Re: V 7 ... audio alerts ...

... Audio alerts don't play through the display link, so the audio will only play on a screen if that screen is the one that is also detecting the traffic. If the screen is showing the pop up, and that screen has the audio output wired (and Traffic Alerts enabled), it should be playing the traffic ...

Forgetting to preset MAP altitude and then pressing missed..

If I forget to preset the MAP Altitude and then subsequently press the MISSED button, the AP displays a red box with dashes and commands a VS climb. If I jump over and set the MAP, the red box is still displayed. If I try to set the normal altitude box to a new altitude, I still have the red box. Wh...

Re: Traffic depiction on Plates

Hi Jeff... the airport was I19 - Greene County and the approach was the RNAV RW 25. We were over TUNNU at the time.

Traffic depiction on Plates

Shot approaches yesterday and I noticed that the traffic location, when depicted on the approach plate, was incorrect. I had ForeFlight up with the same plate, so I was able to confirm my own ship location matched, however FF showed the traffic in front of me (which was correct, confirmed visually) ...

Re: A/P will not switch to HDG mode when internal GPS is act

Hi Jeff... I finally got to the hangar this past weekend and you were spot on.

According to the wiring diagrams (which may be a bit dated) the OBS Annunciation (P1001-14) from the GTN 650 is wired in to Analog 4 (B-18.) When I changed the function to 'Off', I was able to engage in HDG mode.

Re: A/P will not switch to HDG mode when internal GPS is act

After additional testing, I was able to determine that I can't select HDG mode when GPS2 (the internal GPS) is active. After powering up the EFIS, the A/P will be in HDG mode until the internal GPS activates. At that point it will switch to ENAV mode and stay there. Here is a link to a video of the ...

A/P will not switch to HDG mode when internal GPS is active

Testing out my newly installed GRT Autopilot with Horizon HX EFIS (V9 software.) GNAV works flawlessly (both on the ground and in the air.) The problem I have is this: I was ground testing yesterday and could not get the HDG mode engaged. When I activate the A/P in HDG mode, it appears to briefly go...
