Default Display trim setting on PFD -G3X Touch

Had to replace a faulty Garmin GSU25 ADAHRS. Did all required recalibrations per installation manual. Many personal settings had to be reset. Trim setting display disappeared from PFD. Canít find how to display it in installation or users manual. It must be there, but I canít find it. Anybody know how?
Thanks!

The setting is in the EIS plane GEA inputs tab, along with the MP and CHT setups. You will need to figure out which GP input the trim pot is tied to and then configure it to be the trim setting. Take a look in section 34.4.32 in the install manual for more details.

Ben,

If you touch the HSI, and select "More Options", scroll to the bottom and there is a switch to toggle the trim position indicators on and off.

Thanks,

Justin

Default Pitch trim

Thanks Bill, and thanks Justin, for the prompt replies. Just now got out to the hangar. Tried Justin's fix first as it looked easier, and presto! trim is back on the display! Easy as pie- when you know how. Thanks so much.
