III. AUTOMATIC SETTINGS

  • Last update: 03 July 2013

The Auto Glide has four (4) AUTOMATIC SETTINGS (AUTO, FAV 1, FAV 2 AND HOLD) that enable you to select up to four (4) different HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS. This section of the operations manual explains why you might want to store different HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSTIONS and how to save these alternative home positions using the Key Pad.

As you know from the previous section, the Auto Glide moves the trim tabs until the boat’s CURRENT ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS match the HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS. When you first start your motor(s), the Auto Glide defaults to the “AUTO” AUTOMATIC SETTING and levels the boat around the HOME ROLL AND PITCH DEFAULT POSITIONS

that were saved during the initial Auto Glide Setup that was described in the Auto Glide Owner’s Manual A. However, there will be times when you will want level the boat around a different HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITION that might not be level from side to side or might not be the most efficient running angle.

A. “AUTO” SETTING:

When you set the HOME ROLL AND PITCH DEFAULT POSITIONS during the SETUP PROCESS described in the Auto Glide Owner’s Manual A, the Auto Glide saved those positions as the HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS for the “AUTO” AUTOMATIC SETTING.

 Even though the “AUTO” SETTING’S HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS will keep the boat level side to side and running at its most efficient pitch angle, there will be times that the water conditions may be choppy or coming at the boat at an angle and the boat will run more comfortably if it wasn’t level or running at its most efficient running angle. During these adverse water conditions, the Auto Glide provides you with the option of storing three additional automatic HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS that might make the boat run more comfortably.

B. “FAV 1” ,“FAV 2” and “HOLD” AUTOMATIC SETTINGS:

The Auto Glide has three additional AUTOMATIC SETTINGS; FAV 1, FAV 2 and HOLD. Each of these settings can save HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS that are different from the “AUTO” SETTING’S HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS. The “FAV 1” and “FAV 2” alternative HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS are permanently saved in the Auto Glide and are available to you anytime you press the “FAV 1” or “FAV 2” BUTTONS on the Key Pad. The “HOLD” alternative HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITION is only temporarily saved in the Auto Glide and will be erased whenever you press any other button on the Key Pad or turn “OFF” your motor(s).

 

   1. SAVING “FAV 1” and “FAV 2” HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS:

Before you can save an alternative HOME ROLL AND PITCH SETTINGS for “FAV 1” and “FAV 2”, you must first place the Auto Glide in MANUAL MODE, by pressing any of the four UP/DN buttons on the Key Pad. This puts the Auto Glide in MANUAL MODE and you are now in control of the trim tabs.

You must find your desired roll and pitch position by manually operating the trim tabs. Once the boat reaches the desired roll and pitch angles, press and hold the “FAV 1” or “FAV 2” BUTTON until the corresponding “FAV 1” or “FAV 2” LED INDICATOR flashes five (5) times. Once the “FAV 1” or “FAV 2” LED INDICATOR stops flashing, the Auto Glide saves the alternative HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITION and the boat will begin leveling around that roll and pitch angle.

 

  2. RESETTING “FAV 1” AND “FAV 2” HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS:

Once a HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITION has been saved for “FAV 1” and/or “FAV 2”, the positions are permanently stored in the Auto Glide. You can turn your motor(s) and battery switch(s) off and these alternative HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS will continue to be saved in the Auto Glide. However, if you ever want to change the HOME AND PITCH POSITIONS for either of the “FAV 1” or “FAV 2” AUTOMATIC SETTINGS, you simply have to go into MANUAL MODE, manually change the roll and pitch positions of the boat as described earlier in this section, and then press and hold the corresponding “FAV 1” or “FAV 2” BUTTON until the LED INDICATOR flashes five (5) times.

 

  3. SAVING “HOLD” HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS: 

Saving the “HOLD” HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS are very similar to saving the “FAV 1” or “FAV 2” HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS. Once the boat reaches the desired roll and pitch angles, PRESS and RELEASE the “HOLD” BUTTON. Since the “HOLD” HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITIONS is only a temporary position, you do not have to continue to hold the “HOLD” BUTTON for the Auto Glide to save the CURRENT ROLL AND PITCH POSITION as the HOME ROLL AND PITCH POSITION. 

NOTE: The “HOLD” home roll and pitch position is only a temporary setting. It will be erased as soon as you touch any button on the key pad or turn off your motor(s).
