No Question that the Simrad TP30 (now the TP32) is much stronger and faster than the comparable Autohelm unit. I have had both, and agree 100% that
1- they are not waterproof.
2- You do want a bigger unit than they claim.
3- You must balance the boat for them to work well.
4- They will eventually burn/wear out; sooner than you expect.
