Re: secondary power input and auto startup/shutdown

To prevent the Hx from hanging up or rebooting due to voltage sag during engine start up GRT recommends using an external backup battery on one of the power inputs. TCW Technologies makes several different ones of varying capacities. I initially installed the 3 amp BU battery version with my GRT EFI...

Re: Auto Pilot Back Tracking?

Use the flight plan “Set Leg” function to select the next leg of the flight plan, then reengage the AP. The active leg is displayed in magenta.

Re: GNS430 flight plan not displayed on cross side Hx

What I learned from trying different configuration settings during a flight today: Jeff’s recommendation to set the “GPS from ADS-B Receiver” configuration setting to ‘NO’ fixed my issue. The GPS1 external flight plan would display on the cross side (passenger side) display after doing this. Disabli...

Re: GNS430 flight plan not displayed on cross side Hx

Jeff, Your last suggestion comment is where I think my problem is. The “GPS from ADS-B Reciever” configuration option is worded very confusing, at least for me. The clarification note info that is displayed at the bottom of the screen for this option reads, “If the ADS-B receiver has it’s on, indepe...

Re: GNS430 flight plan not displayed on cross side Hx

Hi Bob. If I had started out with the HX displays originally, I probably would have followed the GRT recommendation, but I upgraded to the HX units from Sport HS displays which were serial port limited (only 4) and one port on the MFD was dedicated to the internal GPS. But I don’t recall having this...

GNS430 flight plan not displayed on cross side Hx

I have two Hx displays and two GPS receivers. GPS 1 is a Garmin GNS 430W and GPS 2 is the ADAHRS internal GPS. GPS 1 is connected to the pilot side Hx and GPS 2 is connected to the passenger side Hx. GPS 1 is configured as ‘external’ flight plan and GPS 2 is configured as ‘internal’ flight plan. Whe...

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

I have the audio output of one GRT Hx connected to an unswitched audio input on my Audio Panel. I am using the .wav audio files that RV-HXr made available. Both displays were recently updated to the latest software (vers 11.01). The only audio warning that I don't hear is "TRAFFIC and this is the on...

Android App - User Defined Waypoints

Add the ability to create user defined (lat/long) way points in the Android Application. A single format format for creating the waypoint ex: degrees, decimal minutes would be adequate. Update 1/24/2019: Here is a work around that allows you to implement user defined waypoints into flight plans that...

Re: ARINC 429 Channel Port configuration for HXr

Pretty sure the Hxr is the same as the Hx for the ARINC 429 configuration. It's in the Set Menu under General Setup. The setting option used to configure the ARINC is the "Arinc Module Connected" setting. If you can't find a details in the Hxr manuals, download the HX, HS & WS Set Up & Configuration...

User Defined Waypoints

Is it possible to create a USER defined waypoint when creating a flight plan in the App? I like using the android app a lot and it would be really nice to be able to insert my own way points when building a flight plan in the App rather than have to go in and edit the flight plan via the EFIS menu a...
