Raymarine Autohelm & Solar Panel

We want to install a autohelm in our 46' sloop. We already have a Raymarine C70 for GPS. Thoughts on sticking with same mfg for autohelm or alternative recommendations on mfg & type? Planning to do 1 to 2 week ocean passages.

Seocn d question is that we saw a previous thread re solar panels. Are they worth it? If so, recommended mfg and size please. We would be running a few cabin lights, nav equipment, running lights and the autohelm noted above. Would be charging 4 banks of 105 or possible dedicated bank.

Thanks much.
