View Full Version : AFS Pilot Magnetometer

Trutrak has recently (if I read their latest installation manual correctly) removed the internal magnetometer from the VSGV II autopilot. As I understand it, this was intended to function as a backup should GPS signal be lost or degraded. (Note there is no connection to the EFIS' AHARS remote-mounted magnetometer).

Since the AFS-Pilot is based on the Trutrak autopilot, has the magnetometer also been removed from the AFS-Pilot?

Hi Noah,

I'd venture to say that if you've recently purchased your AP head, that it does not have the magnetometer based on these Feb-2009 responses from TT:

Yes, it was removed.
