The A2004 builds upon the proven user interface and keypad layout of the Simrad AP70 and AP80 professional autopilot controllers, and delivers consistency with the latest generation of Simrad radar, sonar, and ECDIS displays. A large aluminium rotary control dial enables quick but precise steering adjustments, while dedicated keys offer instant access to steering modes, a custom-configurable Work mode, and automated turn patterns. All built-in controls are designed for ease of use with wet or gloved hands, in commercial settings such as fishing vessels and workboats.
No Drift mode integrates GPS navigation with auto-steering, using position data to counteract the effects of wind and tide. This allows the A2004 to maintain a straight track over ground on the current heading, without the need to manually set a waypoint or route. No Drift steering is available with an NMEA 2000® connected GPS receiver or compatible Simrad chartplotter.
To ensure optimal visibility in all conditions, the A2004’s colour LCD panel is optically bonded to its protective glass covering – eliminating the possibility of internal condensation. Transflective LCD technology makes use of reflected sunlight to brighten rather than obscure the screen, delivering superior day-time visibility and lower power consumption compared to traditional backlit displays. An ultra-wide 170 degree viewing angle means key autopilot information is clearly visible at a glance, from anywhere in sight of the display.
The all-in-one, maintenance free, HS70 antenna is an ideal companion to chartplotters, autopilots, radars and AIS systems.
Note: this Autopilot pack excludes a drive unit. A drive unit is an essential Autopilot component. If you do not have an existing drive unit then please view our selection here.
Note: A 4.55m NMEA2000 Network Cable is included to interface the HS70 to the NMEA2000 backbone. Alternatively, for NMEA0183 connection please add the NMEA0183 power/data cable 000-10640-001.
