Product Overview

Stay in control of your autopilot system, wherever you are onboard.

Incorporating long-range Bluetooth technology for up to 98'4" range in a compact and lightweight package, the WR10 wireless remote works with Simrad/B&G and Lowrance autopilot systems to enable precise heading adjustments and autopilot control.

The WR10 is compatible with Simrad AC12, AC42, and NAC-1, NAC-2 and NAC-3 autopilot systems, and makes the perfect wireless companion to Simrad's dedicated AP44 and AP48 autopilot head units, OP40 wired remote, or NSS/NSO evo2 multi-function displays.

Easy to Use

With just five buttons delivering comprehensive autopilot control, the WR10 strikes the perfect balance between a compact design and buttons large enough to be operated easily by any fingers in any conditions. 

Mode Button: Switch between full autopilot to navigate to the next waypoint on your current route, and NoDrift steering to automatically maintain your current heading (if available with your autopilot system)

Dedicated Standby and Engage Buttons: With dedicated buttons rather than a single on/off toggle, you can be sure your autopilot is engaged or switched off with a single button press – even if you don’t know what state it’s in to begin with.

Port/Starboard Dodge Buttons: Alter your heading in 1° increments with a quick press, or 10° with a longer press. The WR10’s multi-colored LED indicates when a command has been successfully received by your autopilot, and displays a low battery warning when required.

Easy to carry: A remote is only useful when it’s in your hand. Compact and lightweight, the WR10 was designed with this in mind: the included lanyard offers a range of attachment options, or the WR10 can be wrist-mounted for even quicker and easier access.

Easy to install: The WR10 offers a simple do-it-yourself upgrade to any autopilot system based on the Simrad AC12, AC42, or NAC-1 autopilot computer. The included BT1 Bluetooth base station quickly connects to your boat’s NMEA 2000 network with its plug-and-play Micro-C connector: there’s no need for any complex wiring, or an external power supply. The compact and waterproof BT1 may be either deck or pole mounted, offers up to 30m range, and can be paired with up to four WR10 remotes.
