Re: GRT Remote app for Android now available!

"To use it with your EFIS system, you will need a few things: 1. A Bluetooth USB dongle (verified models are listed on the Software pages for HX and HXr) 2. The Bluetooth-enabled beta software for HX/HXr 3. The GRT Remote App" Dragging this thread back to the present... I'd like to try out...

Re: uAvionix EchoUAT/SkyFyx (generic) interface to GRT HX?

Who'da thunk I'd be frustrated by simplicity. ;-)

Many thanks; I'll get it up and running tomorrow.

uAvionix EchoUAT/SkyFyx (generic) interface to GRT HX?

Well, during a brain lock session, I ordered (and received, unboxed, and mounted) a generic uAvionix EchoUAT with their SkyFyx GPS, instead of the GRT-specific package with the SafeFly2020/serial expander. Unfortunately, I find no docs anywhere that tell me whether my GRT HX can have any control ove...

Re: Stratux ADS-B Reeceiver

FWIW, I 'remoted' my gps module with a short usb extension cable, which made room for the cable for the usb>serial converter. I used a right-angle cable in mine & added another 'exit port'. I have what's probably one of the older gps modules (and likely, older SDRs as well), and the gps won't ge...

Will do. Thanks for the great support! I'm really enjoying this 'old technology' EFIS. :-)

configurable GPS, take 2

Hi, I have a ublox GPS puck as GPS1. I originally configured it with a stripped down 'sentence' set, because I could only run it at 9600 baud with one update per second on another system. Sentences are: GXGGA, GXGSA, GXGSV, and GXRMC. I now have it installed as GPS1 on my Horizon HX, still at 9600 b...

Re: secondary power input and auto startup/shutdown

Thank you both for the info. After reading your answers, I re-read 6.2, 'power connections' & finally picked up the 'isolated' term in the description; that simplifies the brownout/sag cure. It's also good to know that I don't have to wait the entire 2 minutes to move the plane. 30 seconds isn't...

secondary power input and auto startup/shutdown

Hi, I've got a new-to-me HX in my RV6 (along with a Mini GA), and while the Mini seems immune to voltage sag during engine start, the HX is not. Occasionally it will continue its boot process through engine cranking, but typically hangs during boot, so I'm forced to cycle power to the electrical bus...

Re: Stratux ADS-B Reeceiver

Thanks, Jeff. I've downloaded the zip file, and I'm also in the process of updating the Statux software to the current 2.x I have a few adapters, etc lying around; I may play with wifi adapters, etc just to see what might work. If I discover something new, I'll post it here.
