Default Which Autopilot?

In the process of rerigging my boat with a 2015 Suzuki 300 that I'm buying from a friend. I installed the Raymarine Axiom GPS and radar last year, and figure I'll add autopilot while installing the new engine. Not sure which one to go with. Any advice is appreciated. Thx.

I like my Raymarine EV150 AP networked to the a128/a78

Easy to install yourself. Easy to use. Accurate

I suggest going with a Raymarine pilot too. The EV150 would be perfect.

I would stay with he Raymarine Pilot as you would get full functionality with full MFD integration. If you need any assistance setting his up or help with the configuration of the engines let us know. We are a phone call away and will assist you in anyway possible.

I'm in the market for an auto pilot as well. A marine electronics installer from the keys that I spoke to said the Garmin AP's had had problems. He was a big fan of Simrad. I've got Garmin 7212 plotters and would be inclined to stay with one brand, but now I'm a little gun shy. CME, do you mind if I ask why you like the Garmin so well?

Best,
Charlie
