4 NAVMAN G-PILOT 3380 System Installation Manual
It is the owner’s sole responsibility to install and use the instrument and transducer/s in a manner
that will not cause accidents, personal injury or property damage. The user of this product is solely
responsible for observing safe boating practices.
The choice, location, and installation of all components in any autoG-PILOT system is critical. If
installation is not correct, the unit can not perform at its designed potential. If in doubt, consult
your Navman dealer. Ensure that any holes that cut are in a safe position and will not weaken the
boat’s structure. If in doubt, consult a qualified boat builder.
Using the G-PILOT 3380 system :
The G-PILOT 3380 system is intended as an aid to save a helmsman from having to steer for
long periods of time, not as the main means of steering the boat.
The G-PILOT 3380 system is not intended for use in extreme weather, in adverse conditions or
in water near other boats, dangerous waters or land.
The G-PILOT 3380 system can not control the boat better than a helmsman. In adverse
conditions steer the boat manually.
Never leave the helm unattended. Keep a watch at all times. The helmsman should always
monitor the course of the boat and the G-PILOT 3380 system and be ready to resume steering
the boat manually.
The performance of the G-PILOT 3380 system can be affected by the failure of a part,
environmental conditions, improper installation and use.
