Re: Autopilot Install

This sounds like a Spx5 wheel drive installation in which case you are going to need to run a cable to your pedestal anyway to power the drive unit from the control head. The convenience of having everything together and the fact that you need to run a cable anyway make this option far more attractive in my opinion and probably accounts for this being almost the only way it's done.
