Hi to everyone.
I have a 325 and I am trying to install the autopilot.
Can you please tell me where is the autopilot box and fluxgate compass installed?
Also do you have any pictures of the Jefa drive unit and rudder feedback installation layout?
Thanks

Hi there!

Inside the big compartment on the port side there is three hatches on the bottom. Two in the front and one in the back. The one in the back is were the compass is installed. If you post a picture of the autopilot box I might be able to tell you where that is installed also.

I can also post some pictures of the drive unit , but not until after this weekend.

Cheers!

Hi Magnus
I havent thought of installing the compass in that compartment. Good idea.
I have the AC-12 autopilot. I am thinking installing it inside the electric switches compartment in the salon.
I would appreciate if you could post some pictures of the drive unit, since I cannot find any other 325-320 to have a look.
Thanks allot.

Your welcome!

I will try to locate the AC-12 unit and take photos of all the components and where they are installed on my boat.
 
Will do it this sunday!

Magnus,
Your installation looks like a genuine factory fitting
