Cessna 300a autopilot compatability

Cessna 300a autopilot compatability

Having an avionics upgrade done, shop installing g500 couldn't get 300a to take heading info from g500/430w, Garmin engineers couldn't help, the aspen rep tried to help out. It seems that the 300a uses ac voltage for heading inputs and the G500 puts out dc. So the 300a has been sent to autopilot central for an upgrade. It's not back yet but will post with the results.

Re: Cessna 300a autopilot compatability

Do you have a good avionics shop that is familiar with the Navomatic 300 system? I just rebuilt my DG / 500a  and my turn coordinator 300a series - getting the shear pin replaced too. Now its\' time to get the head buttons un-stuck and make it all work.

Thanks.

Hi Steve,
Autopilot Central in OK is rock-solid on the Navomatic 300\'s. 
Most of what they do is helping pilots keep their \"legacy\" autopilots flying.

Re: Cessna 300a autopilot compatability

Thanks Bob.

I am in touch with Central Florida Avionics in Leesburg (KLEE). They say they can make it work and they have parts. Apparently Sigmatronics bought all of the Navomatic and I assume legacy Cessna parts and rights. So we shall see. I am optimistic. It seems like a good, basic, functional wing leveler plus it should intercept a heading from Nav 1/GPS.
