Sometimes we celebrate old-school technology here on TF a bit too much. I am guilty of this myself, but I have to interject here that based on our experience, not all electronic controls suck.

We have Glendinning electronic controls. Our power is two Suzuki 60 hp outboards.

Suzuki does not make dual helm controls for their 60's, hence we had to go with non-Suzuki controls, and Glendinning fit the bill.

We are very happy with the Glendinning electronic controls. No problems. Much less maintenance, too, than the all-cable systems we have had in the past.

And if we ever decide to sell our boat, we would be mystified by any buyer who demanded that we "immediately knock the price of replacement (of the electronic controls)" off the price.

Cheers,
