SABIKI™ mode lets the autopilot take control while you are drifting astern, so you can focus on fishing instead of steering. Moving astern at a slow pace the SABIKI™ mode is uniquely tailored for sabiki fishing, jigging and bottom fishing.
SABIKI™ mode is only available on vessels with outboard engines.
With the SABIKI™mode turned on, the direction can be kept just by adjusting the throttle.
In order to keep the same direction, it is not sufficient to just reverse the engine and move astern. The steering has to be constantly adjusted to keep direction.
Self learning and adaptive software
Each time the boat goes to sea, the software learns about sea conditions and automatically calculate the best adjustements for a smooth steering
Furuno's "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.

SAFE HELM and POWER ASSIST
SAFE 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 POWER ASSIST 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.

Various Display modes
Various display modes are available on the NAVpilot-300, allowing you to obtain all the necessary data you need thanks to user-friendly menu and graphics, either digital or analog. The NAVpilot-300 also features day/night graphic display, offering perfect viewability no matter the time
NavNet TZtouch2 Full Control
(V6.1 coming soon)
The NavNet TZtouch2 v6.1 or later software allows full control of the NAVpilot-300. Not only can the modes be changed or the course adjusted, the user is also able to change installation settings, function parameters and use Fish Hunter™ modes. With NavNet TZtouch 2 MDFs (TZTL12F/15F and TZT2BB) as primary control units, the user can have full control of the autopilot.
NAVpilot-300 controls can be displayed in two ways on your NavNet TZtouch2 MFD, depending on your preference. You can have a Side data panel on the left side of the screen, which quickly slides in and out with a swipe of your finger. This is perfect when you want to use a full or two-way split screen for other functions. The other option is to display the NAVpilot-300 controls in a quarter screen instrument window. Both methods allow for easy and intuitive control of the Autopilot.
