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 drives the boat to the active waypoint and begins the pattern.

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 Menu > Pattern Steering > Search.
  2. If necessary, select Search Spacing, and select a distance.
  3. Select Engage Port or Engage Starboard.
