Anybody have one of these? BT.....hmmm.....skeptical.

I have never sailed with an electrical AP & are just about to hook up my AP
that has sat idle for eons.
If single handing and changing sails with AP (set to wind) to luff up, wouldn't this be better?
Any other uses other than redundancy/ gathering toys?
Or, making one despondent when it doesn't work. ie craps out.

Re: Navico WR10

installed one on a 75' boat and it surprisingly worked bow to stern. with the antena sorta in middle. (and under fiberglass, not even mounted outside)

certainly wouldn't replace having wired controls at helm or elsewhere. but an extra add on.

lots of raymarine boats use the wireless remote. but that's the only simrad one I've done.
