[CA11] Autopilot for Formula Vdrive
I'm upgrading my electronics on my 2005 Formula 40PC, 496 MerCruiser Engines, VDrive (ZF transmissions) to the Axiom 12RV MFD

Would like to upgrade my boat with a Raymarine autopilot system, but do not know if I require a rudder reference sensor.

My steering system is as follows:
STEER CYLINDER BA1757TM HC5319 SeaStar Solutions

The pump selector suggests a Type 2 and ACU400.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum mglodowski,

A rudder reference transducer is supplied with each ACU-200 and ACU-400. The system will not require that a rudder reference transducer be installed to support operation. However, should performance be found to be unsatisfactory or if operating a slow / trolling speeds, then it is strongly recommended that the included rudder reference transducer be installed.
