New Autopilot Control Provides Total Freedom From the Helm

Lowrance® announced today the release of the compact Wireless Pilot Controller. Providing complete control to anglers, no matter where they are on the boat, the new Wireless Pilot Controller is comprised of a small and lightweight waterproof Bluetooth base station with micro-C connections, pairs with up to four remotes, and is compatible with Lowrance Outboard Pilot systems.

The Pilot Controller Wireless Remote is perfectly sized to fit into the user’s palm. The unit has a series of clearly marked keys and an LED status light to allow for fast and accurate autopilot access. A mode button allows anglers to toggle through the available pilot modes, while two dodge keys enable the user to program turns by 1- or 10-degree increments. There is also a Pilot Standby button for the ultimate in safety and a large Auto key. Easy to install, the remote has a range of up to 30 metres.

The Wireless Pilot Controller remote comes with a handy lanyard or optional wrist strap, for instant device access, while the base station can be mounted on deck or with a pole mount.

The Wireless Pilot Controller and Bluetooth base station will be available Q2 2015 and priced at $450 AUD/$609 NZD.
