Surprised

I'm surprised that your pedestal and gps agree at all as the pedestal should read magnetic north and your gps true north. See if your gps has a setting that causes it to read magnetic north instead of true.
You don't say where you are or what the declination is for your area but if it's near zero then your autohelm is wrong. In any case you have a real conundrum.
Good luck.
