But I'd like to keep my current autopilot, a raymarine ST6001.

The AP is currently interfaced with my chartplotters, (NEMA 2000?) but I just want it to work as a standalone with the new stuff. I use the autopilot in "point and click" mode only, I never use it to run routes and don't have any desire to do so, so I don't see why it needs to talk to the plotter.
Just curious, did you consider staying with Raymarine? That way your AP would likely interface easier.
