It seems many folks have a problem with interference, particularly when they have a heated pitot. I haven't heard of anyone addressing this problem by simply putting the magnetometer in the right wing away from all of that noise. Is there a reason for not using the right wing to host the magnetometer?

None at all. I have put them in the right wingtip.

Default Magnetometer in the Wing Tip

In our RV-14A we are experiencing frequent magnetometer error messages on the G3X Touch system with the magnetometer mounted in the wing as shown in the plans. We are thinking about relocating it to the wing tip. Can anyone comment on how to construct a mount for it in the wing tip? Should it actually go out to the fiberglass wingtip or should it be located in the outermost bay in the wing? Any advice would be appreciated.

I have put them in the outermost bay and in the wingtip. Both seem to work well. Place it forward towards the spar to increase the distance from the steel balance tube in the aileron.

Default Right wing tip OK.

Mine works like a charm in the right wingtip shown here.

Viewed the pics.
Question: What did you align the fabricated Magnetometer mount plate with in the fore/aft (pitch plane) and left/right (roll plane)?
