Default Need A/B Selector Switch

Hello all,
I am in need of a A/B Selector Switch. I need to mount it on my dash. I am looking for a small dial switch. I plan to hook my autopilot up to each of my Chartplotters. Position A for one and position B for the other. I could do this with a rocker switch, but I want a small dial instead. It will take up less space, and also, less chance of accidently switching it while running. Does anyone know where I can find one. This will be used on a center console boat, so waterproofing is needed.
Thanks,
Jim

just out of curiousity, why? they both will send the same data to the CP, just for backup?

Yes, just for backup.

This switch must have 6 prongs. 2 to go to the autopilot, 2 to come from the first charterplotter, and 2 to come from the second chartplotter.

Thanks,
Jim

What autopilot? I know the TR1 has inputs for two different GPS signals and you can switch between the two yours might have this feature built in too.

I believe my unit does have this. It is a Raymarine ST6002. Jim from BOE has been talking me through it. He has been a great help.
