At least that might give you a good search term.

I think XS Bank here posted about it (may be able to search his posts).
Thanks.

There are at least two ways to do this: A drive with a sprocket is placed on the chain somewhere (or a chain added in the cable that the sprocket can drive), or a tiller arm is added to the rudder post so you can use a linear drive (can be electric or hydraulic). Sometimes the linear drive can be added on to the existing steering quadrant but often not.

Garmin can use any pump as long as it has the capacity to move the ram. You do lose some features. After the pump every AP is pretty much vendor specific including in many cases updating the AP software which might require a specific vendor’s MFD.

This is something I didn't realize when I was AP shopping. I read that the (newer generation) Garmin AP needed to use the proprietary Garmin (smart?) pump, so I decided to go another way. But I later learned here, from HopCar I think, that you actually can use other pumps, but as you say they just don't do everything. I guess for me that still kinda feels like it "needs" their proprietary pump, but still, I didn't even realize there was any other option than their pump at the time.
