You can also push down on the joystick to activate the horn.
The bow & stern thrusters can be operated individually and separately using the buttons below the joystick.
One or two anchors can be raised and lowered with specific buttons as well.
The highly-advanced DockControl software allows us to calibrate and configure the joystick so that its behavior is properly customized to the boat's equipment and your specific needs. The Twist joystick can also offer variable-speed, fully proportional throttle and thruster control, if you boat is equipped with a proportional thruster.
The TWIST is an incredibly easy to use 3-axis joystick that allows you to push the joystick in all directions (360°):
Forward, backwards, sideways, and diagonally and the boat will move in that direction! If you "twist" the joystick knob, then it will turn the boat sharply for tight quarter maneuvering as well.
All boats with electronic engine controls can be equipped with the Dockmate® system, regardless of the length or type of the boat. Our Twist transmitter, preferably worn with the included neck strap, is completely waterproof and floats. It is only the size of an iPhone and has a very simple, clear layout.
In our most simple configuration, the Twist transmitter sends a coded digital signal to the receiver which operates the engine(s) and horn. The system can be extended modularly to also control the bow thruster, stern thruster and windlass.
Operation is easy, accurate, safe and reliable, and can be done from any location aboard the boat. If the Twist transmitter somehow slips out of your hands, then all systems immediately drop to neutral. There is also an automatic shut off after 30 minutes of non-use.
The Dockmate® signal reaches up to 165 feet (50 meters). The receiver is mounted behind the dashboard and measures about 9.4 x 7.9 x 3.2.” Each Dockmate® system is unique and will not be disturbed by any other Dockmate®.
