I'm buying the Parker 2520XL with the Yamaha 250 and now need autopilot and electronics for trolling and fishing in the Great lakes. Garmin and Raymarine are the ones most talked about. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I installed a Raymarine Evolution EV-200 Autopilot nine seasons ago, in my Parker 2520SL. The autopilot has been a game changer for me in all aspects of running the boat and trolling. When I installed my autopilot, the Raymarine Evolution EV-150 had not been produced yet, it would be a good choice for a single engine Parker 2520.
 
With today’s networked electronics, you’re better off sticking with one manufacturer for items that are going to need to communicate. With that in mind, the AP is probably not going to be the most critical component that goes into your decision as to what electronics manufacturer you’re going to choose for the rest of your system. All the MFRs have AP systems that work well; your best bet is to choose the MFR that produces the MFD interface you like the best, and install the appropriate AP from that same manufacturer.
