Using Cruise Control with Bluetooth i-Pilot Link (2017-2023)

During regular operation of the i-Pilot Link navigational system, the user can control prop speed. The controller will communicate the speed over ground to the remote and the remote will display it. The speed over ground is the speed that the boat is traveling and will vary based on environmental factors such as wind and current, even if the prop speed remains the same. Cruise Control helps to compensate for the variations in external forces that effect the speed over ground and keeps the boat traveling at an even speed . When Cruise Control is engaged, the current speed over ground becomes the Target Speed. Cruise Control works to control the prop speed to match the Speed Over Ground to the Target Speed.
