MGL Avionics Electronic Compass

According to my airframe logbook, my 2008 AMD CH601XLi-B had the original PAI-700 compass replaced in 2009 with a new one.

Thanks so much for the reply. Your story sounds much like mine. I have a Private rating but let it lapse and will use my California drivers license to get a recertification in the sport pilot category. I have many questions so I appreciate the links and will likely be in touch.
Thanks again...
