Radio navigation interface - Iris 1 - 05-26-16 11:32 AM

Hi, I have an Autohelm 800 tiller pilot and have recently installed a Lowrance Elite 5 GPS/ Depth Sounder. How can I configure these two instruments so that the Autohelm will take instruction from the GPS?
Thanks, Iris 1

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Iris,

The AH800 is no longer supported. That said, the AH800 was designed to be a stand-alone autopilot. Being a stand-alone design, it lacked the SeaTalk and/or NMEA 0183 communications interfaces would permit later autopilot designs to be interfaced the GPS/chartplotting systems.
