furuno nav pilot
The NavPilot 700 series autopilots feature Furuno’s new Economy and Precision modes that combine to provide fuel and power savings of up to 2.5 percent, the company says. The units also offer optional Safe Helm and Power Assist modes. The former temporarily disables the steering control when it senses the captain making manual changes with the wheel. The latter reduces steering effort on hydraulic systems. The series also comes with an upgraded FishHunter mode, which includes two new trolling patterns. Available in three display sizes, 700s cost $3,695 to $4,195 and are packaged with a NMEA2000 waterproof, rate-compensated heading sensor. Call 360-834-9300 or visit www.furunousa.com.
