Default Altitude Reporting

I have a Garmin 345 with the integrated altitude encoder. I set it up and calibrated it per the manual, but every time I talk to ATC they see me as 900' off. Does anyone have a set-up procedure for these?

If you didn't use a repair station with pitot-static test equipment there really is no way for you complete encoder setup.
