Kick back, relax and let NAVpilot steer you to your 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.

FLSI - NAVpilot's remarkable self-learning, adaptive software is developed by collaborative works between FURUNO and FLSI.

NEWIntroducing “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 outboard engines.

With the SABIKI mode turned on, the direction can be kept just by adjusting the throttle. In order to keep the same direction it is not sufficient to just reverse the engine and move astern. The steering has to be constantly adjusted to keep direction.

NAVpilot-711C software version 1.02 and Processor unit FAP-7002 software version 1.20 required for SABIKI mode.
