Evinrude’s iSteer and iTrim are underrated systems that are available on all G2 outboards from 115 H.O. to 300 HP including the recently launched 115 H.O., 140 HP and 150 HP engines.
iSteer has two parts: a fully integrated hydraulic steering system (no messy cables) and a power steering assist pump that has three settings which adjust automatically while underway.
The integration of hydraulic steering into the power steering swivel bracket eliminates all hook ups and wires all together. This makes climbing around the transom area easier and safer.
As the speed of the boat changes it can become more difficult to steer. With iSteer, the power steering pump can be set to three different levels in order to tailor to the conditions.
Maximum assist gives drivers the least steering resistance while minimum assist will provide more feel from the water. With three levels (minimum, medium and maximum), there is an appropriate level for all types of driving.
iTrim automatically keeps your outboard at the optimal trim level no matter what speed. This feature makes boating easier and more enjoyable for both new and seasoned captains.
When underway, while manoeuvring through tight turns and big offshore water, Evinrude’s iSteer and iTrim adjusts automatically to make controlling the boat effortless.
Both iSteer and iTrim do not require any aftermarket parts, it is an advantage straight from the factory.
Allison Blair, an Evinrude G2 Owner said, "Having iSteer makes it a dream to drive. There are actually three different levels so you can pick how easy you want it to be. So, I’m not sure why you would ever own a boat that didn’t have power steering!"
"The power steering was a big factor for our purchase," said Ryan Brown, owner of a G2 E-TEC "We are doing a lot of turns, we are not just doing straight lines all the time. And I wanted something my wife could drive with ease."
