EVINRUDE’S iSteer and iTrim are underrated systems available on all G2 outboards from 115-300hp including the recently launched 115H.O, 140hp and 150hp engines.
iSteer has two parts: a fully integrated hydraulic steering system (no messy cables) and a power steering assist pump with three settings that adjust automatically while under way. The integration of hydraulic steering into the power steering swivel bracket eliminates all hook-ups and wires altogether. 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 assistance 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 under way 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.
Evinrude G2 owner Allison Blair 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,” she said. “So, I’m not sure why you would ever own a boat that didn’t have power steering!”
Fellow E-TEC owner Ryan Brown said, “The power steering was a big factor for our purchase. 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.”
