Hi, the control head on my autopilot is suffering from age. Looking to replace it. Have been recommended NAC-2 pack, but this is for boats motorboats up to 35 foot. I have a bavaria 38 sailboat. Advice?
Dear Belladonna,

Many thanks for your post.

The NAC-2 is a Simrad pilot, I am unable to advise on this as I am not familiar with the Simrad range.

For the Raymarine pilot I would recommend our EV200 pilot for your vessel, you can learn more about the Evolution pilot range here.

Have you got a mechanical linear drive installed? If it is still in good shape, you could get this serviced and still use it.

Many Thanks
Hi Louise, Thanks for your reply. i am hoping to just replace the display/control head. What is my best option for this?
Dear Belladonna,

Thank you for your post.

There is no replacement for the ST5000+, the brains are in the control head.You will need to purchase a new pilot consisting of compass, course computer and control head.

As I mentioned the EV200 is the most suited to your vessel.

Many Thanks
Ok, thanks. looking at that now.
You're welcome.
