Re: Can you identify this part?

It's obviously a Raytheon whatsit. Dismount it and take the model and serial numbers off the back.

The many buttons are also a clue as to its purpose. Sorry, but i can't make them out enough to decipher its purpose. The small print in the lower right of the screen may tell you what it is, as well. I suspect a gps, but am not sure.

It's a GPS unit.

Looks like a Loran or GPS; google Raymarine 575 or 398.

Looks a lot like the GPS I had. Old school but nice readout etc.

Well, that was quick to spot!! Thank you very much for your help.
Do you think that such an old piece of hardware can be connected to a modern tiller autopilot like a simrad tp22or a raymarine 2000?
Cheers

Yes, it most likely has an NMEA0183 output. However, the the TP32 is N2K only (simnet ), so you'd need to buy an adapter (Actisense for example). Probably - IMO - not worth it. Buy a newer Gps with N2K
