SP80 Autopilot June 23, 2013
Reviewer: S. Pieter Boersma from San Diego, California  
The autopilot was a breeze to install.  I really love the waterproof components. On sea trials the autopilot proved to be rock solid. Also, the installation booklet was excellent.  More than anything, I appreciated Hodges Marine not charging my credit card until the product was shipped and received in good order.  Looking forward to doing business with you again soon.

Easy to install/rock solid performance. May 4, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Solomons Island, Maryland Chesapeake Bay  
This was for installation on a friend's Jefferson 42. We used the existing hydraulic pump and drive. Directions for the Si-Tex SP-80-1 were good... good schematics... very easy installation (well, running wires through a boat is never easy)... easy to initialize and calibrate... Then, great performance. We haven't run the boat in sporty conditions yet, to see if we need to fine tune the sensitivity of the unit. But, for basic, "point-and-shoot," take-me-where-I-want-to-go function, this unit is great.
