For the optimum use of the unit the following instructions should be followed. 
Attention : The instructions can change. Please read the manual carefully.

1. The distance between the autopilot and the antenna cables should be at least 1 m, with strong transmitters 2 m are recommended. So there can´t be any interferences of the electronics.

2. The distance from the mounting socket to the tiller pin is 589 mm. If the distance is bigger,  pushrod extensions can be mounted. The tiller pilot has to be mounted horizontally.
