Venture Marine has been shipping them on their 34. You might give them a call.

We ahve installed about 6 in the last 6 months and all the customers love them.They have real good customer support. They are higher in price than a Simrad a round 1000.00. The main difference is there is no rudder feedback and no display.

I have been doing some research on the TR-1 and everyone gives it great reviews. A lot of your higher-end center consoles are installing them at the factory. I have heard that installing them is not hard, but the setup procedures are very long.

Check the Florida Sportsman forum...several guys are using them over there.

I have had a TR-1 Nautamatic autopilot on my boat for two years. I really like it. I have not had any problems with it. I also have their TR-1 Gold autopilot on my 9.9 Yamaha. I've had it for three years without problems. I had one of their first TR-1's too. It's still running on a friends boat. And as for the setup being very long, It was alot easier than the Simrad I use to have. And it works a lot better. I was done in less than 30 minutes. I called their tech support, and they walked me through it. They were great. I have several friends that have them also. None of us can imagine fishing without one anymore. I'm not exhausted when I get home from fishing, because I let the autopilot do the work.
