Lowrance Outboard Pilot Cable-Steer Pack


For your Lowrance HDS gen2 units, and subsequent models


Outboard Pilot Cable-Steer Pack

Available Now for HDS Gen2 and HDS Gen3 units
The autopilot pack for Lowrance High Definition System (HDS) displays, provides automatic steering for cable-steer outboard motors. An extra pair of hands when you need it, the Outboard Pilot, featuring Lowrance SmartSteer™ control from your HDS Gen2 or Gen3, will steer to a heading, waypoint or route.

Everything you need in one box to fit an autopilot to your cable-steer outboard motor, the Outboard Pilot lets you focus on fishing activity while keeping the boat on course. When connected to a Lowrance HDS Gen2 or Gen3, the Outboard Pilot can steer to a waypoint or along a route, select a turn pattern or simply hold a constant heading. The Lowrance SmartSteer™ user interface allows you to easily switch between electric-steer, trolling-motor control and outboard motor control directly from your HDS display. And, with your HDS display, you can easily convert trails to routes – so you can retrace a previous track and get your boat back to the dock from your fishing area.

The Lowrance Outboard Pilot is recommended for single outboard set-ups, on boats that are 30 feet and less, in length.
