HXr AHARS issue

I’ve been enjoying the new HXr display that I installed last month. Whereas my Sport SX would usually take 2 minutes to align after pressing OK the HXr has been aligned by the time the OK softkey appeared. Though my Mini AP is even faster. Until today. Suddenly this morning it started requiring 5 or...

backup battery

I'm about to upgrade the Sport SX that I installed years ago to an HXr. When I installed the Sport SX I also installed the Power Safe backup battery for backup power. On the EFIS Accessories documentation web page it indicates that this backup battery is for the Sport SX only; the TCW backup batteri...

Re: ADS-B vs. XM Weather

Jeff, do you have a time line for winds aloft? Does display type matter? I'm currently flying with a 2010-spec Sport SX and a new Mini-AP, planning to upgrade the former as soon as finances allow to an HXr.

Re: ADS-B tower indication on Mini AP

Followup: the "communications latency" I experienced turned out to be something else. I had also noticed that flight plans entered in one display didn't propagate to the other. Turns out that with dual displays one needs to be set as primary, something mentioned in the Sport SX setup guide...

Re: ADS-B tower indication on Mini AP

Interesting. So if I understand correctly that means if I want FIS-B weather I can get it on the Sport but not the Mini?

Also thanks for adding distance filtering for TIS-B. Most helpful.

ADS-B tower indication on Mini AP

I flew today for the first time with my new Mini AP. There seems to be a bit of communication latency between it and my Sport SX but I’m otherwise very happy with it. The display resolution is amazing. Besides the Sport SX I have a SafeFly GPS/Echo UAT providing ADS-B in/out to the Sport SX. Traffic...

Re: Remember recent waypoints on flight plan page

Thanks for that, I didn't realize that feature existed.

Remember recent waypoints on flight plan page

For example: If I want to enter a "direct to" flight plan in my Garmin Aera 510 (which I can select to drive my autopilot) there is a menu of recent waypoints available, saving me from entering commonly used waypoints manually. Considering my Sport SX always remembers my last flight plan a...

Fixed

Per Jeff, via email, in case anyone else stumbles on this: "If you have an NMEA0183 GPS input and Autopilot NMEA0183 output, the EFIS takes a short cut and passes the GPS data directly from the GPS to the autopilot. In this case, the Safe-Fly doesn't compute magnetic variation so that passes th...

Winds aloft from FIS-B

Sure would be nice...
