Furuno Releases New Autopilot

 Furuno NavPilot 700 Autopilot series

Several years ago, Furuno introduced their NavPilot 500 Autopilot series, which brought an advanced, self-learning and adaptive Autopilot to market. That Autopilot enjoyed years of success and now Furuno is following it up with the all-new NavPilot 700 series, which includes a host of new, groundbreaking and extremely beneficial features.   On the surface, the NavPilot 700 series flaunts a refreshed look, providing it a family look with Furuno’s popular NavNet 3D, GP33, RD33 and FI50 instruments. However, it’s “under the hood” where the NavPilot 700 series really excels! First is the “Safe Helm” and “Power Assist” modes. “Safe Helm” temporarily disables the NavPilot steering control when manual operator helm changes are sensed. “Safe Helm” is a critical safety feature designed for emergency maneuvering or dodging obstacles. The original course is restored automatically or manually after the maneuver is completed. “Power Assist” mode significantly reduces steering effort, similar to power steering on a car. These revolutionary new modes enhance the safety of the Autopilot and provide a unique interface to the vessel’s hydraulic hand steering system, delivering unrivaled comfort and steering control from any manual helm on the vessel. The optional FPS8 Power Steering Module and appropriate software are required to activate the Safe Helm feature.  


Furuno Introduces New High Power NAVNET Pair

Furuno added to its NavNet series of Radar/Chart Plotters, the 1953C & 1953C/NT. Designed for all types of vessels, the 1953C series bundles high-power X-band radar performance with NavNet technology. Built to commercial-grade standards, the 1953C is a 12kW Radar with a 1/8 to 72 nm range. It is available with either a four or six ft. open array antenna. This unit presents true color radar images on a high-resolution 10.4-in. color LCD, housed in a waterproof case.
