Skyview HDX Autotrim
The autotrim is a separate controller within the auto-pilot control module. For the auto-pilot control module to work, you only have to plug it into the network connection on the Skyview (it looks like an old serial connection). To get the autotrim to work, there is additional wiring that must be connected.
Without the auto-pilot control module, when you are using the auto-pilot and the trim needs to be adjusted, you will get a pitch up or pitch down notification at the top of the Skyview. With the auto-pilot control module (and the included trim controller wired up), you still get the pitch up or pitch down notification, but the trim controller does the adjusting for you. You just watch the Skyview and the notification will go away.
There are other ways to put handles on the panel that individual owners have developed.
