Furuno's "Fantum Feedback" NAVpilot software clears the path to a simplified 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-300 and NAVpilot-700 series software. This 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.
