The FURUNO NAVpilot 700 Series 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.
The optional SAFE HELM and POWER ASSIST features provide a unique interface to the vessel’s hydraulic hand steering system, providing unrivaled comfort and control of the vessel’s steering directly from any manual helm on the vessel. These two modes greatly reduce steering effort and enhance the safety of your vessel’s autopilot. 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.
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.
Furuno’s 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.
