In a Man Over Board situation, it triggers an audible alarm to warn the crew and display bearing and distance to the Man Over Board on all multifunction displays. If the pilot is engaged the following actions are automatic:
In Solo Mode :
boat turns into the wind if your instrument system includes a wind sensor
rudder turns to the end stop on the opposite side if your instrument system does not include a wind sensor.
In addition to this transmitter/remote control, you can have up to 7 other M.O.B. Rescue Aids allowing for each member of your family / crew. They all trigger alarms in the same way.
The transmitters are continuously sending their ID code to the system. In case of radio signal break, you are immediately warned. No need to jump in the water to check if the system works!
