Raymarine 6001+ smartpilot would work well - tested and proven unit...

A TR-1 would be better in that it has no rudder feedback unit to worry about, but would be substantially more $$$

they ALL connect to the NEMA output of your GPS that sends info to the autopilit - couple wires, that's all....

We have had TR-1's now on two boats and they are awesome. We got tired of replacing rudder feedbacks on the simrads. IMO you cannot go wrong with the TR-1. Good Luck.
