    The T5 isn't an "auto pilot" - it is just a remote steering device.
    You are the one that controls direction, not your GPS.

    Yeah, they seem to work alright...put one on our Merc 15 Pro Kicker last year, used it all season long without any issues.
    How do you mean about a motor connecting rod? - steering a bigger outboard tied to a kicker?
    It is designed to hook to the low horsepower motor only, I doubt is has enough guts to move both motors without a lot of stress on the T5 drivetrain.

    that's true its a connector rod between to motors mine a inboard and kicker 9/9 I have a auto pilot already but was not sure if it was strong enough to move both motors I know my king will do that. not the t5 I like the idea bot others choices are costly.
