I found a person with an Autohelm ST6000 but the this a different model and the electronics are quite different. My control unit attaches by velcro pads and has a fixed cable connecting it to the computer and flux compass.

My email address is pinskymr@upmc.edu

ebay has autohelm6000 parts for sale all the time! try both the .com and .co.uk

Also I found this in a seperate thread (1year old) but maybe worth a shot!
