http://www.lencoautoglide.com/index.html A Real Automatic Boat Control / Trim Tab Control System that actually works – completely & automatically!
The Auto Glide system controls your trim tabs from the time you leave your dock until you come home again!
The Auto Glide uses engine data and GPS data (depending on your installation method) to drive your boat to the most efficient running angle by adjusting your Lenco trim tabs as needed. This optimum running angle is determined during the set-up process after the installation of your Auto Glide system.
Imagine that your boat’s running angle is measured 25 times per second and this data is used by the new Auto Glide control box to:
Automatically put your boat in the most efficient running angle.
Reduce the amount of bow rise of your boat during hole shot mode.
Eliminate bow porpoising (bow bounce).
Keep your boat level at all times.
These actions will result in a smoother ride and the best possible fuel efficiency.
Note: The Auto Glide does not control the “trim” function of your engine(s) / motor(s). Please remember to use the trim feature exactly as you would in the normal operation of your boat.
The Auto Glide Control Box (brain) consists of gyroscopes, accelerometers, and new, very sophisticated, and patented software.
The Auto Glide has 3 automatic operational modes, 4 automatic settings, and 2 manual operational modes. Although you will most likely keep your Auto Glide in automatic mode, you may immediately convert to manual mode simply by pressing one of the 4 up/down buttons on the key pad. All of these functions are fully explained in our Owner’s Manual B / Operational Instructions.
