I think I see your point, you can't do the +/- course headings we all know and love from our ST60+ days with a simple key press on the e7d MFD because you don't have a SPX type auto pilot.
Not because it won't, but because your AP is outdated.
There is a solution that won't break the bank - install (for about 530 bucks) a A70 (i70) auto pilot control head.
I mean, would you not want a backup to the MFD?

My setup is a single i70, the e7d, and a70 - I can not imagine not having redundancy.
