The Autotiller is amazingly simple to operate. Just plug it in, then head the yacht in the direction you want to go, and hit Auto. It is truly a one button machine.

An Autotiller for a tiller driven boat is a single arm device. It fits into a secure purpose built, small plug in the seat. The other end fits onto the tiller. It is connected to a compass, and gives you readouts on the screen about where you are headed.

You can alter course by hitting either 1 degree, or 10 degrees, left or right. Of course you can quickly temporarily remove it, tack or jibe the boat, then reattach it.
