TMQ AP55 Autopilot




The TMQ AP-55 autopilot is undoubtedly the first choice for the discerning mariner. Whilst being designed specifically to meet the stringent technological demands of the modern marine industry, the AP-55 was also developed by TMQ with ease of operation in mind.

The head unit has a modern ergonomic design which features a large LCD display and a backlight to make it highly visible. Multiple AP-55 control heads as well as the AP-500 display can be installed on your vessel which will show the same information. The separate display of the AP-55 allows the separate MCU from the main computer. The AP-55 Autopilot can be integrated with navigational aids such as a GPS or GPS plotter to provide waypoint steering.

Display modes

From the push pads on the control head any of a number of modes can be utilised:
Manual Mode: The autopilot display unit shows the current magnetic heading. The vessel is under manual steering control and does not apply automatic steering control.
Auto Mode: The autopilot will maintain your vessel on any desired magnetic course. This course can be set from the Display Unit.
GPS Mode: When receiving information from a GPS the autopilot can steer a vessel to a precise latitude and longitude, through any number of desired course changes.

Drive units

TMQ can supply a range of reversing pumps or linear drive unit for installation on yachts.
