The TP22 TillerPilot fits a wide variety of tiller-steered sailboats up to 39' overall length.

Combining highly sophisticated electronics with advanced software and a powerful mechanical drive, it supplies reliable and accurate steering performance under a variety of conditions with minimal current consumption.

The TillerPilots are simple to operate, using only five keys to access all functions, yet they represent the state-of-the-art in marine autopilots with many advanced features. Sophisticated functions of the TP22 include Steer To Wind mode and Nav mode (Steer To GPS) using external equipment linked directly to the TillerPilot via the SimNet high speed bus, or through the built-in NMEA 0183 interface.
