EV-DBW Overview

The EV-DBW Pilot system is an advanced, digital autopilot for boats with drive-by-wire electronic steering.  

The EV-2 sensor core communicates directly with the boat's digital steering system using CAN bus communication for accurate, reliable autopilot control.   

The EV-DBW Pilot kit includes the p70Rs color, rotary autopilot controller, EV-2 sensor core, and an Evolution cabling kit.

EV-DBW Pilot Key Features
