Perfect for inboard or outboard power boats and sail boats
- allows for no physical rudder feedback unit for a streamlined installation and precise course control
Furuno's all-new "Fantum Feedback" NAVpilot software clears the path to a simplified installation, while also delivering enhanced steering control. With Fantum Feedback, NAVpilot outboard installations no longer require use of a physical rudder feedback unit.
Fantum Feedback is a menu-selectable feature available in the latest NAVpilot-300 and NAVpilot-700 series software. This software was developed and extensively tested on a wide variety of outboard vessels with hydraulic steering and reversing pump control. Fantum Feedback achieves precise course control, from slow trolling speeds to high-speed cruising, utilizing a newly developed gain process, rather than traditional rudder angle based control.
Simplified activation set-up by on-screen wizard
Utilizes a self-learning and adaptive software algorithm
From the first dock-side setup through the last voyage you made, NAVpilot continues to learn your vessel's steering characteristics. This allows dynamic adjustments to the boat's steering for vessel speed, trim, draft, tide and wind effects, weather, etc. These characteristics are stored in the processor's memory where they are continuously optimized to make the NAVpilot more versatile.
Optional revolutionary SAFE HELM and POWER ASSIST brings unrivaled steering control and comfort at the helm*
The SAFE HELM temporally switches the NAVpilot to manual steering for a specified time interval.
The POWER ASSIST reduces steering system complexity and costs while increasing fuel economy
The POWER ASSIST is a unique helm-activated assisted steering feature that can augment and possibly replace separate electric and power-robbing, engine-driven power steering systems on many vessels. POWER ASSIST reduces steering system complexity and costs while increasing economy.
* Required Options - HRP11 or HRP17 Pump and FPS8 Power Steering
Selectable "Economy" and "Precision" Navigation Modes combine adaptive technology providing fuel and power savings of up to 2.5% or more.**

Bright & Clear Display
Various display modes are available, allowing you to customize the data to suit your own preferences with either digital or analog graphics.
The new NAVpilot-711C features a color day/night graphic display, giving you much better sunlight viewability during the day, while not affecting your night vision when the sun goes down.
Simple one-touch mode selection enables flexible steering and course control
Furuno's new NAVpilot series is designed to match the NavNet TZtouch, NavNet 3D, FI-50 Instrument series and other navigation equipment. The “Plug and Play” CAN bus interface allows for easy installation and exceptional interface ability. The diagrams below show typical installations for power and sail boats.
Defferent mode variations
TThe NAVpilot will activate the FishHunter to perform square, zigzag, circle, orbit, spiral or gure eight maneuvers around the specied target at a user selected distance. This feature can also be used for Man Overboard (MOB).
