The Simrad AP24 Autopilot system, is designed with space saving in mind. The compact control unit is ideal for use when mounting space is limited, but with an easily read display there is no compromise on functionality. The unit also has many of the same features as the larger AP28 and can be used in conjunction with the AP28 as a second station or on its own. The AP24 can also be fully integrated into the Simrad NSS, NSE and NSO range of Multifunction Displays.
When fishing or looking for a wreck, you might choose from a variety of automatic steering patterns that can help you in your search.
The dodge function allows you to navigate around obstructions without disengaging your autopilot.
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.
This unique feature, recently introduced to Simrad Marine Autopilots means that no rudder feedback unit is needed for outboards and stern drive boats. In terms of installation, you will save a huge amount of time and aggravation thanks to this sophisticated new feature.
The pilot will use wind information from the IS20 system and Navigation information from the chartplotter to assist in sailing most efficiently to your destination.
Using the power of SimNet the AP24 uses the data from the echosounder to follow the line of the seabed, and stay in constant depth of water. Ideal is you are fishing or looking to dodge the tide.
