Need input on SIMRAD Autopilots
We installed*the *AP24 2 years ago and have no complaints.* We have 2 control heads with one in the PH and the other on the Fly-bridge.* It's easy to install and the connectors are small diameter so there are no large holes to drill.*We only use it to steer the boat.**
All the big manufacturers are now NMEA 2000 and have their own proprietary cables which are non-standard.* Simnet (Simrad) will accept NMEA 183 but you have to buy an AT-10 Converter cable.* It was $110 and does one input.**The AT-10 will convert 183 to 2000 or vise versa.* I found this was not unique to Simrad.* The AP24 has more capabilities than we'll every use.
When we were putting the system together and during the installation, I called Simrad several times and always got the information and help I needed.*
