Marine Autopilot Computers

Marine Autopilot Computers

A marine autopilot computer is the brains of your Simrad autopilot system. It continuously monitors data from heading sensors, rudder feedback units and other on-board instruments, and steers to your chosen heading or course. An autopilot computer also includes the electronics required to operate your drive unit – depending on the size of your boat and drive unit required, you’ll either need a standard or high-current computer.
