Find out what interface your auto helm supports, (likely NEMA). Most GPSs sold nowadays will offer various communication interfaces, just make sure that the GPS you choose can "talk" to your autopilot. The wiring is simple enough, and the GPS and the autopilot documentation should have a wiring diagram for just that purpose.

It's an easy thing to set up.
