Chris Meyer from Lowrance walks us through how to use Mercury VesselView in conjunction with your Lowrance electronics to automatically control your outboard motor at predetermined RPMs and course headings. You operate all your outboard controls through your touchscreen Lowrance unit. Control steering, throttle, Eco mode, Tow mode all by tapping the screen. Chris calls it “SmartCraft on steroids”.
