Compatible With All Major Autopilot Brand Electronics – Simple solutions for difficult installations

The heart of this pilot drive system is the remote drive as shown is the photo. The drive unit is connected to the boat steering by a cable and connection kit.

The remote drive system is ideal for the following three types of engine applications:

  1. Stern drives also known as I/O drives or Z drives
  2. Inboard engines requiring traditional rudder steering

Optional Rudder Feedback Unit

One of the most complex and time-consuming aspects of autopilot installation is fitting the rudder feedback unit, ensuring that the geometry matches the full range of rudder movement.  The Octopus rudder feedback unit solves these problems as it mounts directly to the drive unit itself.
