Autopilot for Tiller Steered Sailboats

The EV-100 Tiller Pilot is a complete autopilot solution for tiller-steered sailboats. Designed for DIY installations, the EV-100 Tiller Pilot's externally mounted drive mounts in the cockpit, attached to the tiller. The EV-100 Tiller Pilot delivers precision autopilot control using the intelligent EV-1 sensor core and the ACU-100 actuator control unit. EV-100 Tiller Pilot systems are available with a p70s autopilot control head, or choose a system without a control head and use a Raymarine Axiom chartplotter for complete autopilot control.
