The AP2403 VRF Autopilot Package is a complete auto-steering solution, designed for boats with outboard engines up to 45ft in length. The pack includes the space saving and feature-loaded AP24 autopilot controller, which includes its impressive integrated virtual rudder feedback feature, the AC12 autopilot computer (depending upon the size of your vessel), the highly intelligent RC42 Rate Compass and the RPU80 reversible hydraulic pump for vessels with hydraulic steering systems.
Everything you need in one box to fit an autopilot to your hydraulic-steer outboard motor, the DrivePilot™ lets you focus on any activity while keeping the boat on course. When connected to a NSS evo2 or NSO evo2 multifunction display (DrivePilot™ requires the latest NSS/NSO evo2 software), it can steer to a waypoint or along a route, select a turn pattern or simply hold a constant heading. The Simrad DrivePilot™ Hydraulic-Steer Pack is supplied with a RC42 rate compass which is often used in much larger commercial vessels.
Steer your vessel to a heading, waypoint, route or cursor, with control from your NSS evo2 or NSO evo2 display.
Repeat your path with automatic turn patterns.
Recommended for outboard and sterndrive steering systems, on boats that are 30 feet and less, in length.
