iST Intelligent Shift & Throttle

Introducing Honda Marine’s new iST Intelligent Shift & Throttle

Introducing the new Honda Intelligent Shift and Throttle (iST). Superb control and easy installation are hallmarks of Honda’s new command and control system. iST provides all the features boaters are looking for, including:
  • Control of up to 4 engines and 2 control stations
  • Effortless shift and throttle control
  • Fine tuning of throttle settings at any speed
  • Enhanced docking and slow speed control
  • User-programmable system defaults
  • Simple, easy to understand user interface

Multi-Engine Applications

For multi-engine installations, the system provides one switch trim control on the throttle handle, trimming all engines simultaneously. Individual trim switches allow for fine tuning each engine’s trim position. The system also provides engine speed synchronization, and single handle control of all engines while synchronized.

Simple Installation

Honda has also made iST easy to install. No programming or special tools - just connect one communication cable between the engine and the helm mounted control head, and you’re done. Adding a second station can be done just as easily. Simply install the second control head and connect cable to the existing system.
