A. KEY PAD BUTTONS

The Auto Glide Key Pad has two (2) Bow Down and two (2) Bow Up buttons that provide manual control of the trim tabs at any time. There are also four (4) Automatic Setting Buttons on the outer corners of the key pad that enable you to select up to four different automatic Home Roll and Pitch positions that the Auto Glide will use to level the boat.

B. KEY PAD BUTTON LED INDICATORS

Each of the Key Pad Buttons also has a corresponding LED Indicator that illuminates to indicate that the button is being activated (either manually or automatically).

C. CROSSHAIR LED INDICATORS

The Crosshair LED Indicators are constantly showing the boat’s CURRENT ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS compared to the HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITION. As the boat rocks back and forth on the water, the Auto Glide is constantly tracking the boat’s position and displaying it on the crosshairs. Roll and Pitch Positions are illuminated independently of each other on the Horizontal and Vertical Crosshairs.

The Auto Glide is constantly measuring the boat’s CURRENT ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS at the rate of 25 times per second. However, that information is dampened so that the Auto Glide does not overreact to every small movement of the boat. You will most likely notice the dampening because the CURRENT ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS are displayed on the Key Pad slower than the boat is actually moving.

The following examples illustrate how the boat’s CURRENT ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS are shown to you on the Key Pad’s Crosshair LED Indicators:

EXAMPLE #1: THE BOAT CURRENT ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS MATCH THE AUTO GLIDE’S HOME ROLL AND PITCH DEFAULT POSITIONS: 

EXAMPLE #2: THE CURRENT ROLL POSITION IS ROLLED TO PORT, BUT THE CURRENT PITCH POSITION MATCHES THE AUTO GLIDE’S HOME PITCH DEFAULT POSITION.

EXAMPLE #3: THE CURRENT ROLL POSITION IS ROLLED TO STARBOARD AND THE CURRENT PITCH POSITION IS ABOVE THE HOME PITCH DEFAULT POSITION.
