    Default Pitch trim position sensor to G3X

    Does anybody know how to wire up the pitch trim position sensor to the G3X system? I donít have the stand alone AOA display just the GDU460.

    Yea it goes into the GEA-24. I wired it to the 244 connector on the GEA-24. You then go setup the input limits in the setup page of the G3X.

    Thank you Dustin. I wired up the sensor as you described into the GEA24B connector 244. That is the GP1 circuit in the G3X. I donít understand how to configure the sensor to show a graph on the display. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    OkayÖ.talked to Garmin today (thanks Ron) and they gave me the schooling on how to configure the pitch trim sensor and it all makes sense now. Iím going to admit that I am not very sharp when it comes to this stuff. So thank you for all of your knowledge, everyone!!

    Glad you got it figured out. I am traveling and can't get you picture until a get back. Just know you can set green areas of the indicator, and you can reverse the indications to how you like to see it. Took me a bit but I was able to configure trim indicator to match the other aircraft I fly so it goes in the same direction.
