The A2004 is a dedicated autopilot controller designed to meet the needs of professional mariners aboard a variety of commercial vessels. It features a proven Simrad interface, presented on a wide-angle and zero-fog colour display. Engineered for responsiveness and ease of use, the A2004 pairs a precision rotary control dial with dedicated buttons for instant access to steering modes, a custom-configurable Work mode, and automated turn patterns.

The A2004 builds upon the proven user interface and keypad layout of the Simrad AP70 and AP80 professional autopilot controllers, and delivers consistency with the latest generation of Simrad radar, sonar, and ECDIS displays.A large aluminium rotary control dial enables quick but precise steering adjustments, while dedicated keys offer instant access to steering modes, a custom-configurable Work mode, and automated turn patterns. All built-in controls are designed for ease of use with wet or gloved hands, in commercial settings such as fishing vessels and workboats. The A2004 also supports a wide range of Simrad autopilot remotes and steering levers.

Every Simrad steering innovation builds upon a legacy encompassing over sixty years of autopilot development, which continues to this day. This legacy is exemplified by the Continuum algorithm: the software behind Simrad steering technology. Continuum steering distils years of research and on-water testing into a flexible software solution, capable of delivering reliable auto-steering performance tuned specifically to match a vessel’s control characteristics. With a comprehensive range of hardware and interface modules, Simrad autopilot solutions can be tailored to suit a wide range of commercial vessels and applications.

To ensure optimal visibility in all conditions, the A2004’s colour LCD panel is optically bonded to its protective glass covering — eliminating the possibility of internal condensation. Transflective LCD technology makes use of reflected sunlight to brighten rather than obscure the screen, delivering superior day-time visibility and lower power consumption compared to traditional backlit displays. An ultra-wide 170 degree viewing angle means key autopilot information is clearly visible at a glance, from anywhere in sight of the display.

The A2004 enables autopilot control of a single thruster via an optional AD80 or SD80 interface module. The thruster can be set to engage automatically below a user-defined speed threshold, and configured separately for normal and Work modes. The A2004 also supports specialized heavy-duty rudder feedback units designed for reliable operation aboard commercial vessels.

Where do I start! This man is a genius, I may have ordered a amateurs dream from this man, went all out on garmin products from gpsmap screens to the live scope lv34 and to juice them up I went with all powerhouse batteries and charging units! Well now on the boat I’m staring at this out dated minnkota and it just looked out of place so I went ahead and ordered up the KRAKEN! I can’t stop bragging on how much you have helped me, even face timing me on the water to fine tune my Livescope, there is no big box store that could even come close to offer this level of customer service! You will forever be my go to company! Thank you again!

Very fast shipping. Very knowledgeable guy to deal with. I inquired after hours and Chad responded quickly and chatted with me for way longer than necessary because I knew nothing about livescope. Who offers there cell phone number to call with any install questions??? Chad does. I got a friend request from him and accepted. Felt like I bought from someone who values my purchase as well as my friendship. We may never meet but I feel like I have gained a great friend. Thanks Chad for all your time spent explaining what I wanted and giving me choices. This won't be my last purchase..

It has been a pleasure dealing with Chad at Chaddy Boys! I had contacted him many times on the phone and has been very helpful! I felt like we had been old friends for a long period of time! Chad sent me many quotes and was very helpful on choosing the electronics setup I was seeking! I ordered my unit and received it on exact date I was quoted! I will definitely be buying from Chaddy Boys again!

This 16 volt battery and Run and Gun Charger is the only way to outfit your boat. Fish all day with no worries. Chad is very knowledgeable and helpful with the everything you need for a great day on the water. Now just waiting for a 36 volt to have the perfect setup. Thanks Chad.
Update* Well we just installed the second battery and run and gun charger. Took out 3 lead acid and about 120 lbs. Looking forward to the new system. Gonna be awesome. Thanks again Chad
