Default Simrad NSS Evo2 versus AP24 auto-pilot

The NSS Evo2 comes with auto-pilot capability. Does the AP24 head unit give additional auto-pilot capability?

It gives dedicated 1 and 10 degrees turn buttons, you can turn while in fishing patterns and it shows the distance to the next turn when running fishing patterns.

Abbor thanks, but I really want to understand this better so I will re-phrase. What AP capability does the Evo2 provide and what capability does the AP24 provide. I am trying to determine if there is an advantage to having both or if it's just redundant.

Also..the AP24 has been replaced by the AP44.

And the control knob on the AP44 is very useful.

All of these options are in conjunction with a AC12/42 OR NAC unit, the ap24, ap44, and evo2 display are all means by which you control the ac/nac unit
