Right again SD - SeaTalk, but with a paragraph about connecting to NMEA - which basically says, buy more Raymarine parts, then it will work with NMEA. A couple of pics of old an new Autohelm control boxes and a page from the manual of the new one.
ST3000 Wheel Drive Autopilot is the formal name.

|Idiens||My experience with Raymarine is that I would expect it to be SeaTalk only, but I'll come back on it.|

|sailingdog||On the more recent Autohelm units I've installed, the wind data was fed along a SeaTalk bus, and depending on the model, some had an NMEA 0183 connection for use with a GPS... but not all models had that.|

|Idiens||I found a chandler in the US which had a new Autohelm 3000, so bought it. Unlike my old one, the new one does not have a wind vane connection, it uses the Raymarine NMEA connection to a masthead wind sensor. The motor and the engagement lever are the same on both models. There might be some lurking around still.|

Autohelm 3000 parts
I am in need of the splined clutch lever for an older Nautech Autohelm 3000.
Does anyone have parts for these units?
