ST4000 autohelm to Garmin echo50s

Got it all wired in today and I need some help.
I have an older model Autohelm St4000 and a new Echo50s Garmin.\I have the blue wire from the control head going to the blue wire on the Garmin I have the red wire to the inst switch and a common ground to the batt.
I have the baud rate set to 4800.
Here goes the dumbest question I have asked.

How do I get it to steer the boat? The st400 when in gauged will respond to the control head. How do I get it to steer a course?

Thanks so much for your help. one other question. IO have a transducer at the top of my mast with App and True Wind / Wind Speed, I have a gauge that I want to use in one location but I want the information to go into the Garmin as well.It will take the information acording to the instuructions I just dont know how to get all of the inputs in the one last remaining brown wire on the garmin?


Thanks again for your help
