Selected User Reviews For Raymarine P70S Ap Control Head (Pushbutton)

This version works well, but the backward compatibility is not available

You get a lot of bang for your buck! This is one of my old STs For 18 years, the 4000 + autohelm system worked nicely, but after about 15 years, the drive unit literally fell apart. I replaced it with another and the procedure was painless. Sadly, the control unit failed later on. Since the replacement P70S was not compatible with the older compass, I had to purchase the EV-700 In addition, there are 100 units. It costs more to buy pieces of something piecemeal. The package I would have bought if I knew that's what I would need would have been much better for me. In general, the P70S works great and installation was easy, since the existing holes were used. There is a lot of color and brightness in the display. One complaint I have is that the display disappears when I lean forward. Since the unit is mounted on the side of the cockpit, there is no shield to protect You have to use awkward body language in order to see it clearly. Instead of being mounted next to the wheel, the unit should be mounted forward. It's a costly system from Raymarine, but it can accommodate multiple control points and input sensors thanks to its flexibility. You get a lot of bang for your buck!.

It's as easy as plugging and playing

In fact, I bought this display for my very old Raymarine autopilot, since the old one was not working very well, so I wrote to Raymarine and they told me that this display was compatible with the My purchase arrived yesterday, Sunday 30. It was easy to set up, just plug and play. Next weekend I plan to put it to the test on the water. Please stay tuned for more information, so far everything is fine.

There are two buttons on the remote which are irritating and dangerous to use the standby and auto buttons

My preference is for this new model over the older one I have in my cockpit, which I would only rate a 3 out of 5. One thing I find really annoying and potentially dangerous is the standby and auto buttons, which are so poorly lit at night and share half of their function with other buttons. As a result of having to press standby in an emergency, I almost had a boating accident at night.
