Default AutoPilot for Mercury Verado

I just bought a new rig at the Minneapolis boat show, 22' Lund Baron with a 275 Verado/9.9 kicker. I'd like to add a AutoPilot. I understand that my choices will slim due to the power steering on Verado. Have any of you guys added a Autopilot? What were the costs? How SLOW can you troll and still keep the Autopilot engaged ? Any info is helpful, thanks.......Doug...........Western Lake Superior ;?

Welcome aboard & congrats on the new boat

You will need an A/P that does not have rudder feedback ( a big plus). Choices are TR-1, Simrad, and Raymarine. Use the search function (blue bar top left of each page). There has been alot of discussion about A/P's lately

The TR-1 company (Nautimatic) started out making just kicker autopilots so you may want to call and ask them about your configuration. They are also the only pilot certified by Mercury for the Verado. Visit them at www.tr1autopilots.com. Simrad is also a good pilot if you want to spend less, but at a dead troll - the TR-1 is the best....
