Do you need the raymarine smartpilot control head?
 
Another novice question from me....

You can buy the Smartpilot X-5 core pack without the control head...but it isn't clear to me from my research whether you can opeate it without the control head. Is it essential..is it indeed useful? :confused:

The control head provides the input interface to the smart pilot so it is necessary unless chart plotter serves that role.
