The older Raymarine autopilots, I have one, talk and listen on Seatalk
1. There is a Raymarine converter that translates STng (Nmea 2000) to ST1. The Axiom (I have two) outputs waypoint, crosstrack, and so on to STng. The converter sends it to ST1, and the autopilot can read it. The only thing the Axiom won't do is engage and disengage the autopilot, you still need the autopilot controller for that. So, the autopilot will track to a course, follow to a waypoint, and so on. When the Axiom advances a waypoint, you have to re-engage the autopilot. So, not full integration, but plenty good enough for me.
