Jared - just saw your post as I was finishing mine. I'll PM you my email if you wouldn't mind sending pictures of the mount.

Thanks, James
I think an optional kit and drawing is about to be released that will cover this.

Default Picture of the GMU bracket on ADHRS mount

Below is a pic of the Garmin bracket riveted to the the ADHRS mount. The Garmin bracket gets drilled/riveted to the ADHRS mount and the GMU-22 mounting ring gets drilled/riveted to the Garmin bracket. This could all probably be done through the wing root or access panel after the wings are closed up, although riveting the Garmin bracket to the ADHRS mount seem like it would be pretty tricky inside the wing. If it were me and I was trying to do this after the wing was closed up I would probably just mount the Garmin bracket directly to the access panel cover instead of the ADHRS mount.

James,

Scott would know better about release of the GMU22 mounting kit which I tested sometime ago. It makes the install and attachment to the wing bracket very easy.

Thanks Scott for chiming in.

I think the kit/plans mount the GMU brackets to the ADAHRS tray so that it can be slid into the mount in the wing making it easy to remove in the future if ever needed.

Let us know what you hear from Van's about availability.

I'm about to take all my big pieces to the airport and I'd like to get the magnetometer installed. I've been waiting for them to finish up the mount.

Vans says at least a few weeks before anything is released. Unless someone wants to come over and do my fiberglass parts for me I got plenty of other stuff to do while I wait.

Clay - sorry if the thread drifted too far.

Default What about strobes and landing lights..

..interference? Is the wing location out in the tip or in the outboard leading edge area? Anyone have a jpeg of the plans for this install location. I would assume it could be used for installation in an RV-10 as well, since the wings are so similar.

Default Magnetometer

Pardon my ignorance, but what is the need of a magnetometer? I am half way through my left wing build and noticed this conversation and it really caught my eye. I am tentatively planning on a Dynon panel, is there something I should install, while the bottom skin s still off?

Thanks,

This discussion is revolving around the Garmin Magnetometer for the G3x system.

I believe the magnetometer is built into the Dynon ADAHRS. If so, you are fine as the standard install is for the Dynon ADAHRS.
