Product Description

Automatic Tuning
Simrad AP28 Marine Autopilot include a number of self calibrating features that automatically compensate for the unique handling characteristics of your boat and sea conditions, insuring optimum performance without the need for expert manual calibration.

Simrad engineering ensures that you can always go to sea in the confidence that your Autopilot is pin-point accurate and highly reliable. The Simrad AP28 Autopilot boasts state of the art technology so you know you'll be safe, you know you'll hit your way points and you know that you'll arrive on time. But what about en-route? What can the Simrad AP28 Marine Autopilot do for you?

Contour Steering
This unique Simrad feature utilizes data from your fishfinder or depth instrument to maintain a set water depth, just as if you were manually steering your boat along depth contours on a paper chart. This leaves you free to concentrate on the big catch, enjoy the shoreline view or trim your sail.

Integrated Turn Patterns
When fishing or looking for a wreck, you might choose from a variety of automatic steering patterns that can help you in your search.

Dodge Function
The dodge function allows you to navigate around obstructions without disengaging your autopilot.

No Drift Mode
Combining the power of the autopilot and the GPS on the SimNet allows you to operate in no drift mode; it counteracts the effects of wind and tide to ensure your track is straight and true.
Advanced Wind Steering
The AWS feature provides unbeatable autopilot performance for any sailing vessel. AWS is ideal for single-handed sailing or racing. Utilizing wind and GPS data simultaneously, it is possible to hit long distance waypoints dead-on, without deviating from the original course line or build-up of significant cross track error.

Rate Of Turn Control
Simrad AP28 Autopilot is equipped with advanced control algorithms that enable smooth and precise turns regardless of sea conditions. This feature also improves tack and gybe performance on sailboats.

Data Pages
Simrad AP28 Autopilot includes a number of data pages where you can view autopilot parameters such as compass heading, set course, rudder position, as well as information received from other SimNet compatible equipment such as GPS navigation data and Simrad IS20 Instruments wind, depth and speed data.

Multi-Station Operation
Expanded multi-station compatibility offers several control options including use of Simrad AP28 Marine Autopilot control unit. Any future autopilot control units will also work thanks to the SimNet system.
