Default Sp110 Autopilot Settings

I recently installed my unit on my aluminum custom catamaran (29' loa with bracket). I have a single steering cylinder with a tie bar connecting the twin DF250's. When I first installed the unit I was very disappointed as it was basically useless with the default settings. A couple weeks back I took a vacation day and was able to call their autopilot guy while on the water changing settings and seeing the effect. It took 4 calls and we were running out of time but the unit started to perform properly. I was testing it with a 2' GOM quartering chop and got it to run pretty true. I have no autopilot experience on a catamaran and don't know if my expectations are realistic or not, as i know cats like to walk side to side versus a mono hull. While setting it up, make sure to do it in AUTO before beginning to try the GPS functionality. The settings ended up a long way from where we started. I ended up making my hoses from the Teleflex hard tubing HF6007 kit. Supposedly, this hose has a slightly smaller ID which may or may not affect settings, I don't know? I may tweak it as I run it more, i.e. increasing the R and the parameter "1" settings. We ended up on the following:
R-20
Parameter Settings:
1-16
2-07
3-01
4-50
5-1.0
rf-0
7-05
8-03
A-07
b-00
C-00
d-00
E-00
F-15
G-08
I hope this helps someone, please let me know what settings work for others. Good luck.
