FLIR Systems has announced Evolution Release 4, the most significant update to its Raymarine Evolution Autopilots. Evolution R4 is designed to add accuracy and responsiveness of control for sailing and powerboats alike.

The Evolution R4 upgrade expands the system’s 9-axis EV sensor core with algorithms that improve the accuracy of measured wind conditions for better steer-to-wind control. The R4 upgrade also adds Evolution TrackIQ for steer-to GPS waypoint tracking.

“With our advanced Evolution heading and positioning technology, Raymarine autopilots have set a new standard for accurate and responsive autopilot performance in the boating industry,” Gregoire Outters, vice president and general manager of FLIR Maritime, stated in a press release.
