ComNav's new 221 and 222 Engine Remotes allow boaters to control vital functions, such as engine speed and course changes, from a handheld unit. The 221 is designed for single-engine boats, while the 222 works with twin-engine vessels. Both models are compatible with MMC Micro Commander and Mathers systems, and each remote provides the operator with full access to throttle and engine-shifting functions. The vessel's heading is shown on an LCD and the 60-foot cord lets the user drive the boat from almost anywhere aboard. A "tiller" dial provides steering control, while other functions allow remote access to autopilot and engine settings. ComNav's model 221 sells for $1,130, while model 222 sells for $1,230.
