1001 Autopilot with Magnetic CompassAdvanced Technology for Accurate Steering Simple to Operate
The 1001 Autopilot from ComNav is designed to work on a wide variety of boats, from small pleasure craft to massive workboats. For vessels that already have a first-rate, well compensated ship's compass, this version comes with a magnetic sensor that attaches to your compass and feeds heading information to the pilot, thereby eliminating the expense of installing and compensating a fluxgate compass.
The 1001 Autopilot is capable of being used with most any type of steering system, and is especially useful when there is a need to retrofit to an older system. Using one of several available drive boxes (sold separately) the 1001 can be used with mechanical, hydraulic, or constant-running (solenoid) steering systems.
Since their introduction in 1982, ComNav Autopilots have gained a reputation for top performance and reliability in even the harshest sea conditions. Built-in diagnostics, self test, visual and audible alarms, plus a three year extended warranty make the 1001 one of the most reliable autopilots on the market today.
