The TR-1 Gladiator fits most any size or style of boat that has hydraulic steering, including Mercury Verado outboards. The TR-1 puts safety first. Its patented Shadow Drive™ system is a standard feature which gives the Captain the confidence that she is in full control of the boat at all times while in autopilot mode. There is never a need to put the autopilot into standby mode to gain control of the helm. The Shadow Drive sensor will automatically send a command to the course computer not to counteract hand steering. When you steer the boat on a new steady heading, release the helm and the autopilot will re-engage automatically. The Shadow Drive will accommodate multiple helms. The Gladiator Autopilot is sold separately as components, so it can be customized for a variety of installations.
• You will need to contact a Fisheries Supply salesperson for advice in selecting the correct individual components for your application. We will ask you about your engine type, the volume of your steering cylinder(s), and whether your steering cylinder configuration is balanced or not
