Simrad Launch Entry-level Autopilot

Press Release
Tuesday, June 04, 2013

Simrad Yachting introduce its AP60 entry level commerical autopilot complementing their  AP 70 amd AP 80 range.

Unlike many other entry-level commercial autopilots, the Simrad AP60 includes thruster integration for improved low speed maneuvering, the manufacturer said, adding, the AP60 is incredibly easy to use giving boaters clear and intuitive menu systems; a large, high contrast monochrome LCD screen for clear display of critical information; a rotary course control wheel; Auto and Standby buttons; and dedicated work modes.

The Simrad AP60 has a range of features designed to make piloting commercial vessels more efficient. Two user configurable profiles, WORK and NORMAL, allow custom parameters for specific vessel operations such as trawling or towing. Switching from NORMAL to WORK profiles is performed with the press of a button. The AP60 includes NoDrift steering, thruster integration and turn patterns such as U-Turn and S-Turn — features not found on other comparable Autopilots.

The company says its Simrad AP60 autopilot is equally suited for use in isolation, as part of a multi-station system, or alongside a wide range of control units including the QS80 QuickStick remote with integrated joystick and the NF80 Non Follow-Up Remote with rotary lever.
