Accurate and reliable control over your heading without years of experience at the helm



Reduce your workload and improve your situational awareness with Simrad autopilots

The current range of Simrad autopilots represents over 70 years of experience and development. With a wide range of solutions to suit any vessel type and length, you can build your system one component at a time, or start by choosing one of our autopilot core packs.

Designing your ideal autopilot system is straightforward, as the steering system on your boat determines most of your choices. After that, you can work through the drive selection process. Choice of accessories, such as remote controllers and compasses, can be made after the core components.

Introducing SteadySteer

Enjoy increased convenience without sacrificing safety with SteadySteer - a new functionality for autopilot systems that enables immediate, manual control of a vessel through turns without disengaging the autopilot. Coming out of turns, SteadySteer automatically reengages the autopilot once a new heading is established – no key-presses required.


Simrad at the Helm

Compensating for wind and tide, a Simrad autopilot frees you from constant course corrections when you're busy trawling for game fish, planning your next destination, or just cruising. Set waypoints simply by tapping where you want to go on-screen, and your autopilot will take you there.
