You say that the AP20 is tracking routes and waypoints precisely. Are you saying that the NSS Evo2 is sending waypoints to the AP20 and controlling steering? Or, are you enterting waypoints directly into the AP20?

The AP 20 tracks the routes/waypoints received from the NSS EVO2. As it should be.

No doubt, then, that it is user error but I have not been able to get get my NSS 12 evo2 to accept routes. I contacted Simrad tech support and was told that it could not be done but, yet, you have been successful in getting the NSS to control the autopilot. What do I need to do to make this happen? A setting?

The NSS Evo2 doesn't control the AP20, it only submits the actual waypoints (single or one after the other from a route) via NMEA0183 to the network where the AP20 does receive them. So definetly no bidirectional communication between both units

So, does that mean a waypoint can be fixed on the NSS, then sent to the AP20 as a waypoint to which it will steer to?

Yes, if you define a waypoint and start "go to" the AP20 will receive this waypoint and track it. But you need the Simrad Video/NMEA0183 cable to send/receive NMEA0183 information from/to the NSS Evo2.
Also the Baud rate is allowed to be maximal 4,800 Baud!
