TT22 and Garmin 4x0W software

Postby Bobturner » Mon Mar 23, 2015 11:31 pm

I spoke with Trig recently, and they expect to release a software update soon that will let it accept a Garmin 4x0W series gps as a legal ADSB position source. GRT: Do you expect to add "Garmin ADSB+" as a choice for gps format, in the HX software controlling the Trig?

I was wondering about this.

Do you know how the plan for us to make the "update"?

ADS-B+ seems to NOT work on my GNS400W+TT-22.
Plain ole ADS-B seems to work but I have not had the tests done with that yet as the install of the 400W was rather recent.

Garmin's format 'ADSB' is poorly named as it turns out it does not contain all the required data. You need to use the 'ADSB+' format which in turn requires main operating sustem V5.03 and gps operting system V5.0. If you do not have them the software is free but you may need to pay a Garmin dealer for labor.
The upgrade to the TT22 to be able to read the Garmin ADSB+ is firmware. You will need to send the box to Colorado for the upgrade. Available in a few weeks, I was told.
Finally the HX or HXr will have to be able to tell the Trig to expect to use ADSB+ format. That needs a software upgrade from GRT.

Is this HXr software update in the works? Trig has released version 2.7 which includes a Garmin ADS-B+ protocol input from a GNS 4XX gps.

It's in the November 2015 releases: HXr software version 4, HX software version 8, SX software version 12a, and Mini software version 2a. The "Garmin ADS-B" GPS Input option supports the original and the plus version if your TT22 has updated firmware.

OOOPPPSS!!!

I thought that I had updated the Trig TT-22. I had not. I had updated the Trig TT-31 ONLY. The s/w was not ready when I wanted to do it.

So, I had to change back to regular ADS-B and **NOT** ADS-B+ for the moment.
