Is Simrad Still in Business?

I have a couple of friends in Tahiti who have a failed Simrad autopilot. All of their contact information for Simrad does not work, emails get kicked back and phones don't work. Anyone have any knowledge of the status of Simrad and replacement parts?

Thanks,

Scott

Head office is in Norway IIRC and FWIW, the Aussie Navico agents sourced for me some obsolete manuals that were not not available on the Simrad website. These were hard copy only and had been archived in Norway.

I hope you get similar good service from them as I did .
