Navman AP338, excellent interface

Navman AP338 dodge_screenEvery year I get to pick five especially innovative and/or well executed electronics products for Sail magazine’s February “Editor Picks” section. Right now a top contender is Navman’s AP338 autopilot, not for performance (it’s darn hard to test autopilots) but because its interface is amazing. Almost any pilot can “dodge” an obstacle, usually 10 degrees per button push, but this one actually shows you what the commands are doing to your heading and what you can do next. There’s much more to this interface but I’m working with a flaky WiFi connection this morning, and busy, so for now I’m just going to link you to my writeup in June PMY.
