....but that doesn't mean it won't work..after all the steering ram isn't proprietary...it just takes steering fluid pushed somehow into it.
after looking up the install manual...it does look like Garmin has a proprietary built in rudder feedback on it's pump...I have no idea how it works or whether a separate feedback could be adapted. It's not really the pump that's different...it's the integrated feedback so you don't have to run another wire...convenient unless you have a perfectly good pump sized correctly for your ram and now they make you buy a new pump unless you and/or friends get into electronic signals engineering and splice in the old rudder feedback too.
