I have a ComNav Autopilot
1001 which was recently vandalized. The "Main" cable (connects the controller to the distribution box) and the "Compass" cable (connected to a fluxgate
compass) were cut about 4 inches from the controller. I could not find any parts
list for ordering replacement plugs (connectors) or cables
. The installation
was originally done in 1995.
My options appear to be: 1. install new cable connectors (plugs) on the remaining cables
, 2. replace the "Main" and "Compass" cables completely.
I contacted ComNav via email
and got a brief response that I could use the following two items to repair
the MAIN and Compass
MAIN (1001 distribution box) has 10’ cable w/ plug
p/n 31110015 (can be solder to the PCB) US$ 263.52 MSRP.
( Magnetic or Fluxgate
?) 10’ cable w/ plug
p/n 31110020 US$ 161.30 MSRP.
I can not find either of the two parts for sale
Also, ComNav specifically states "splicing the compass cable is NOT recommended" and the above item would require a splice to the existing cable.
The Main cable uses a 12-pin connector and the compass uses a 7-pin connector.
Does anyone know where to order replacement connectors? Or a good supplier of ComNav parts and advice
