Robertson Fluxgate Compass is sooooo well hidden

I am both a new boat owner and new member. Lots of things to do to make my Sea Ray 420 'ship shape'
Before I start tearing her apart, I thought I might check in here to see if anyone may have suggestions on how to find the secret locations of the Robertson 'Fluxgate Compass' and Robertson 'course detector', other than follow the harness. These are part of an older AP200DL system. Circa. 1991.
Please and thanks mates.

Find a big strong magnet and go all around the boat with it while an assistant watches the heading display.
