ChannelPilot offers freedom from the Pilot Plug. It is a cost-effective, semi-independent PPU's, offering a combination of independent mGNSS positioning and highly accurate rate-of-turn with semi-independent heading data.
ChannelPilot also offers excellent independent AIS target reception and is an outstanding aid to narrow channel navigation, as well as supporting restricted manoeuvres in some circumstances.
With appropriate software, ChannelPilot offers many safety benefits, including assistance in poor visibility as well as the ability to receive SBAS corrections (where available).
ChannelPilot is a superb alternative to other high end Portable Pilot Units.
