Default Auto pilot for new boat

I am having a 27 Onslow Bay being built now and I need an auto pilot. It will have twin 350 Verados. I have a Garmin 7610xsv and Simrad NSS12 evo2. Which auto pilot for the money? All I need is to go A to B.

The Simrad AP24 system would work. If you have the model number of your steering ram we can check to see what size pump you would need. Garmins GHP Reactor with smart pump is an awesome unit, but will be a jump in price from the AP24 system.

You will be happy with either the Garmin Reactor or with the Simrad AP24 series. I have used both and have many customers that are very happy. The cost can be kept down on the Garmin by not electing the Smartpump.
