DrivePilot™ Hydraulic-Steer Pack

Everything you need in one box to fit an autopilot to your hydraulic-steer outboard motor, the DrivePilot™ lets you focus on any activity while keeping the boat on course. When connected to a NSS evo2 or NSO evo2 multifunction display (DrivePilot™ requires the latest NSS/NSO evo2 software), it can steer to a waypoint or along a route, select a turn pattern or simply hold a constant heading. The Simrad DrivePilot™ Hydraulic-Steer Pack is supplied with a RC42 rate compass which is often used in much larger commercial vessels.

Simrad GO7/NSS evo2/NSO evo2 Navigation System Integration

Designed exclusively for Simrad navigation system control, the Simrad DrivePilot™ Hydraulic-Steer Pack does not include or require a dedicated head unit - perfect for smaller vessels with limited helm space. Set a heading, steer to a waypoint, or follow a predefined route, right from your existing touchscreen display - or take control and steer with precision. Easily convert trails to routes - so you can retrace a previous track - with the "one-touch" route creation feature.

Dash-mount Auto/Standby button

The Simrad DrivePilot™ Hydraulic-Steer Pack includes a remote, dash-mount auto/standby button for installation at the helm. This lets you enable the autopilot with ease, or disable the autopilot and take manual control in an instant.

Automatic Turn Patterns

Pre-set turn patterns make manoeuvres such as U-turns simple and fuel efficient, while more complex turn patterns support activities such as fishing, searching for dive sites, or even mapping your favourite lake with Insight Genesis and the built-in sonar or a networked SonarHub sounder module.

Super-Quiet 0.8 L Hydraulic Pump

The Simrad DrivePilot™ Hydraulic-Steer Pack includes a highly efficient `PUMP-1' 0.8 litre hydraulic gear pump, suitable to drive hydraulic steering systems on inboard and single or double outboard vessels under 10 m (35 ft). High efficiency, 12V operation is suitable for smaller vessels, while super-quiet operation helps to keep your time on the water as enjoyable as possible.

Virtual Rudder Feedback

Simplifying autopilot installation and maintenance, Simrad Virtual Rudder Feedback technology means the NAC-1 does not require the installation of a separate feedback unit to track outboard position on single or dual-outboard vessels.

Optional Rudder Position Sensor

On inboard vessels, an RF25N rudder feedback sensor (sold separately) can be used to precisely measure rudder position, providing smooth autopilot operation and a useful indication of rudder angle on your display at the helm. The RF25N includes a 5.5 metre (18 ft) cable with Micro-C connector for easy connection to your boat's NMEA 2000® network.

Easy To Install, Everything Included

This comprehensive kit includes everything required for professional or DIY installation on single or dual-outboard vessels. Detailed instructions are provided, and plug-and-play connectors on the NAC-1 Autopilot Computer help make installation quicker and easier than ever.

Key Features
  • Steer your vessel to a heading, waypoint, route or cursor, with control from your NSS evo2 or NSO evo2 display

Algae Bloom Spawns New Water Monitoring Program In Utah Lake

The result of a harmful algae bloom in the summer of 2016, the enhanced Utah Lake water quality monitoring program, reached its one year milestone in September. Located near the Provo and Orem metropolitan areas, the lake is Utah’s largest freshwater body and a popular water recreation and fishing spot. In the summer of 2016, recreation users reported an unusual amount of scum on the surface of the water. Utah Lake is monitored by the Utah Division of Water Quality (UDWQ). Prior to the 2016 harmful algae bloom (HAB), the UDWQ successfully used regular water sample testing and citizen reporting to stay on top of any incidents.

Data Buoys Study Turbid Water Environments in Lake Erie Basin

What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio. Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay. Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.

Bottom Composition Matters, Underwater Cameras Can Help

As a pro angler, I use my Lowrance electronics every single time I am on the water. They are great at locating fish and structure, but when combined with my FishSens SondeCAM HD Underwater Camera they can show everything. A camera is a great tool for someone who wants to better understand what they are seeing on their electronics and for me, it helps get a clear picture of one of the most important things in bass fishing: bottom composition. Hard Spots Hard bottoms are usually the best, and bass will relate to hard bottoms of different types depending on the region. My Lowrance StructureScan will show hard bottoms as bright, white areas on the screen where softer bottoms will be more grayish.
