I have removed the Auto Pilot. This removed a large box (clutter) from the wheel house. I may never install a new Auto Pilot but if I do it will have a modest control (NAVpilot-300) that will get installed along side the MFD – a lot less ‘in your face’. Also; the AutoPilot was old and not period correct. So another system eliminated (and may not get replaced). I have to install some kind of compass but removing that large compass freed up the space for the future MFD, AutoPilot control and new switches.
