Now, if you are following a route and you want to change one leg because, say, a log is in your path, twist the stick until you are around the obstacle, and then let it go. The autopilot recalculates your route and gets you back on course automatically. If you like, you can twist the stick again, jog around the obstacle and put her back on course yourself; the autopilot will once again resume its route. As long as you are providing input to the joystick or helm, the autopilot will stand down. When you cease input, the autopilot will accept the last bearing as its course. In an emergency maneuver, direct joystick or helm input overrides the autopilot immediately and eliminates the need to waste precious seconds reaching over to suspend navigation before taking the helm.
