I have a Simrad autopilot
with an AC40 autopilot
computer, an AP 26 control head
, and an AP 27 wired remote
. The plastic connectors on the rear of the AP 26 have disintegrated, and one of the Robnet jacks is damaged. I've procured a used AP 26 on eBay with pristine connectors, and intend to swap out the damaged unit with the "new" one. My question pertains to configuration and setup. Am I correct to assume that all of the parameters are stored in the AC40? Since I can run the autopilot with either control head, it seems logical that the actual installation-specific data is stored in the autopilot computer. I don't want to go through the entire installation
sea trial. I just want to unplug the old one and install its replacement.
