Default RE: Chart Overlay / Autopilots

There is a lot of discussion on whether chart overlay is worth it. I find it confusing alot of the time and if you are not running a large screen it get even more cluttered. If you buy a unit that has the capabilty to have chart overlay, You can turn the option on or off. But as mentioned earlier you have to have some devise to give the CP a heading input via heading sensor or from a AP. These can be added later. If you are going to buy an AP, concider one that have heading output and you will not have to buy a heading sensor. Simrad, & TR1 both have these out puts. I think the new furuno has it, but not sure. And I will take the opprotunity to say I think the TR1 is a great choice, especially if you are running outboards.
Good Luck
