RE: Raymarine Smart Pilot S3G
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Stephen,

General comment: It will not only be necessary to add an ACU-400, but it will also be necessary to add an Evolution EV-1 Sensor Core and an Evolution Autopilot Control Head to the system. These have been bundled into the package T70162 EV-400 Power (includes ACU-400, p70RS, EV-1 Sensor Core, and the SeaTalkng networking components to interface these items to one another. An E22158 SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter Kit will be used to interface the currently installed SeaTalk bus to the SeaTalkng network. It is the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter's function to permit the C-Series Classic MFD(s) and other compatible devices having a SeaTalk communications interface to communicate with devices on the SeaTalkng backbone (ex. an Evolution autopilot, etc.). The SeaTalk bus will need to be disconnected from its present source of power, as it will instead be powered by the SeaTalkng backbone via the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter.

Q1. Can anyone confirm that the existering steering pump etc will work with the evolution computer.?
A1. Raymarine autopilot actuators (drive units) designed for use with Raymarine autopilots may be retained for use with an Evolution autopilot system.

Q2. Can I use the existing wiring to the control head on the flybridge if I use an adapter.?
A2. The p70RS Autopilot Control Head should be installed in place of the autopilot control head located at the lower helm station. An Evolution Autopilot Control Head must be present within the system unless the system includes an a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD. However, the ST6002 Autopilot Control Head on the flybridge may be retained for use on the flybridge. Please see the opening comment regarding the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter.

Should you need onboard assistance with the installation, then it is recommended that a Certified Raymarine Installer be contacted.
