The new SP36 Autopilot from Si-Tex offers Full Virtual Feedback capabilities, eliminating the need for a rudder feedback unit on outboard-powered or sterndrive vessels. Installation is straightforward and uncomplicated, and reliability is improved with the elimination of the mechanical rudder- feedback system.

Among the features engineered into the SP36 is Intelligent Steering Technology, which learns a vessel’s steering characteristics over time and fine-tunes its settings and parameters to deliver optimum steering performance.
 
The SP36 also features Auto Setup (so system calibration is a breeze); Auto Drive Detection; Auto Tune; and Auto Compass Calibration for the system’s new one-piece, three-axis compass. Parameter sets for outboard and inboard power accommodate planing, semi-displacement and displacement hulls, further assisting setup. $3,299; www.si-tex.com.
