Calm or Rough, the Simrad AP28 will keep you on Course.
Turn your day on the water into an even more relaxing trip with a Simrad AP24 or AP28 Marine Autopilot. These two pilots are designed for ease of use and come pre-programmed with numerous Steering functions for fishermen like Zig-Zag, Cloverleaf and Figure 8 patterns. The AP24 and AP28 can also take the depth information through NMEA from your fishfinder to maintain a given depth contour of your choice.
Simrad did not forget about the cruisers when they added features like Dodge Function, Advanced Wind Steering and No Drift Mode. The system calculates its turns based on data information from your GPS and the included Mini Gyro Compass, this eliminates the need for a rudder feedback.
The AP24 was designed with space saving in mind and incorporates all of its features into a 4.5” x 4.5” display. The AP28 is perfect for larger power and sail boats with its 6.8” x 4.5” display, dedicated function keys and a rotary course knob. Both Systems will use either the AC12 or AC42 Autopilot Computer. These are the brains of the system and which one you need depends on the hydraulic pump that you need to use. The Pump is then determined by the steering system you have and the size of the boat. Since each application is different we like to personally speak with anyone looking for a pilot to make sure we get you the correct system. Please call us at 1-800-477-2611 with any questions.
