Boat had a Robertson AP-100 installed (with linear drive) when I bought it but was missing the control unit (cockpit control box
with knobs) which had apparently died and not been replaced. Have seen some used control units avail on E-bay, etc but no idea if it's worth buying
one since I have no idea if the parts
I still have work. Questions:
Is there any relatively easy way to find out if the remaining installed parts
(linear drive, compass
, computer, RF unit) work before buying
an old used control head
which may or may not have it's own issues?
Does anyone know if any of the new SIMRAD
AP controllers would be backwards compatable with my (entire or selected components like the linear drive) existing system? I admit I haven't checked with Simrad
tech suport yet....
