Mercury Cruise Control


You are responsible for the safe and prudent operation of your vessel. Mercury® Cruise Control does not steer the boat for you and does not avoid navigational hazards. Failure to safely operate your boat could result in an accident causing property damage, serious personal injury, or death.

When connected to a compatible Mercury engine, you can set and adjust the cruise-control function using the chartplotter.
