Re: Jeppesen Nav Database

I think Jeppesen does not include runway coordinates that they have not verified. I found the same thing at some local airports.

Re: Composite Video Input?

We use USB video adapters for the video input, but you have to use one that has been verified to work with the drivers in the HX. The ones we were using are no longer available. We found a replacement, but we are still working on the driver. The audio/video sync might be an issue while watching a DVD.

Re: Android Support for HX?

The Bluetooth USB dongle will feed PFD and engine data to the app. The Android Connect Module is only needed in order to work without a functional EFIS display unit. The first versions of HX and HXr software with Bluetooth and our app link support are ready and will appear on our web site in the bet...

Re: Garmin GDL39 ADSB Weather and Traffic support

The GDL39 starts with a baud rate of 9600. I looked at the data coming out of it, but I did not see any 330-compatible data. The data would fit right in, but it must need a message from the other end to turn it on.

Re: Jeppesen Nav Database

For the United States data, you won't notice a difference until we add support for more features. The Jeppesen IFR database contains approaches and other information that we intend to use later.

Re: sport ws and adsb in

It is not compatible. The SkyRadar units use USB to communicate with the display units. The USB connection does not work with the WS or HS models.

Re: Garmin GDL39 ADSB Weather and Traffic support

Unfortunately, the data coming out of it is not anything we recognize. It is trying to communicate using Garmin's serial format structure with undocumented message identifiers. I don't see any standard data embedded in there.

Re: AP Gain Settings

The gains can't be completely separated, and all of them are reacting at the same time to changing sensor data. Can you see what the EFIS is reacting to? If you don't know what's causing the problem, you have to experiment. You might find changing a more overall gain improves the performance in one ...

Re: NMEA GPS input not giving waypoint destination

I found the problem with the FLIGHT PLAN page in the software. The FLIGHT PLAN page in EXTERNAL or COPY mode will always try to use the external GPS1 flight plan first if GPS1 is set to External and Virtual GPS2 is Off. Only the FLIGHT PLAN page is affected. You should see the external GPS2 flight p...

Re: NMEA GPS input not giving waypoint destination

Most NMEA0183 GPS units with flight plans send out the GPRMB message at a minimum, which contains the active waypoint. Since you are not seeing anything, I would make sure "Virtual GPS2" is turned off in the SET MENU, General Setup. GPS2 Flight Plan Source should also be External. The baud...
