OK! So after discussions with Raymarine Tech Support I learned that the "autopilot" function in the MFD only works with their Evolution autopilots. Which doesn't mean that my autopilot can't follow...

Figured I'd add the pic of the radar install that I finished yesterday. Had to also replace the mount because the radome sits lower than the open array. Of course there's no way that the two mounts...

Ummm. Did anyone else just notice that I connected the red to the negative and the black to the positive? Maybe I should have tested that before I posted that! Idiot.

Ah yes. The PO kept an inventory too, but it was simply a list of things (like "filters") but no model numbers or location. But more importantly there is no log of maintenance so I don't know when...

This one is the former. It has no Fishfinder capability. Just depth. It sends it over nmea 0183 to the ST60 Depth display. that display is powered independently. The MFD would not be left on.
