Steer By Wire for Seastar Optimus 360
The NavPilot 300-OPT is a complete NavPilot 300 system with all of the
necessary components, cables and gateways to connect to a SeaStar Optimus 360
Joystick system (not included).
NavPilot 300 is not your ordinary Autopilot
The NavPilot 300 is a revolutionary autopilot. With Fantum Feedback, NavPilot
outboard installations no longer require use of a physical rudder feedback unit.
This results in a streamlined, simplified installation. Combined with Furuno's
unique adaptive learning technology, NavPilot 300 provides unmatched outboard
Autopilot performance. Fantum Feedback is designed for planing and
semi-displacement outboard vessels from 24 to 50 feet, with one to four outboard
engines, where it achieves precise course control from slow trolling to speeds
of well over 60 knots.
(Note: A Furuno PG700, SC33 or other compatible NMEA2000 vessel heading
source is required.)
Gesture Control - just push, point and shoot!
The Gesture Controller is a revolutionary and unique way to steer your
boat remotely. By using Bluetooth signals, it is possible to control the
Autopilot from anywhere on the boat within 10 meters. Just push, hold the
button, point to the desired heading and release to let the Autopilot
redirect the boat!
Versatile Display Modes on a vivid 4.1" Color LCD Display
The SABIKI™ mode lets the autopilot control while you are drifting astern, so
you can focus on fishing instead of steering. Maintaining heading astern while
compensating for wind and tide, SABIKI™ mode is uniquely tailored for Sabiki
fishing, jigging and bottom fishing.
Other display modes include Furuno's
Highway mode, Auto and Advanced Auto modes, and Fish Hunter mode, where one of
four pre-programmed maneuvers can be performed around a specified target at a
user selected distance. These include Zig-Zag, Orbit, Figure 8, or a Spiral
maneuver. The Fish Hunter feature can also be used for Man Overboard (MOB).
Integrate your helm with NavPilot's FishHunter mode
FishHunter mode is a unique feature of FURUNO’s NavPilot series. Find a
fish target with your FURUNO sonar/sounder or bird target with your FURUNO
radar and feed it to the NavPilot The NavPilot will activate the FishHunter
mode to perform square, zigzag, circle, orbit, spiral or figure-eight
maneuvers around the specified target at a user selected distance. This
feature can also be used for Man Overboard (MOB).
*RRU (Rudder Reference Unit)
required to enable Fish Hunter mode on NavPiot 711C/OB models
Furuno Fantum Feedback
With Fantum Feedback, NAVpilot outboard/sterndrive installations no longer
require use of a physical rudder feedback unit. NAVpilot software clears the
path to a simplified installation, while also delivering enhanced steering
