Re: st1000 autopilot remote by smart marine

If you get stuck I'll be able to help you out but there will of course be a postage cost from Australia. The smart marine was copied from my early remotes so I have some of those type of fobs still.

Re: st1000 autopilot remote by smart marine

Not quite an exact copy of my AP-WRC1 although the last time I saw one on EBay it looked like my manual had been copied as well. They say imitation is the best form of flattery ;-)

Re: Raymarine ST1000 vs. ST2000 tiller pilot

The ST2000 will turn the tiller or wheel from lock to lock faster than the ST1000 also.
Don't forget to consider a remote control for your autopilot if you're single handing.

Re: Autopilot Wireless Remote Control

No, I'm afraid not as the Autohelm 3000 does not have Seatalk.
The ST3000 will work however - is it definitely an Autohelm 3000 you have?
