Wind, waves and current will constantly try to push you off course. The straighter the line the less fuel burnt. They actually save money on fuel costs. Besides, it's nice when you're getting knocked around to not have to fight the wheel. That can get tiring (annoying) after a while.

Never looked at it that way very interesting, what's the cost for a system and how hard are they to install. Does it control the speed as well or do you set that your self.
