Agreed. A motor that was both electric and cable steer, and then incorporate the other options-Ipilot, autopilot, co-pilot etc.
FWIW I've considered leaving my cable steer motor up front, and getting a bow mount electric steer motor for the transom, and mounting it on the gunnell. A much less convenient, and much more expensive way to have best of both worlds.
