Re: Handheld GPS differences

Yes, my autopilot can be steered by selecting points on the GPS. It is nice because the system will learn and correct for leeway.

Another nice autopilot feature is having it follow a wind direction so that it can head up or down automatically when there are headers and lifters.

I use all of these features (go to point, follow compass heading, follow wind) at different times.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
