Best location for auto pilot compass

Postby whiteknight » Sun Jul 22, 2018 10:59 pm

I'm reaching out for suggestions on compass locations for a Simrad AP44. I have a 266SF and the console has three batteries.

Thanks,

Ray

The manual says to locate it at a low center of gravity away from electronics. For this reason i glued mine to the top of the fuel tank as far back as i could get it. Was able to do this through the rear access plate on my 27te. Seems to work very well.
