I have a FlightDek 180 with AP74 that's fed by a Garmin 296. Or  not fed as it happens. The autopilot works perfectly in HDG and ALT modes but isn't working in NAV. As if it isn't receiving an output from the Garmin 296. Does anyone have the baud rate/settings that should be selected on both the Dynon and the Garmin? And info on how to select them on each unit? I'm sure that the wiring between the units is correct.

Can't say for sure but I believe most Garmin GPS outputs are 9600 baud. If you can find documentation on a later model (eg 496), I'd expect it to be the same.

Check this post from the past:

It should be set to 9600 baud, and "NORMAL" not "FAST" in advanced settings.

You sure your only issue is that the HSI isn't set to GPS? You won't have a HSI option if you don't have the GPS displayed on your HSI.

HSI not set to GPS. Bingo, It's all working perfectly now.
Many thanks.
