Re: Skyradar D2...

Thank you Jeff. I must have a bad setting and will check. I've only had the plane for a year now and I'm still learning everything. Will the outlines show when using Seattle Avionics charts?

Re: Skyradar D2...

This thread is old and I found a second one referring to the same request to show TFR information on the DU. What I don't see is a response that it has been added. I have an HX and I use Seattle Avionics Charts in Map mode along with a SkyRadar DX. I do not get TFR information on the HX, but it does...

Re: SKYRADAR D2 weather on HX-HS system

Everything worked exactly as planned in the air. The new serial port on the SkyRadar D2 fed data to the HS as hoped. Now there's no need to change screens back and forth on the HX from PFD to Map, but it's still on the HX if I need it. Of course the D2 is also still broadcasting the data via WIFI to...

Re: SKYRADAR D2 weather on HX-HS system

Sorry for the darkness . . . I have a job and it pays for this new toy . . . so you know the priority! Responding to Jeff's last post, I checked all of the settings on the HX and HS and nothing had a value of "USB WX Processor Repeater". However, Jeff also thought there might be an XM Proc...

Re: SKYRADAR D2 weather on HX-HS system

Jeff . . . thank you for chiming in. I have owned the plane for two months now and have pinged the 3 prior owners to determine exactly what mods they have made to the avionics. I did not get a wiring diagram or pinout table for any of the avionics, so I’m slowly trying to map everything. With that, ...

Re: SKYRADAR D2 weather on HX-HS system

Jeff . . . thank you. I happened to go out to the plane yesterday and was able to dial in 230400 just as you point out, so I'm feeling pretty good about this right now. If you could help me with one more question, I'll be good. Port #1 is currently set to 115200bps and Input and Output is set to Wea...

Re: SKYRADAR D2 weather on HX-HS system

Okay . . . that's all I need to give this a try. I bought the plane completed, so I'll need to figure out what's connected to ports 1 and 2 and move them. Hopefully neither is something that requires high speeds. I'll report back after it's all put back together.

Re: SKYRADAR D2 weather on HX-HS system

I emailed Alexy again today and he reconfirmed 230400bps. At 256k, that covers SkyRadar's speed. I'm still looking to understand Jeff's comment earlier in this thread regarding a "high speed" port. Hopefully he'll kick in on that subject. This could be a great option for those using the la...

Re: SKYRADAR D2 weather on HX-HS system

Jeff . . . I spoke to Alexy at SkyRadar and he will add "serial out" to my D2 for a lab fee of just $40. He wanted me to confirm that my HS can support a baud rate of 230400bps. I cannot find within GRT's documentation where maximum baud rates are discussed for the HS. In one of your prior...
