The AP80 is one of the smartest type approved autopilot solutions
available 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 port 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. Both the AP70 and AP80
control units share common autopilot computers and accessories
making them the most flexible autopilot systems available.
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 super tankers.



  • 5 inch colour bonded display
  • Adaptive, self-learning software
  • Total of 6 user modes available
  • Unique WORK mode: customize the parameters to suit individual vessel needs

The AP70 is a type approved autopilot system providing complete
heading and course control for a wide range of vessels. It can be used
as a standalone autopilot control unit, or is perfect as a second station
in an AP80 system.
With its unique colour user interface and intuitive graphics, ability to
store up to 6 individual scenario profiles, and self-learning software,
this modular system makes installation and operation so easy.
You won’t find another pilot on the market that boasts the same
performance, durability and versatility without the high cost.
