The documentation for the GX Pilot does not suggest an initial setting for the VRT and LAT Activity. I understand that these will need to be adjusted appropriately once I am testing the autopilot in the air. But, what is a good starting point?

macrafic,

I think this post has what you are after for initial settings. To do a thorough installation checkout and fine tune the settings we would recommend going through the steps in the installation manual starting with Section 34.4.8.3 (Rev AB) which covers the initial ground setup.
