Simrad autopilot help
Goodmorning to everyone from germany
I have a simrad nss7 on my boat and i wanted to install the ap24 autopilot.
I have hydraulic steering system installed.
Can anyone tell me which components do i need for the autopilot except the ap24 unit?

Actually AP24 is the only thing you don't necessarily need. AP24 is the control panel, the autopilot can be operated and commissioned from NSS7.

You need:
RC42N compass
AC12N autopilot computer
RPU80 pump
NMEA 2000 starter kit

All the above is available as a kit from some dealers (BOE Marine is one)

In case you buy from an European dealer make sure you get the N versions of the compass and the computer. If they don't find them listed in the Simrad catalogue, they are listed in the B&G catalogue (as the Triton pilot)

If you have first generation NSS I would recommend the small OP10 control panel, OP comes very handy with NSS Evo2 as well.

In addition you need two T-pieces, two short hydraulic hoses and probably some adapters as well.
