GARMIN GMU 11 MAGNETOMETER FOR G3X / G5 010-01788-00

$555.00/Each
Part# 11-15077
MFR Model# 010-01788-00

Overview

Digital 3-axis Magnetometer Heading Sensor
  • Small, lightweight, cost-effective source of magnetic heading reference
  • Provides accurate 3-axis sensing of the Earth’s magnetic field for use by Air Data, Attitude Heading Reference System (ADAHRS) to determine aircraft heading
  • Integrates with G3X™, G3X Touch™ and G5 series electronic flight displays
  • Usable for both experimental and certificated aircraft installations with the G5 electronic instrument serving as DG/HSI and/or attitude indicator
  • Installs easily; mountable in 4 cardinal compass directions
GMU 11 is an affordable, microprocessor-based magnetometer. It can be used to accurately sense the Earth’s magnetic field alignment and provide this data to compatible ADAHRS processors for use in referencing aircraft magnetic heading. In essence, the magnetometer acts as an electronic compass, showing the ADAHRS which direction the aircraft is facing in relation to magnetic north.

Unlike conventional flux valve systems, which detect only the horizontal component of the Earth’s magnetic field, the GMU 11 magnetometer provides full 3-axis vector measurements for the most precise digital indication of magnetic field strength and direction.

GARMIN GMU 11 MAGNETOMETER FOR G3X / G5 010-01788-00

Good price for the value-add. I hooked this up directly to a G5 (no G3X in my plane) and it worked perfectly. I *NEVER* have to set my DG anymore! Was very easy to install (and is not as sensitive to disturbances as the install manual might have you believe). I replaced my vacuum DG with this magnetometer and a G5, for about the same cost as getting a new vacuum DG!

It is so nice powering up your aircraft and not needing to dial in your heading against the wet compass. Product is worth more than its weight in gold.

The only reason I didn’t give this probe 5 stars was that I had to wait over 2 weeks for it to arrive...

Q&A

Please note, Aircraft Spruce Canada's personnel are not certified aircraft mechanics and can only provide general support and ideas, which should not be relied upon or implemented in lieu of consulting an A&P or other qualified technician. Aircraft Spruce Canada assumes no responsibility or liability for any issue or problem which may arise from any repair, modification or other work done from this knowledge base. Any product eligibility information provided here is based on general application guides and we recommend always referring to your specific aircraft parts manual, the parts manufacturer or consulting with a qualified mechanic.

Q: I have a G3X installed and I know that the G3X touch and the plain G3X system cannot comunicate but is there a way that I can use my plain GDU as just a GPS and then I connect the touch up with my excisting module's?

You would have to run the GDU 370/375 completely separate with its own GPS signal and rewire the G3X touch to be the main display with your existing LRUs.

Q: For the Garmin G3X EFIS, do I have to buy the Connector Kits if I buy the Harness kit?

Yes, you would still need to purchase the connector kit in addition to the harness.

Q: What additional connector kits and/or harnesses are needed with K10-00016-40 (single display, no EiS, no XM).

You would need the GDU 460/465 Install Kit (11-12646), GSU 25 Connector Kit (11-11433), and the GMU 22 Install Kit (11-12213).

Q: What wiring is included in the G3X VFR Harness EFIS/EMS 4CYL CON/LYC?

For the VFR harness all of the components including the engine leads are included minus connection to an auto pilot and audio panel (which have there own part numbers on our list). When ordering a G3X system, we will send you a worksheet to fill out for your unique setup.

Q: What is included in the G3X VFR EFIS?EMS harness?

As each G3X harness we create is unique, there is a form that you would fill out which will includes the features you want including and pricing.

Q: Does the GARMIN G3X GMU 11 MAGNETOMETER come with a connector kit, or must the connector kit in accessories be purchased in addition to the Magnetometer?

It is not included. Please see part # 11-15066.

Q: What is the difference in 11-11433 and 11-15303?

11-11433 is the GSU 25 connector kit by itself. Part # 11-15303 is the GSU 25 connector kit with a custom harness.

Q: What is the correct connector kit part number, to connect this to a Garmin G5?

The connector kit for the GMU 11 is part # 11-15066. To pair the G5 with the GMU 11, you'll need to run a 2 conductor shielded twisted pair on pins 1 and 2 of each connector. The shielding must be terminated to a ring terminal on the housing of the connector to function as a proper shield ground.

Q: I have the experimental Garmin G5 and would like to add a GMU 11 magnetometer. What is included in the GMU 11 connector kit?

The GMU 11 connector kit (Garmin pn: 011-03002-00) includes the following: cast connector backshell with hardware can bus terminator 9 pin d-sub connector 9 size 20 d-sub socket contacts

Q: I have a G5 Experimental version. The product selection is either G3X (Experimental) or G5 (Certified). Which one do I need for a G5 (Experimental)?

The GMU 11 experimental version, part number 11-15077, is the item that you will need.
