IntellisteerHaving to constantly steer a kicker or wheel for course adjustments while trolling prevents boaters from fully enjoying time on the water. Intellisteer wireless steering packages from Canada Metal (Pacific) put steering control into a handheld pendant. Intellisteer offers push-button steering at trolling speeds for freedom while fishing or cruising. Designed for do-it-yourself installation, the handheld unit and receiver can be paired in the field from over one million control codes to enhance security. The receiver/motor controller has a motor drive capability up to 25A, overload protection and reverse polarity protection.

The ergonomic, water-resistant, wireless pendant with lanyard offers simple one-handed operation for steering from anywhere aboard. To preserve battery life, it automatically turns off if not used for 30 minutes. A range of Intellisteer models support a wide variety of steering systems. For boats already fitted with autopilots, the Intellisteer Standalone System provides a simple and cost-effective wireless steering upgrade. It is designed to be wired between a course computer and autopilot drive. When the user provides steering input with the handheld pendant, it overrides the autopilot and activates wireless jog steering control from anywhere onboard. When there is no wireless steering input from the user, control is returned to the autopilot, which then operates normally.

There are also several Intellisteer options for boats which do not have an autopilot, depending on the steering type. The Type R System controls a kicker motor directly. It comes with a remote drive unit, wireless system, and a steering cable. An outboard cable-steering connection kit is required.

The Type S and T Systems fit behind the dash, replacing the existing helm on cable-steered boats that have a dash-mounted wheel. Type S works on straight shaft helms; Type T on those with tilt function. Both incorporate a rotary drive system, and feature an electronic clutch that disengages for manual steering. Each draws 1.25A under normal operation and offers safety override technology.


For boats with hydraulic steering, the Type H System adds push-button control. It features an Octopus hydraulic pump and connects to all popular hydraulic steering systems. Suitable for cylinders up to 10ci, this Intellisteer kit includes the required hydraulic hoses and fittings and typically draws 4-6A. Larger pumps are available for boats with bigger steering cylinders.
