I do have a separate control head for the autopilot. It is on the starboard side of the cockpit, just above the manual bilge pump. The previous owner had an earlier AP controller mounted there so I just kept it in the same place, although a slightly larger hole was needed. From your photo it looks like you may have a control head in the same place. I can control the AP from the MFD or the control head, and routinely use both. The MFD control works very well, but for some things, especially calibration, you need the control head, I believe.@ddoles Your build turned out handsomely. Nice work.
I also see you snuck your GPS antenna above the backstay radar mount. Good idea. I've been puzzling that one out too.
You don't have a separate control head for your autopilot. Does this mean you are controlling the pilot from the Axiom touch-screen? If so, is the Axiom pretty easy/reliable for wet fingers and quick adjustments?
