You Should Know

  • Since HelmCommander does not alter any device hardware or software, not all functions will perform as expected.  For instance, the Ulterra has a stow/deploy feature that will not be available on the Lowrance and Garmin chart plotters.  These chart plotters do not have software for the stow/deploy feature.  There will be other minor features that will be unavailable beyond our control.
  • Future software updates to chart plotters and trolling motors may incapacitate HelmCommander.  These updates may be irreversible.  We will try our best to validate updates as they are issued.  Check here before applying them.
  • We will have updates for HelmCommander to push new features and fixes periodically.
  • HelmCommander uses very little power but WILL drain your battery in storage.  You should install a switch.
