Setting Up and Following a Search Pattern

You can use the search pattern to steer the boat in increasingly larger circles outward from the active waypoint, forming a spiral pattern. When you begin the search pattern, the autopilot immediately drives the boat in a circle centered on the active waypoint and expands the spiral as it completes each circle.

You can adjust the distance between each circle in the spiral. The default distance between circles is 50 ft. (20 m).

  1. From the autopilot screen, select Options > Pattern Steering > Search.
  2. If necessary, select Search Spacing, and select a distance.
  3. Select Engage Port or Engage Starboard.
