v1.13 Dec 2015
  • Corrects a communications issue on STng when a Mercury Gateway is also connected onto the same bus for Engine Data onto an MFD. This could cause the Evolution Pilot to report the error message "Drive Stopped" or "No Pilot"
 
v1.12 July 2015
  • The new software rectifies a steering performance issue where some sail boat users have experienced degraded steering performance in Auto mode while sailing up or down wind in gusty medium to heavy wind and sea conditions. The degraded performance is more prone to occur if sailing with a large amount of standing helm due to increasing weather helm.

    The software change only effects Pilots set to Drive Type Linear or Rotary (mechanical drive units).
