Following an Orbit Pattern

Before you can use this steering pattern, the helm control must be connected to the same NMEA 2000® network as a compatible Garmin® chartplotter and a GPS source.

You can use the orbit pattern to steer the boat in a continuous circle around the active waypoint. The size of the circle is defined by your distance from the active waypoint when you begin the orbit pattern.

See the owner's manual for your Garmin chartplotter for more information about setting and using waypoints.

  1. From the autopilot screen, select Menu icon > Pattern Steering > Orbit.
  2. Select Engage Port or Engage Starboard.
