Data from HXr

Postby gdtrfb58 » Mon Nov 21, 2016 6:08 pm

I have an HXr and am considering adding a Mini AP as a second screen.
Since there are only 2 Serial ports on the Mini, I would hope that Most info is shared? After the interdisplay link (1 serial) and AP (ARINC), no room.

What exactly is shared over the inter-display link?
Flight Plan (I see this in the documentation)
ADS-B traffic? Weather?
TIS-B weather
XM- Weather
GPS data (external? GRT?)
Radio Tuning?
Trig T-22 control?

Can Mini display check lists?
Will the ability to display VFR/IFR charts/procedures (e.g Seattle Avionics) be added?
