Alpha 3000, the Best Autopilot Ever Made?

My yacht came with it, but it still works perfect.
Cant say that about anything else on the boat but the radar.
I have seen nothing but rave reviews on the unit.
So do they even make a better autopilot?

Yep, had it on 3 boats no fails, steers in most any condition. They dont interface to your GPS etc though, so you may have to do SOME thinking!
