AutoBuddy - Remote Control for Raymarine / Autohelm SeaTalk Autopilots
Wrist Remote Same size as a Watch!
Make course changes +1/-1/+10/-10, Auto/Standby, Track, Wind Trim and Auto Tack from your wrist! This package includes one wearable wrist transmitter with a velcro strap and the AutoBuddy receiver module for SeaTalk compatible autopilots. The receiver module comes with connections for the 'rectangular' SeaTalk connector and 3 binding posts for direct wire connections to other autopilot computers, giving you the flexibility to wire the receiver module any way you need to.
HIGH gain omnidirectional antenna is articulated to orient for maximum range reception. Optional 15 dBi ultra high range antenna is available.
Our ProTACK auto tacking technology tacks like a sailor, or use the standard autopilot auto tack. The rate of tacking can be adjusted for boat size on the receiver module during installation and can also be fine tuned for wind and sea conditions from the wrist transmitter.
The wrist transmitter features up to 100' (30m) wireless range, a velcro strap, and colour coded buttons. The transmitter never needs recharging. It is powered by 2 small lithium coin cells that will likely last forever and never need replacing or recharging. AutoBuddy is always ready to control your autopilot, instantly and without fail. You can have as many transmitters as you like, there's no limit. Mount one on the bulkhead near your winches - handy when tacking.

1 AutoBuddy ST receiver - dimensions 4"x2.5"x1.75"H (10cm x 6.3cm x 4.5cm H)
1 High Gain Omnidirectional 315 MHz Articulated Antenna
