    I’m out of town for a few days and don’t have access to my docs. Is there an audio output for this autopilot?

    I had my electric trim turned off and the AP was requesting trim by flashing the UP or DWN button, with a high frequency beeping that was barely audible over engine noise.

    I am wondering if there is a way to add annunciation to my audio panel? Is the AP wired to do so?

    Mine does this but it is so loud thru the headsets! I hate it cause it scares the non pilots...I hope there is a way to control it.

    Are you saying that you hear it inside your headset, or that you hear it despite your headset?

    I didn’t have an installation or wiring diagram at home. So the question remains. I’ll reach out to the avionics shop Monday if I don’t hear anything here.

    I have the same issue with my Stec 60-2 - Aspen - PS 8000B.

    I contacted the shop that did the initial install of the above noted equipment back in 2013 and they indeed confirmed that everything is connected to the 8000B. I should be hearing the tones. I still don't hear a darn thing. Very frustrating!

    Edit to add I purchased the plane in April 2019

    Confirmed from my avionics shop this morning: STEC 60-2 does NOT have audio-out capability.
