The new SmartController is another sign that Raymarine’s R&D department has been burning the midnight oil. It brings wireless control and display freedom to almost any of the company’s autopilot and instrument systems. The 62x127-pixel screen can show up to eight user-defined pages, each of which can show one (big font!) to four lines of text, or even graphics. A $705 kit includes an easily installed SeaTalk base station with a 32-foot range (extendable with additional stations). A smaller, $460 S100 remote only controls the autopilot and is also the primary control for a new, small-boat point-and-shoot autopilot. —B.E.
