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

If you simply downloaded the GRT files they should work. Have you played the wav files on your computer? Take the USB that you have plugged into your HX and plug it into your computer and check that they play OK. Also, in the audio settings, if I recall correctly there is a setting for the alert ton...

Re: TRIO PRO GPSS/GPSV

I dropped a note to the support email, but it comes down to two basic questions

1) Is the ARINC out of the HX supposed to always send GPSS signals?

2) My GNAV mode is greyed out. What can cause that (I have the external flight plan from my GTN650 displaying on the Hx)?

Re: TRIO PRO GPSS/GPSV

I to to Trio, and they said it should still work as long as I was getting ARINC data out of the EFIS. Sine this I put is shared with the GTN650, I can see the labels on its diagnostics screen. They told me to look for the 121 and 135 labels. I see 121 but not 135. Any ideas as to why?

Re: TRIO PRO GPSS/GPSV

That is exactly what my Approach wiring switch does, it swaps the ARINC signals, but not the RS232 GPS signal. That stinks. I'll reach out to Tim.

TRIO PRO GPSS/GPSV

Quick question. I"m setting up my Trio AutoPilot soon (finally), and it seems to get ARINC data from my GTN650 fine, when I program an approach the Trio GPSS blue lamp blinks, but when I flip the source to my GRT I don't get that light (I have the Approach Fast Stack wiring harness, so they wired th...

Dual AHRS swap to adaptive questions

A couple of quick questions on this upgrade. First, I see the new dual unit only has one set of pitot/static ports. Is this true of the upgrade units as well? It's probably not a problem, but would be slightly simpler if it had the same connections as the one it's replacing. Second, I have never qui...

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

I've updated the file on my website with (I'm pretty sure) is the working smaller set on my system. I have done several, so if these don't work let me know and I'll pull the USB from the DU and copy them, but I think this is the right set. http://www.velocityxl.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=8420&d...

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

I must've posted the 32 bit version, I'd downgraded them and loaded in mine and they work. I'll grab my USB and upload the others when I get a chance, but I just Googled text-to-speech free and downloaded my favorites.

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

I have gotten mine working. I changed them from Stereo to mono, and 32 bit to 16 bit, which seems to have resolved my issue. Interestingly, it seems that the system may read the USB drive even after copying the wav files to the DU. I didn't prove that to myself, but I did see the odd behavior, the "...
