Advise on what autopiolot to buy

Recommended Posts

I have a 1992 Bayliner Trophy hardtop 4.3 alpha.hydro steering. I would like a SIMPLE autopilot that I could hit a button and be able to tend to rods.

Careful, doesn't work with the Elite Ti of any generation. Don't confuse capability to run motor guide electric trolling motors with the outboard pilot. It will work with HDS gen 2 and all later HDS models.

if you already have hydraulic steering you are in great shape.  You can buy any system from the big names...Raymarine, Garmin, Simrad...etc.  Im partial to the Garmin systems and their shadow drive hydraulic pump. I think its smoother and has better software than my Raymarine Evolution.  When i originally installed autopilot on my boat I had cable steering So i went with a Raymarine Evolution Sport Pilot system.  Two years ago I switched to hydraulic steering so I was kind of forced to stick with a Raymarine pump to use with my Raymarine CPU and control head. 

 

But If i was starting from scratch I would try to pair your autopilot system with whatever type of sonar you are running.  It makes integration of the autopilot into the chart plotter much easier.  However there are ways to working around non matching brands.  For example..I have my Raymarine Evolution autopilot integrated with my Garmin chart plotter.
