SeaStar Solutions Optimus 360

The full SeaStar Solutions Optimus 360 system has been designed to integrate seamlessly with Verado outboards.  A specially-designed SmartStick sensor and magnet fit on the existing Verado hydraulic steering cylinder for a clean, unobtrusive install. Importantly, the sensor assembly does not affect existing clearances for tilt and trim in the transom area.

Optimus 360 for Verado is available on new boats or can be retrofitted on existing vessels by select boat builders or an authorized Optimus installing dealer. Retrofit installation requires removes of the factory helm, hoses and power assist pump and replacement with the Optimus electronic helm, Optimus hydraulic pump and hoses, NMEA 2000 harnesses and CANtrak display. SeaStation and SeaWays systems require the additional installation of a GPS compass sensor and software update.
