Raymarine Smartpilot

I have a 30 foot boat with a wheel. Is raymarine SmartPilot X-5 the only option I have? What comes in the SmartPilot X-5 ? Does it come with the whole wheel or just that disk that I attach to my current wheel? I have an old boat and don't have many electronics in it, I don't have an electronics console, can I still use this?

I have never used one of these, nor seen one, any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

Yeah, it is pretty much your only option nowadays. The disc attaches to your wheel. Don't need an electronics console.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
