Default GMC 507

I have a G3X, dual 7" portrait screen set up in my RV9A. I'm working on setting everything up for first flight. I haven't calibrated anything, or even started the engine yet.
I have all green checkmarks in all the right places in the config mode of the PDF.

The "problem" is (I think it's a problem), with the AP "head" on, I don't have anything in the AP bar of the PDF (AFCS, IIRC in red). The backlighting of the GMC 507 is on, but no other lights. None of them come on when pressed. Shouldn't the AP or FD light at least light up to arm it?

I've pretty much figured out how to configure the PFD and the MFD to look like I think I want them. The AP has me a bit confused though.

You will have to do the ADAHRS and magnetometer calibration.

I wondered if this was/wasn't the case. Thanks. And this would prevent any of the lights on the 507 from coming on?
