Mine is hydraulic steering by Wagner. When I read the book on the WP5000 installation, it claimed it shouldn't be used on hydraulic steering systems. I have no idea how long this has been installed, but with the gain set at max, it works fine in normal conditions. It can't keep up in following seas, so I hand steer a much straighter course, but that's probably a function of my square transom and small rudders.
