Raymarine’s new Evolution autopilots employ what the company calls its Evolution AI control algorithms, which enable them to “perceive their environment” and then instantly calculate and “evolve” a set of steering commands to maximize performance. The result is precise and confident course keeping, regardless of vessel speed or sea state. The autopilots also employ an ultra-compact EV sensor core: basically a 9-axis heading sensor and full-function course computer, all in one. This core is fully waterproof, about the same size as a typical marine GPS sensor and can be bracket-mounted or flush-mounted either above or belowdecks, depending on your boat’s size and layout.

From $1,599. Raymarine, raymarine.com
