Re: ADS-B suppression question

Thanks. I received a very good reply and explanation on VAF forums. Essentially as you say, the Dual receiver hooks via USB to the HXr and the GRT software then does all the suppression once USB ADS-B is turned on in the HXr setup.

ADS-B suppression question

Regarding ADS-B receiver installation, some are hardwired and some transmit via Bluetooth or WiFi. For the portables that function via wirelessly, how does the suppression function work?

GRT backup battery mounting limitations?

Are there any limitations on the mounting orientation of the GRT backup battery? I'd like to mount it vertically in the RV-8 aft fuselage behind the baggage compartment.

single OAT probe for 2 boxes?

Wondering if I can use a single OAT probe and splice the lines together for 3 boxes... EIS and 2 AHRS?

Also, manual mentions protecting OAT wire runs from radios, ignition, etc. Mine may run in a bundle with pitot heat and the magnetometer wiring runs. Is this a problem?

Thanks as always
Jeff

Re: EIS audio out

Thnx. I am mounting the EIS on the panel, but an iPad ( or Android tablet if that comes to fruition) will overlay it when I need charts & pubs ( or a movie).

Will the HXr have a similar ACK function? Or maybe an input for a remote ack switch?

Re: N687MS RV Super 8 Panel Team AeroDynamix

Thanks for that information - very helpful. Do you, by chance, have a photo of your radio stack mount behind the panel that you'd be willing to post? I have a similar stack mounted right at the edge of the panel like yours, but it's complicated and not easily removable for maintenance. Thanks again

Re: N687MS RV Super 8 Panel Team AeroDynamix

Where did you mount the EIS display? Can you post details/photo of the HXr tilt bracket?
I am currently wiring up HXr & EiS in RV-8.
