping the interface as intuitive to operate as any other.
Evolution autopilots employ what engineers at Raymarine call Evolution “AI Control” Algorithms, which enable them to “perceive their environment” to instantly calculate and “evolve” a set of steering commands maximizing performance. The result is precise and confident course tracking, regardless of vessel speed or sea conditions keeping cash in your pocket and not at the fuel dock.
Setting-up an Evolution Autopilot takes around 30 seconds because there is no calibration required. First select the boat type – large power, small power, or sail; then select the drive type – hydraulic, mechanical, or outboard; finally you’ll choose the performance level – performance, cruise, or leisure. It’s just that easy to get setup and you’re ready to hit the open water.
At the heart of the Evolution autopilot system you’ll find the ultra-compact, EV sensor core which is a 9-axis heading sensor and full function course computer all in one. The EV is about the size of a typical marine GPS sensor and can be either bracket-mounted or flush-mounted horizontally. The durable sensor is built to IPX6 and IPX7 standards; and with superior engineering put into the EV’s design it can be installed above or below decks.
A SeaTalk1 to SeaTalk NG Converter Kit (RAX22158) may be required to connect to Earlier or Retired Raymarine Equipment.
Raymarine Software version 1.21 is also a minimum requirement.
