Simrad AP60 Autopilot Base Pack - 000-11217-001


The Simrad AP60 Autopilot Base Pack includes AP60 control head, AC70 Computer and RF300 rudder sensor. The addition of a suitable drive and heading data source is all that is required to have a compitent commercial grade autopilot.

The Simrad AP60 is an entry level pilot packed wtih features often reserved for high-end autopilots. The AP60 is incredibly easy to set up and use. The intuitive menu system and large, high contrast mono screensize with clear digits make reading the display effortless. The heading control includes a rotary course control wheel, as well as dedicated WORK, AUTO and STANDBY  buttons, enabling simple performance selection depending on your task at sea.

The AP60 includes 2 user configurable WORK modes – these allow the operator to have pre-set modes of operation for the vessel. An operator could have light ship, partially loaded, fully loaded , underway, trawling or manoeuvring options pre-loaded. The AP60 also includes turn patterns such as U-Turns, C-Turns, Dodging and NoDrift steering –features you wouldn’t expect to find in an entry level pilot.

The Simrad autopilot series prides itself on flexibility and the ability to customise a solution to steer any vessel. The control unit can be used in isolation, as part of a multi-station system, or alongside a wide range of control units. The AP60 is also compatible with the most comprehensive range of Simrad autopilot controllers and accessories such as rudder feedback units, computers and interface boxes, heading sensors etc.

This unit stands out amongst the competition for its sheer versatility and the ability to meet the needs of a wide range of both leisure and commercial vessels. The latest family of Simrad autopilots is the result of over 60 years of design and production from a company recognised as a leader in auto steering and navigation.
