Re: Altitude Encoding

Thanks Jeff and Bob. It looks like I will be fine as I have it configured.

This information would be useful in the GRT Equipment Supplements document. I had no idea that my GRT would have the accuracy to use the higher resolution setting in the ESG.

Altitude Encoding

I have had my Sport HS EFIS providing altitude information to my GNS430 and GTX327 using the Fuel/Air Data Z Format for many years. I have now replaced the GTX327 with an Appareo ESG transponder. It does not accept the Fuel/Air Data Z Format. I found that if I use the Trimble/Garmin encoding altimet...

Re: EIS 6000, 12V Regulated, Multi-201B Option

I am using that for two FlowScans and also two Hall effect current sensors with no problems.

Jeff,

Thanks for the explanation and update. I'm glad to know there is a solution in hand and will look forward to the HS software revision!

Re: Stratux ADS-B Reeceiver

Jeff, Using my Stratux with the original version of Stratux software (as described in the GRT Supplement) displaying on my Sport HS display, the Traffic Alert Filter doesn't seem to work. I have it set at 2000 ft and I see traffic that is over 6000 ft below me. I'll double check the setting, since t...

Re: Internal GPS problem

The internal GPS plugs into a board in the EFIS. You might try opening the case and reseating it.

My internal GPS sometimes works and sometimes doesn't too! I just rely on my GNS 430 GPS.

Re: Fuel flow programming with a SDSEfi system

Rob,

When GRT used Floscan senders, model 201B, the starting Flo Cal setting was 200. That transducer outputs about 32000 pulses per Gallon at 16 gph.

From this just make it proportional, maybe about 150.

Re: Internal GPS problem

Try setting the gps on the right EFIS to GPS2. There may be a conflict with both being named GPS1. Is the serial counter on the right Efis counting? (In General Setup you should see the counter) There is a way to view whether the internal gps is "seeing" satellites. I think it is on the Di...

Nav Data include Canada?

In planning for a couple flights to Canada this summer, I'm wondering if the free US database includes any Canadian airports or airspace? I'm guessing the Map pages will show the magenta line and probably the Canadian endpoints of the line but no other airport or airspace data. Is that correct? I've...

Re: Stratux ADS-B Reeceiver

Jeff, I am updating to the latest version software on my Stratux and will include the CP2102 serial chip set. My old GRT XM weather used 115200 baud. The CP2102 chip will allow me to set the baud rate to my GRT. Should I use a high rate like 115200 rather than the low rate (38400) required by the ol...
