Garmin Drive A unit installed corectly

End of July 2015 - At private slip in Nuevo Vallarta in Banderas Bay Mexico

 Picture of the rudder stops and Garmin Drive A unit attached to the quadrant.

My question is:
Is there room for improvement on this installation?

Should we try attaching the drive A unit to the outside of the rudder stop on the quadrant?  Say we weld an extension on the SS bracket that is holding the rudder stop onto the quadrant and attach the Drive A unit there? It may not work as it could hit the rudder stop attached to the quadrant. But if it did work it may have more leverage? There is no room for a rudder arm. Or would this make any difference. 

From Garmin support:
"Thank you for contacting Garmin International.  I'd be more than happy to help you with the installation of your steer-by-wire system.  As far as myself and others on my team can see, there is no issue with the installation of your system, nor is there anything else that should be done differently."

 This is good news and gives us peace of mind.
