Like sailaway, the best price I found was here on sailnet. I just recently finished the installation of my S1 wheelpilot. Only been out with it once, and that was to swing the compass on it, and finish the calibrations. Well, was much to good a sailing day, and we ended up just sailing instead. Even without being fully tweaked, it maintained course well and performed properly. If you'll be using it alot in open waters, you might want to go with the G model (built in gyro).

Except for the rudder sensor, it was a snap to install.
