Once on the contour however, it held pretty well. We had only two lines out. I always go into the wind and use the MK cruise control. If the contours have a lot of tight, twisty turns I'll use auto pilot instead of FTC, which gives you the option to vary your course from the existing contours by using the purple line. We also trolled cranks using the main motor for propulsion and FTC and cruise control for steering. It kept us right on the contour.
I appreciate your feedback. Your experience gives me added confidence to purchase the Humminbird / Terrova combo.
