SmartSteer™ control from your HDS Gen2 or HDS Gen3 display—will steer to a heading, waypoint or route.
Everything you need in one box to fit an autopilot to your outboard motor, the Outboard Pilot lets you focus on fishing activity while keeping the boat on course. Choose either the hydraulic- or cable-steer pack. When connected to a Lowrance HDS Gen2 or Gen3, the Outboard Pilot can steer to a waypoint or along a route, select a turn pattern or simply hold a constant heading.
The Lowrance SmartSteer™ user interface allows you to easily switch between electric-steer, trolling-motor control and outboard motor control directly from your HDS display. And, with your HDS display, you can easily convert trails to routes—so you can retrace a previous track and get your boat back to the dock from your fishing area.
