We have a Simrad NSE12 with a Simrad AP28 that seems to work well; I really only use it as a point and shoot (it has some pretty fancy tricks up its sleeve that I don't use) so can't comment on the finer points of its operation.

One thing that I really like about it, and a previous Furuno AP had the same feature, is a rotary knob for dialing in course changes. Each click is a one degree change which makes it intuitive and doesn't require being looked at.
