«Navis NavAP 5 was installed in September 2019

With good clear instructions we were able to calibrate the NavAP 5 during our voyage from Finland to Turkey.
The movement of the rudder in heading mode and course mode are now at lot less compared to our previous AP3000 autopilot.
The NavAP 5 has a good overview of all important settings on the display.
Also these settings are easy to change with the knob and set button.
The display has a nice colour settings for day/dusk/night.

  • Very handy & easy to operate
  • Can adjust the conditions of the ship
  • Set courses can be adjusted to decimals».
