Default GMU 11 Distance from Servo

In my 10, I would like to put the GMU 11 in the right wing tip to save some Canbus wiring length. Otherwise, I need a 25' out and back wiring run if I use the left wing. However, I understand there is a desire to keep the GMU 11 away from servos. Is 4' of separation enough?

Mine is less than that distance in my RV7. Everything works perfectly.

I have the same dilemma, over extending the CAN bus or be close to the servo. My CAN bus will be about 3 or so over the suggested length of 66 or will be about 5 feet away from the Roll servo but within the spec of CAN bus length. In my conversation with Garmin support, they feel going pass the CAN bus length is a better option. The CAN bus length use to be over 100.

I am going to follow their suggestion and extend the CAN bus.

4 should be plenty of distance.

Default Option

You could also change to the GMU-22. Just another option!
