290 DC Autopilot Installation?

Postby Trent » Sun Dec 21, 2008 7:32 am

I just received the Garmin GHP 10 Autopilot (their new version of the TR-1 Gladiator). Could one of you at the factory please tell me where you typically mount the pump, ECU, and CCU when you've installed the TR-1 on a 290DC? I'm having a hard time coming up with a clean install that accommodates the relatively short cable runs that Garmin supplies while keeping the CCU away from magnetic and electrical interference. Thanks!

Trent,

You probably need to call the factory as monitoring of this website is sporadic at best. I suggest you ask for Scott Ellis.

John,

I have a 07 33TE with the TR-1 auto pilot. I have operated all types of boats from 65 footers on down and all types of auto pilots. My 33TE with the TR-1 gives me the best track I have every experienced and is very easy to calibrate. My other boat, 06 41XF Albemarle, has a Simrad AP and suprisingly works very well but if I have troubles with it I will change it out to a TR-1 or whatever Garmins now calls it since they have now bought the product line. I can take pictures of the installation but I am not sure how the 33 is layed out vrs the 29.
