Dedicated Autopilot Control
Our steering remotes offer intuitive controls and a 1.7-inch display that can be used to make course, heading, rudder angle, or autopilot mode changes from anywhere on board. Adding a remote to your system can provide dedicated steering controls for your fully integrated autopilot system, complementing the touchscreen controls on your multifunction display. Remotes can also enable autopilot control from multiple stations: perfect for fly-bridges and other dual-helm setups.
Direct Rudder Control with Non Follow Up Steering
Your Simrad autopilot not only keeps you on course, but lets you hand-steer from any autopilot station on board. The NF80 offers Non Follow Up steering, which puts you in direct control of your boat’s rudder. Move the spring-loaded steering lever to port or starboard, and the rudder will begin to turn in the same direction. The rudder will continue to turn until the lever is released, then hold its current angle until a new angle is set.
This wired remote can be mounted almost anywhere. A simple design allows flush-mount installation using the included accessories, or external mounting to a desktop or bulkhead via an optional mounting kit. The remote connects to your Simrad autopilot system via a single NMEA 2000® cable into your existing network, offering plug-and-play installation with no complex wiring required.
