Default Simrad Virtual Feedback AP system

Anyone using one of these systems?
Thinking of upgrading my AP11 and mine presently has a linear feed back, similar in function to a rudder feedback.

I have the AP26 and the virtual feedback works great.

I upgraded from an AP-12H to an AP-16V. Did the original AP-12H installation myself, so no problem with going to the AP16. The virtual feedback works fine, once the unit is set up properly for your vessel. I had some minor issues, and had Simrad tech support on the cell phone while underway - very helpful.

Ran 75nm from the Norfolk Canyon to Little Creek on Sunday, in a quartering sea, and never more than 200feet off the track line. Usually within 50feet.

I have the AP25 in a twin diesel-powered boat with jackshafts and outdrives. The virtual feedback system has now worked flawlessly for 18 months (300 engine hours) and eliminated the most fragile part of the AP system. I could not have been happier.
