The AP16 also utilizes SimNet; Simrad's new, highly advanced, single cable electronic interconnection and for advanced data sharing and control system. The AP16 autopilot features a large, easy to read LCD matrix display and a new dedicated keypad layout that enables simple and intuitive operation. The screen features several display modes including Nav, Auto, and Wind; all of which show the most important information in the optimum view. The AP16 automatically adapts to your boats steering characteristics, including proportional rate rudder control, compass calibration and sea state adjustments. In navigation mode it keeps your boat on a preset course and steers through a preplanned route made up of a series of waypoints programmed on your chartplotter. Autopilot systems are made up several different units, some of which are best used in either sail or power applications. Simrad offers five different permutations of the AP16 system suitable for different types of vessels using outboard engines, inboard engines and inboards with Z-Drive. Whether applied to a power or sail boat, the AP16 is an excellent choice for any vessel between 25 to 40 feet.Measures: 4.3"H x 4.3"W x 1.4"D. 2 Year Warranty.
