Furuno Navpilot 711C Control Unit
Kick back, relax and let NAVpilot steer you to the destination!
FURUNO's NAVpilot is a revolutionary autopilot with a sunlight viewable
display designed for a variety of vessels. It utilizes a self-learning and
adaptive software algorithm, and plays the ultimate role in course keeping
capability, dynamically adjusting essential parameters for navigation i.e.,
vessel speed, trim, draught, tide and wind effects, dead band, weather, etc.
These parameters are stored in the system memory and continuously optimized.
Perfect for inboard or outboard power boats and sail boats
Introducing “SABIKI mode” for the NAVpilot-711C
With the brand new SABIKI mode your NAVpilot-711C has just become even more
capable than before. SABIKI mode lets the autopilot take control while you
are drifting astern, so you can focus on fishing instead of steering. Moving
astern at a slow pace the SABIKI mode is uniquely tailored for sabiki
fishing, jigging and bottom fishing.
SABIKI mode is only available on vessels with
Furuno Fantum Feedback - allows for no physical rudder feedback unit for a
streamlined installation and precise course control
all-new "Fantum Feedback" NAVpilot software clears the path to a simplied
installation, while also delivering enhanced steering control. With Fantum
Feedback, NAVpilot outboard installations no longer require use of a
physical rudder feedback unit.
Fantum Feedback is a menu-selectable feature available in the latest
NAVpilot-700 series software. This new software was developed and
extensively tested on a wide variety of outboard vessels with hydraulic
steering and reversing pump control. Fantum Feedback achieves precise course
control, from slow trolling speeds to high-speed cruising, utilizing a newly
developed gain process, rather
than traditional rudder angle based control.
Simplified activation set-up by on-screen wizard
Optional revolutionary SAFE HELM and POWER ASSIST brings unrivaled
steering control and comfort at the helm*
The SAFE HELM temporarily switches the NAVpilot to manual steering for a
specied time interval, taking it out of an automatic steering mode (AUTO,
NAV, etc.) After the time interval has elapsed, SAFE HELM is deactivated and
the previous automatic steering mode is restored.
< POWER ASSIST>
The POWER ASSIST is a unique helm-activated assisted steering feature that
can augment and possibly replace separate electric and power-robbing,
engine-driven power steering systems on many vessels. POWER ASSIST reduces
steering system complexity and costs while increasing economy.
* Required Options - HRP11 or HRP17 Pump and FPS8 Power Steering
Utilizes a self-learning and adaptive software algorithm
From the rst dock-side setup through the last voyage you made, NAVpilot
continues to learn your vessel's steering characteristics. This allows
dynamic adjustments to the boat's steering for vessel speed, trim, draft,
tide and wind effects, weather, etc. These characteristics are stored in the
processor's memory where they are continuously optimized to make the
NAVpilot more versatile.
Selectable "Economy" and "Precision" Navigation Modes combine adaptive
technology providing fuel and power savings of up to 2.5% or more.**

Bright & Clear Display
display modes are available, allowing you to customize the data to suit your
own preferences with either digital or analog graphics.
The new NAVpilot-711C features a color day/night graphic display, giving you
much better sunlight viewability during the day, while not affecting your
night vision when the sun goes down.
Simple one-touch mode selection enables flexible steering and course
new NAVpilot series is designed to match the NavNet TZtouch, NavNet 3D,
FI-50 Instrument series and other navigation equipment. The “Plug and Play”
CAN bus interface allows for easy installation and exceptional interface
ability. The diagrams below show typical installations for power and sail
Defferent mode variations
The NAVpilot will activate the FishHunter to perform square, zigzag, circle,
orbit, spiral or gure eight maneuvers around the specied target at a user
selected distance. This feature can also be used for Man Overboard (MOB).
