BRP, a world leader in motor sports, today announced the launch of a revolutionary joystick system that instills 360 degrees of confidence when it comes to docking your boat, Evinrude’s iDock joystick steering system. Available in boats with dual Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine from 150 to 300 hp, the new integrated, intuitive and affordable system is designed to allow user-friendly joystick technology to be available to more boaters.
Evinrude’s iDock allows users to easily operate their boat using a joystick that allows simple docking even in the most difficult conditions. The joystick system allows users to move the boat to one side or turn it in place with control at their fingertips. Advanced aircraft gyro sensor technology makes it possible to pilot iDock more intuitively by automatically compensating for wind and current. If additional power is needed to overcome the wind or current, navigators can simply push the lever further to the reinforcement position to double the boost. The simplicity of the system requires much less time to get used to, which creates a more positive first experience of navigation.
