It modifies the heading error signal from the DG. You put the radio coupler in heading mode so it doesn't use the nav error.

Cool.  Sounds like I’ll be selling my accutrak then!

I'm sorry but your autopilot is not on the list.

I’ve been advised by Brittain and garmin that It is on the new revision that will release any day now.

Where did you get that list? The latest Certified Install manual I could find onlinel, Rev. 11, says (for Cessna)

If the 300A is supported, that would make all the difference for me.

Welcome aboard, Marck.

We have @TrekLawler around here often...

Trek is a Garmin Tech Guy...

He doesn't visit very often.  Is more likely to be found kicking around at BT...

It looks like the 300A has been left off the list for a reason.

Good luck.

Best regards,

The 300A is the ACV version of the 300.   The 300B is the DCV version.    They are both still in the automated configuration menu of the primary G5 in the current firmware.  There are some different pin assignments on the GAD though.

The 300A is supported and has an automated config setting in the menu.  I think the above image was an oversight because there is just a 300A (AC) and 300B (DC).

Go to page 5 of this post and read a post from Trek Lawler from Garmin on November 10. The 300A is not supported - the early manual was wrong.

Strange, I didn’t realize they intentionally removed it, as the 300A is one of the config settings in the current g5 firmware and according to a volt meter, it sends AC signals, albeit the pretty low levels.   Perhaps that’s why it got removed.  The g502a that the 300a uses for heading signal puts out levels much higher than what the G5/gad auto config was sending out for the 300a.   

Although it was removed from the list, I believe it is technically possible to achieve a working connection at least through the customized output settings, though not legal.  Any avionics tech with a volt meter should be able to figure it out pretty easily by referencing the g502a.

resurrecting this thread, as I just got an email from Ceci at Brittain... It seems they are trucking along and Brittain will survive one way or another.   She sent me the attached prelim drawings that they are working again on getting Brittain APs added to Garmin's STC.   These drawings are a little more complicated than another way that the system can also operate.   Attached for everyone to keep record.  ;)
