Re: Bonus! found autopilot - need help
Looks like a Raymarine ram.. your Gamin plotter WILL NOT drive the autopilot.. you'll need a Raymarine Control head and controller of similar vintage, though some of the newer stuff may work with the older ram.
Once you have a fully functional autopilot you may be able to get it to track routes and waypoints from your plotter, but it will not 'be' the autopilot itself.
