UPGRADE YOUR AUTOPILOT SYSTEM AND SAVE MONEY AT THE SAME TIME

Tired of being let down every time you go to use your autopilot? Thinking of replacing your autopilot because you want the latest bells and whistles? ComNav Marine can solve both problems and save you up to 40% on replacement and installation costs. With ComNav Marine Autopilots you can upgrade your system, get the latest features and save money by using your existing autopilot drive unit. Even though the autopilot you have now isn't performing like it used to, your drive unit is probably as good as the day it was installed. So why replace a perfectly good drive unit when all the you want is the latest features and benefits. Take advantage of this great opportunity and look over the handy reference chart provided below. We have listed the most common autopilot systems sold over the years and how to upgrade each one with a ComNav Autopilot.
