    Default 511/OB Navpilot

    Product Manufacturer: Furuno
    The NavPilotTM 511/OB is a revolutionary autopilot designed for use with outboard motors. The operation modes include Auto (Heading control), Advanced Auto utilizing automatic ground tracking control, Auto Work for net towing and NAV mode (Course or Precision Cross Track control) when integrated with navigation sensors.
    The NavPilotTM 511/OB utilizes a self-learning and adaptive software algorithm, providing the ultimate in course keeping capability. Essential parameters dynamically adjust for vessel speed, trim, draught, tide and wind effects, dead band, weather, etc. These parameters are stored in system memory and continuously optimized.

    Simple one-touch mode selection provides reliable steering and course control. Multiple customizable display modes include Rudder angle, Heading, Highway, Compass rose, Wind, Nav Info, etc.

    FishHunterTM is a unique feature that forces a vessel to perform Orbit or Figure Eight maneuvers around fish targets when a target is received from a compatible Furuno sounder, sonar, or radar utilizing the TLL feature. Orbit mode is also invoked when a MOB is received from a Nav Receiver.

    Multi-station capability, maximum of six stations, is available through the utilization of a high speed network.

    Price Paid: 2585
    Recommended: yes
    Cons: None
    Pros: Ease of use and network integration
    I purchased a complete Furuno networked system for my Triumph 215 Chaos. The Navpilot was an extravagant addition to the Radar, GPS, FishFinder and VHF package, but the option of fishing alone on occassion and being able to work and set lines while the Navpilot holds a course or orbits around a wreck or bottom structure, was just too tempting to resist. The $2585 price included the 511/OB (out board) Navpilot and the HRP10-12 Pump assembly. I also purchased the Furuno PG500R Heading Sensor for the system at an additional cost of $589.00.

    I've only used it once so far but I am very pleased with the result and couldn't be happier with the package. Furuno gear is not cheap but the quality is well known.
