Is there a gauge that indicates the magnetic declination?

Not that I am aware of, but, if you Google 'Magnetic Declination Calculator', there is a calculator for this available on the webpage of Natural Resources Canada.

Depends if you want the RW value or what the sim thinks it is.  Unless you've update the databases, the data is that issued with FSX's initial release, and the differences can be substantial.

The simulation variable A:MAGVAR,degrees gives the sim's idea of the variation at the aircraft's current position.  It should be possible to knock up an XML gauge to display this in a few minutes.

The weathership gauge posted over on the A2A constellation forum indicates the sim's magnetic variation at your current position...
