Wheel Autopilots

Have been looking at/for a wheelpilot recently. could not find a new Simrad 32 or even a used 32 or 30. Decided to order a Raymarine X-5 Smartpilot autopilot. they originally said February availability. When I ordered, I was told July 15th for sure. Now it is expected sometime in August, along with a price increase. So, I bought a used Simrad WP 30 on ebay yesterday. Now I'm looking for a manual for it, if anyone knows where to find one or a copy. I'll also be interested in reports on all wheel pilot sytems and people's experiences with them.

I know this doesnt help your current quest but next time your looking for electronics try theyre selection and prices cant be beat. I bought my furuno belowdeck from them and have been using them as a supplier for most of my purchases since.
