Not sure what the availability is for the ST6002 control head (try ebay), but should plug right into an existing SeaTalk network.

I went with a handheld remote instead of a second head...


Way more versatile and found it on ebay for 1/2 the price of a second head.


Would love a second head for backup...but this is good enough and worked great for the last 6000 miles.


And I use it a lot..have to change the batteries in it several times a trip to Fl and back....

Yup....I have one of those and it works great. It stopped working on me a few weeks back, but I got it going again (not batteries....Internal corrosion on one of the microswitches). Got me thinking about a permanent head unit on the bridge since I've become so dependent on it (as you likely know!)
