Available for Simrad Continuum autopilot systems, it provides full access to all advanced steering features, including automated turn patterns, no-drift steering and depth-contour tracking (with a compatible sounder). Dodge keys enable instant heading changes in 1- or 10-degree increments. Automatic compass calibration is available with Simrad's Precision-9 solid-state compass to simplify setup. The AP48 control head costs $950.
