Re: Why is it so hard to find information about installing a Autopilot?

It really needs to be somewhat of a custom installation. Most boats are very different in the area of the rudder post and quadrant. Having some past experience greatly helps. But getting everything from one manufacturers will prove difficult.

My system has a Simrad drive, Raymarine rudder angle sensor and a Garmin control head. Not sure of the manufacturer of the steering arm.
