I want to install an autopilot on a boat with cable steering. What do I need?

Dometic does not make adapters or interface parts to connect an autopilot to mechanical cable steering. This is left to the autopilot manufacturers. We do, however, strongly recommend that if you are installing an autopilot, upgrade your mechanical steering to a Dometic hydraulic system, which is designed to interface with most autopilots and will give you superior all-around performance. 

NOTE: Autopilots cannot be used with any type of mechanical NFB (no-feedback) steering. In that case, you MUST upgrade to Dometic.
