Autopilot B&G ac12n and ISailor: is it possible to steer autopilot with Isailor

I have a B&G Setup with Zeus 2 9“ Chartplotter, WiFi-gofree and an Autopilot B&G Ac12n. With Ilink I can mirror the chartplotter but cannot remotely via iPad operate the autopilot as B&G blocks it due to security reason, well more to sell their 500 bucks remote

In have Yacht devices Nmea wifi dongle too. Is it possible to remote steer with iPad and I sailor app the above B&G autopilot?
- Don‘t have isailor licences yet and save paying 50 bucks if it doesn‘t work.
- if yes does this setup work without the Zeus chartplotter eg as backup should the Zeus break. Does it work in parallel, means i have the zeus2 with navionics and isailor in parallel running, eg Zeus and navionics With Autopilot and then I just remotely change the autopilot by +10 in the isailor app?
- if no is there any other app that would work, eg just an autopilot NMEA App.

I don‘t want the additional remote but be able to remote steer the B&G autopilot with an iPad and iPad Pro.

1.) opencpn can send autopilot nmea sentences over TCP as well as UDP.

2.) Several apps can do the same on iOS. Here is one app that can do the same that opencpn can do for free.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/i-bo...994992062?mt=8

If B&G has a proprietary interface for their autopilot then neither of the above solutions would work.
