Perfect for small sailboats with mechanical steering systems, the p70 SmartPilot X-10 Linear Drive autopilot system is the perfect all-in-one-box autopilot solution.
Raymarine’s new p70 Autopilot Controller keeps you in command of your SmartPilot autopilot system no matter whether you are cruising, fishing or sailing! Built on Raymarine’s new ultra-sleek platform, the p70 autopilot controller offer boaters an attractive, high-visibility, and simple to operate interface to their Raymarine SmartPilot X-Series autopilot systems.
The p70 offers pushbutton controls and support for multiple autopilot modes including Auto, standby, trolling patterns, and track mode from your GPS or chartplotter. p70 features standard SeaTalkng connectivity for simple interfacing with Raymarine SmartPilot X-Series autopilot corepacks.
The p70 features a 3.5” sunlight viewable Liquid Crystal Display. LED backlighting delivers superior visibility day or night and ultra-low power consumption. p70 also supports group dimming along with i70 Instruments and e7 multifunction displays. p70’s LightHouse user interface delivers simple setup, calibration and operation. The intuitive layout makes accessing all of the p70’s features easy.
Engineered for boats with 12 or 24 Volt DC electrical systems, the SmartPilot X-10 corepack is the “brains” of your Raymarine modular pilot system. The SmartPilot X-10 corepack features an integrated rate-gyro processor as standard equipment. The rate gyro, combined with Raymarine’s exclusive AST (Advanced Steering Technology) software algorithms ensure razor-sharp course keeping under any sea conditions. The SmartPilot X-10 also offers the convenience of rudder reference-less operation as well as data connections for SeaTalk, SeaTalkng, NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 giving the SmartPilot X-10 unprecedented connectivity.
Using SeaTalkng networking, connect your SmartPilot X-10 to the ST70 Color Autopilot Controller and Raymarine instruments. Convenient Auto-tack and dodge features make this system the ideal crewmember for short-handed sailing.
Finally, the muscle of this system is our Type 1 Linear Drive system. Designed for mechanically steered vessels up to 24,000 lbs. displacement (11,000 kg) the linear drive unit provides smooth, reliable course keeping under almost any conditions.
