You can find them on ebay brand new for pretty cheap. However I would recommend getting your hands on the GMU-22, or at least the mounting ring that comes with it prior to closing up the wing. The mounting ring (included with the GMU-22) needs to be riveted to the Garmin bracket, which is riveted to the ADHRS bracket. I can take some pictures of my install and send them to you if it would be helpful.
I am considering installing mine on a deck in the junction on F-01407 bulkhead and F-14131 fuse rib but this wing mounting option is very attractive. I wonder if the wingtip/landing lights cabling won't interfere with the proper operation of the GMU-22 since they run nearby and carry moderate and intermittent currents, like landing lights and led strobes.

Will this be applicable to the -10 as well?

Ricardo, I had interference from the strobe initially. I was advised to make sure all wing lights were grounded back to the fuse which fixed the problem.

No
It is specific to a mount tray that gets built into the RV-14 wing during construction. Adding it afterwards would be difficult.

Looked, but do not find this addressed >>

My 14 wings are complete. Is there a recommended next best place to mount the Magnetometer than the ADHRS mount already in-place in the wing?

Default Take a look at this thread for alternate location

Search for "GMU22 Mount" on 9/16/2016. I'm not sure how to paste a thread link.

Rejuvenating this thread because....

I wonder if anyone has any issue with the lights or the pitot heat from a GMU22 in this wing location. I'm using the standard kit-supplied wiring. Should I expect any problems? I figure that if Van's supplies the wiring with the wing kit, and says to put the GMU22 on the bracket, all should be well. But?
