With 6 individual scenario profiles, networking with NMEA2000 cabling, a special work mode, and triple support of independent rudders and multiple thrusters, the Simrad AP80 is a one stop shop for vessels from 20 feet to supertankers. The AP80 offers one of the smartest autopilot solutions on the market today. It will adapt to your individual load characteristics, and wind and wave conditions, to help lower operating costs and reduce risk. The USB plug in the front makes loading and storing these settings so simple. Like the AP70, the slightly larger AP80 is totally modular in nature, so installation and operation are effortless.
