new auto pilot system

Postby Burns Money » July 11th, 2019, 2:58 pm

Hello Everyone, We have just purchased a 2000 Carver 404, and will upgrading the original chart plotter and are considering adding an auto pilot as well. Would really appreciate advice on which auto pilot to go with. We will be doing all of our boating between Lake Simcoe, and Georgian Bay. We can expect 5 foot waves at times, but usually we are in fairly calm water. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

We recently installed the Raymarine EV1 on my 2003 356. The boat had existing Raymarine equipment hence the reason for my choice. We have been using it on our trip up and down Lake Michigan and around Green Bay and have been very satisfied. Nice to let someone else steer the course.
Thank you for the help!

What system and brand do you currently have and what plotter are you considering installing?
