My Raymarine wheelpilot ST-1 with has a gybe inhibit feature that defaults to on. It's controlled by a parameter called GYBESTOP in the user calibration settings.

The gybe inhibit feature prevents the autotack from turning your stern across the wind. It only works if you've got a wind-instrument feed to the autopilot.
