DEMO names

I usually have DEMO auto start with airspeed. The other day I was trying to get some electrical system data prior to engine start. I manually started DEMO and manually stopped it. But when I examined the data, the name of the file was DEMO 000000.log. Certainly this was because when I started DEMO m...

ADHRS

Reading the manual, if I have two Sport EX displays, both have an adaptive AHRS inside. If I’m using one as PFD and the other as MFD, and the PFD AHRS should fail, it should be the case that the MFD AHRS takes over. Does this require a dedicated serial port on each display or does interdisplay seria...

Re: Fuel flow change

Just an update. I cleaned both FloScans by reversing the flow, ie put the in hose on the out connection and ran fuel thru them for a few minutes. I tried to run the fuel thru a paper towel to see if there was debris but that wasn't very obvious. But after doing this to both FloScans, my fuel flow in...

Serial for Autopilot

I'm thinking about adding GRT AP servos. I have Sport HS EFIS, S200 & S100. My S200 PFD is using one pair of serial for interdisplay link, another for ARINC module, another for EIS in and alt out and the fourth serial in for GPS from GNS430. Can I use the serial ports on the ARINC for autopilot serv...

Fuel flow change

I have two Flo Scan transducers for fuel flow, one measures in the other out. It’s worked ok for many years. This season it seems to be about 15% low. The only change was that the engine was off the airframe this winter but all lines were capped. Looking for suggestions on what to check, clean etc? ...

Re: PC Playback of DEMO files?

You can use GRT DeCode. Look on the Misc Software page for DEMO file decoder. Not only is the software there but instructions too. Savvy analysis will decode engine data. Both work pretty well to display data graphically and in spreadsheet. Neither will replicate the cockpit display. I’ve not tried ...

Re: Interface

Thanks Jeff.

I haven't seen any install docs so I'm only guessing that ARINC would be the same.

Interface

I have a GNS430 connected to my Sport HS using RS232 and ARINC. I'm considering upgrading to a separate GPS (GPS 175) and Nav-Comm (GNC255). With the 430 I use the CDI button to switch between GPS and VORLOC mode. With two independent units how does the EFIS "know" to use the Nav-Comm ARINC data for...

Re: ADS-B vs. XM Weather

Jeff, I just reread this old thread. I recently spent several days in Canada and missed having weather available since I now use ADSB. Are the XM features supported today the same as stated above? Do you support Canada weather? Is lightning, either ADSB or XM, available today on my Sport HS? If I us...

Re: XM Wx Question

Thanks Jeff. I’ve managed to purchase a Mobile Link and it works with the WxWorxs receiver that came with my old GRT XM setup. Now I have XM on my iPad, both in FltPlnGO and also with Baron’s standalone product. WxWorx website is being redone so you purchase Mobile Link directly from Baron, $200. Bu...
