    Garmin G5 and GMU-11 Location

    Currently removing my vacuum system and installing a G5. Looking for any issues and experiences with the G5 and where you mounted the GDU-11. I will be installing a certified attitude unit first. If I like it, perhaps another G5 for heading or switch to a G3x. Thanks for your comments and help.

    Just follow the instructions as best you can. Might not be able to satisfy them all

    G5 fits most panels pretty easy. The GDU-11 needs to be isolated from any ferrous metals AND from any electrical wires such as nav, strobes, or landing lights. To close to any of these and it will skew the readings from the unit. Aluminum bracket with brass hardware.

    Thanks for the replies. We are thinking probably the right wing. I was hoping someone might share a specific location that has worked well for them.

    The GMU-11 looks easier than the -22. My -22 is located aft of the rear spar 1 1/2 ribs inboard of the right tip. Local area screws are stainless steel. Wingtip wires are in forward of front spar. The proof that it works comes on the day you commission it and run the interference tests. Mine worked.
