The S1 is a lot more reliable than the belt-driven ST3000 it replaced. Since I mostly single-hand with company, it comes in real handy to have it to take the helm while I trim sails or other duty. It integrates with my Raymarine GPS/plotter, which also lets me set the most direct course over a long haul. The installation of the RPS wasn't a big deal. There was a support for the steering system nearby to which the stationery component was mounted. We're pleased.
