st1000 autopilot remote by smart marine

I saw that a dealer in So. America is selling on e-bay this remote. Does anyone have any experience with this unit and/or seller.

Re: st1000 autopilot remote by smart marine

I also purchased one and very pleased but I do wish there were some minor changes which I made myself. First the cabling wire is so tiny that it's hard to strip and attach. I used a heavier wire. So I would have another remote I ordered one on Ebay for $7 which worked fine with the unit.

I didn't have any problem with the cable, in fact I liked it was thin because it was easy to run. About the remote you bought, did you have to code it? It's my understanding the remotes comes coded so your neighbour can't control your boat... could you share some info about this ?

Yes, I say the cable was still too thin; I mean too small of gauge wire that was not stranded. About the remote, look for the four channel on EBay. It looks the same as the one you receive with the kit. Take the remote apart and look on the back side and you'll see where 2 jumpers needs to be added on the new remote. You'll need to be fairly good at soldering to do the job but once done it will work just fine.

Re: st1000 autopilot remote by smart marine

So these remotes are coded, excellent !
I have to say I love this product, it is not fancy as the Raymarine S100, but it hasn't all it's problems.

In few words, the best remote control you can buy for St1000/St2000. The only problem is you have to be lucky or monitor ebay they sell it pretty fast, good for Smart Marine!

Re: st1000 autopilot remote by smart marine

Gentlemen - I'm looking for more information on this unit as I am in the market for a decent and low-priced autopilot for my Islander Bahama 30 - with a wheel.

Googling SmartMarine ST100 did not produce the reults I expected - can you provide any additional details please....

Thank you
Eric

Eric,
Smart Marine makes a remote control for Raymarine ST1000+ and ST2000+.
It is not an autopilot itself, it is the remote control (wireless).

Not quite an exact copy of my AP-WRC1 although the last time I saw one on EBay it looked like my manual had been copied as well. They say imitation is the best form of flattery ;-)
