Only if you have the separate A/P knob panels. I was somewhat annoyed when they came out with these after my panel was completed and didn't provide for auto trim in the system without the additional modules, but TBH, I don't have an issue with not having auto trim.

after installing the Dynon a/p panel with my AFS EFIS, I found auto-trim nice because before I often didn't notice the trim suggestions on the a/p. Now they don't show up anymore :-)
The a/p panel also provides time-limited trim actuation to mitigate runaway trim effects.
