Hydraulic Pump for Outboard Pilots
The Outboard Pilot, featuring Lowrance SmartSteer™ control from your HDS Gen3, Gen2 or Gen2 Touch, provides automatic steering for hydraulic-steer outboard motors. Steer your outboard motor to a heading, waypoint or route with control from your HDS display. Lowrance SmartSteer™ interface provides control of both your outboard motor and the MotorGuide Xi5 Pinpoint electric-steer trolling motor. “One-touch” route creation from saved trails, or repeat your path with automatic turn patterns. Recommended for single-outboard setups on boats that are 30' and less in length. VRF (Virtual Rudder Feedback) simplifies pilot installation, eliminating the need for a rudder position sensor. Easy setup—straightforward guide steps you through first-time install.
