Outboard Pilot Hydraulic Pack

Available Now for HDS Gen2 and HDS Gen3 units

Autopilot pack for Lowrance High Definition System (HDS) displays, providing automatic steering for hydraulic-steer outboard motors. An extra pair of hands when you need it, the Outboard Pilot, featuring Lowrance SmartSteer™ control from your HDS Gen2 or HDS Gen3, will steer to a heading, waypoint or route.

Everything you need in one box to fit an autopilot to your hydraulic-steer outboard motor, the Outboard Pilot lets you focus on fishing activity while keeping the boat on course. When connected to an HDS Gen2 or HDS Gen3, the Outboard Pilot can steer to a waypoint or along a route, select a turn pattern or simply hold a constant heading. The Lowrance SmartSteer™ user interface allows you to easily switch between electric-steer, trolling-motor control and outboard motor control directly from your HDS display. And, with your HDS display, you can easily convert trails to routes – so you can retrace a previous track and get your boat back to the dock from your fishing area.

The Lowrance Outboard Pilot is recommended for single outboard set-ups, on boats that are 30 feet and less, in length.

Hydraulic-Steer Kit includes everything to connect your existing hydraulic-steering manual helm pump:

  • Pump-1 is a 0.8L reversible hydraulic pump designed to interface to Seastar steering
  • Hydraulic fitting Kit is compatible with Seastar manual helm pumps
