Simple Operation from a Single Small Display
The Simrad AP24 is an autopilot control unit that features a large 4.5” ultra-clear transflective matrix LCD display. The AP24 features a compact design making it ideal for boats with limited mounting space and an excellent choice for all types of leisure crafts. The unit’s large, bright and highly visible numeric data make it easy to read, even from a distance. The AP24 connects via NMEA 0183 or NMEA 2000 to the Simrad AC12 or AC42 Autopilot computer allowing you to share heading data with other devices. For ease of use the AP24 provides the user with an easy to understand intuitive menu alleviating the need for extensive manual reading.
With the AP24 you can access and control system features such as an Integrated Turn Pattern Mode that assists you with fishing, diving, or recovering a lost fender. To counteract the effects of wind and tide the No Drift Mode ensures your vessel stays on track while the Constant Depth Tracking Data feature makes sure you remain in a constant depth of water. Easy and precise turns are not a problem in rough sea conditions with the Rate of Control Feature. You can even navigate around obstructions without ever disengaging the autopilot by utilizing the Dodge Function. In addition view vital instrument data easily on the autopilot controller via the SimNet network with the Data Pages View feature.
The Simrad AP24 matches perfectly with IS20 instruments for an aesthetically pleasing result. With all these great features, you can count on the AP24 to steer you in the right direction
