you might just wait for the posted sales event from?
West Marin, Pyacht, defender, etc etc.

So you know, I have not had as much luck with mine as Bruce and I also have mine mounted about the same place on the tiller as Ricks photo.

Also for mounting, you will need the longest extension they sell.

For my mount to the rail I used a 1/2" Pipe flang with a 2" nipple with a 1/2" to 3/8" reducer (all bronze), then drilled the reducer for the pocket the TP 32 comes with. And as you guessed Mine is on top of the tiller and runs level.

I agian would note; I only use the tiller pilot when motoring, it is just not the salor my Monitor wind vane is. But under motor it is a workable solution.

All new ones should be NEMA 2000 compliant so should interface with most new GPS's it also has the old NEMA output as well.

Best of luck, and fair motoring to you.
