I replaced my tiller with a wheel. It came with an ST4000 autopilot.
It makes a teeth grinding noise and seems to catch with a loud crack. I've read on another thread about the solution.
I think I can buy another wheel drive for a good price but I wonder if it is worth patching this unit?
The display does not read accurately and that would have to be another part I would look for.
We are two years away from sailing away. I just need something to hold a course for brief breaks for my coastal sailing now.
I'm also confused as to what to replace it with if I decided to throw it all out and how much it would cost me.
Budget is tight as I am doing more structural refitting now on the boat--next up is the standing rigging.
