AutoBuddy is a radio frequency remote that gives you freedom you've never had before.  It works with ALL SeaTalk (ST) and non-SeaTalk versions of Autohelm and Raymarine autopilots as well as Simrad/Robertson.  A waterproof transmitter you wear on your wrist like a watch and a small receiver module that you connect to your autopilot.  Just Imagine:

  • Freedom:    walk around your boat, dodging crab traps and other obstacles

  • Fun:              don't be tied to the wheel, sit with everybody up forward

  • Efficiency:  single handed tacking with your hands free

​ProTACK - Tacks like a Sailor - not a Computer!


AutoBuddy SeaTalk version supports the autopilot default auto-tacking as well as ProTACK technology, an enhanced tacking algorithm that tacks like a sailor, not a computer!  Pulls the bow through the wind quickly, then heads up briefly while you handle the sails before continuing to the tack heading.  The speed of the ProTACK can be adjusted from the wrist unit to compensate for wind and sea conditions. 

AutoBuddy makes audible sounds to let you know what it's doing.  AutoBuddy can also enable Wind mode tracking on SeaTalk autopilots which have a wind instrument connected.
