Which Auto Pilot?

180 G w/no existing autopilot. I would like a 160 kt airplane w/all glass panel. However, that is not in the cards. Is the S-tec w/ alt hold & GPSS steering the way to go or is there a better way. Current GPS is certified enroute & non precision approach (Garmin 300 XL -- not a 430 or 530 WAAS----but a very capable unit once you learn to operate it) Thanks
