Hi!

Is it possible to convert my 2015 Evinrude 60 Tiller steering(DGTLAGB) to remote steering, and what parts would I need?

It would be best to get with a knowledgeable dealer as not only do parts have to be exchanged but the programming of the EMM is different between a tiller and a remote start engine. A dealer is needed to perform the reprogramming for you.

You can get a general idea by comparing the two models for parts differences at  shop2.evinrude.com

I have my engines by a remote mountain lake without any road connection so bringing them down is very inconvient.
It cant be reprogrammed with my own laptop?

Not unless you know the procedure, have the correct Evinrude diagnostic software, the correct USB adapter, power supply adapter, and the Evinrude interface cable.
