Simrad to 10 or Raymarine st2000

I will be replacing the autohelm on my O'day 27 some time soon and am trying to decide between simrad and raymarine. The old tiller pilot is a raymarine ah800 and has not worked since I purchased the boat. So the boat may already be set up for the raymarine st2000. Any one have any thoughts.

Thanks
Sprega

I can't compare but had good results with an ST2000 on a Newport 30.

Re: Simrad to 10 or Raymarine st2000

When my Simrad failed for the last time, I bought a Raymarine ST2000 and its worked perfectly.

The current models of the two brands are interchangeable accept for the electrical plug and the Raymarine plug is excellent.

The display on the Raymarine is great, their old cable remote would be nice, I can't justify the newer cordless remote.

I upgraded from an old AH1000 to the ST2000+ on my Pearson 30. I had to drill a new hole to mount the body of the tiller pilot. The newer one is longer than my old one. I have been very pleased with it.
