Orca supports mode change, heading control, and following a route when your autopilot is connected to the Orca Core.

Getting started with Autopilot control

  1. Power on your Autopilot

  2. Connect your Orca Display or Orca Mobile Application to your Orca Core

  3. Press Instruments at the bottom of the chart screen

  4. Swipe to the left-most instrument page to find your autopilot controls

From the autopilot screen, you will be able to change the mode and heading of your autopilot.

Following a route

To follow a route, create a route in Orca and select Nav as your navigation mode. Orca supports advancing through waypoints as traditional chartplotters.

Note: Simrad, B&G, and Lowrance autopilots only support a single navigation source. For Nav mode to work, you'll need to set Orca as your Navigation Data source on your Autopilot's Head Unit display.
