What system? Dynon mounts in the wing bracket included with kit. Garmin most people mount AHRS on the back of the PFD and the magnetometer in the kit wing bracket (fits Dynon or Garmin).

Dynon. I didn't know Dynon supplied a wing bracket. Cool. Thanks.

Garmin discourages the PFD mount location, recommending a more solid (sub panel?) location, though Van's demo planes use the PFD mount. I used the PFD location and have periodic AHRS resets that Garmin attributes to vibration.

Switching over to a Dynon SV network, I just put in an SV-AHARS-200, mounted it on my -9A on the first tailcone bulkhead using the Vanís 0149 bracket. That appears to be the recommended location for the unit, as it contains the magnetometer too.

I installed a the dual SkyView ADAHRS modules in the kit provided wing mount bracket on an RV-14A. No remote magnetometer required or desired. Three years of flying and all is well.
