[CA] [CA11] Quantum 2 Radar/AxiomPro/Older SG3 Raymarine Autopilo

[CA11] Quantum 2 Radar/AxiomPro/Older SG3 Raymarine Autopilo

I have purchased a new system consisting of the following:
E70482 (Axiom Pro 12)
E70327 (RS150 GPS antenna)
T70417 (Quantum Q24D)
3x E70327 (i70 displays)
E22078 (Wind transducer)
E70010 (ITC-5)
E26008 (P79 Speed tranducer)
Assorted backbone, 5 way connectors, ST1 to STNG adaptor, etc.

I am trying to integrate this system with an existing (installed) 2008 vintage Raymarine autopilot (with rudder position transducer) which I believe is an SG3 course computer. Additionally I have an existing 2008 Ray218E VHF (NMEA 0183) and have purchased a Vesper XB-8000 AIS.

Reading the installation instructions for the Quantum radar I learned that the Doppler and MARPA functionality requires an EV-1/2 and went down that rabbit [censored] in the forum (thank you for the great information). I've since learned that the AR200 may be a better option than the EV-1 or EV-2 however I've also learned that more than 1 course computer violates the ST to STNG converter I think I require to get my raymarine autopilot to integrate with my MFD/network.

So my question is the following:

1: In order for me to utilize the new Quantum2 functionality for my proposed set up, do I need to purchase a new evolution autopilot system?
2: If not, knowing the AR200 will serve as the proper 10Hz course input for doppler/MARPA functionality, what issues should I expect and try to solve for when trying to integrate my older raymarine autopilot with the new systems I have purchased?

thank you in advance. This forum is fantastic and a huge component of my decision to replace my existing Raymarine with more Raymarine.
