Simrad AP24 Marine Autopilot Systems, ideal for power, fishing and sailing boats from 35 to 80 feet.Simrad AP24 Marine Autopilot utilizes the Simrad Intelligent Marine Network - SimNet, which features plug and play operation and Slim Line connectors for easy cable routing, so you'll be up and running in very little time. The ability to 'daisy chain' SimNet instruments in any order allows you to use the most efficient cable runs possible when installing the equipment.


  • Virtual Rudder Feedback
    This unique feature, recently introduced to Simrad autopilots means that no rudder feedback unit is needed for outboards and stern drive boats. In terms of installation, you will save a huge amount of time and aggravation thanks to this sophisticated new feature.

  • Automatic Tuning
    Simrad AP24 Autopilot includes a number of self calibrating features that automatically compensate for the unique handling characteristics of your boat and sea conditions, insuring optimum performance without the need for expert manual calibration.
    Simrad engineering ensures that you can always go to sea in the confidence that your Autopilot is pin-point accurate and highly reliable.

  • Contour Steering
    This unique Simrad feature utilises data from your fishfinder or depth instrument to maintain a set water depth, just as if you were manually steering your boat along depth contours on a paper chart. This leaves you free to concentrate on the big catch, enjoy the shoreline view or trim your sail.

  • Advanced Wind Steering
    The AWS feature provides unbeatable autopilot performance for any sailing vessel. AWS is ideal for single-handed sailing or racing. Utilising wind and GPS data simultaneously, it is possible to hit long distance waypoints dead-on, without deviating from the original course line or build-up of significant cross track error.

  • Rate Of Turn Control
    Simrad AP24 Autopilot is equipped with advanced control algorithms that enable smooth and precise turns regardless of sea conditions. This feature also improves tack and gybe performance on sailboats.

  • Data Pages
    Simrad AP24 Autopilot includes a number of data pages where you can view autopilot parameters such as compass heading, set course, rudder position, as well as information received from other SimNet compatible equipment such as GPS navigation data and Simrad IS20 Instruments wind, depth and speed data.

  • Multi-Station Operation
    Expanded multi-station compatibility offers several control options including use of Simrad AP28 Autopilot control unit. Any future autopilot control units will also work thanks to the SimNet system.
