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...

Checklist Help

I've been using the checklist feature for years. Yesterday I tried to import a revised checklist without success. On the checklist page I select IMPORT and the EFIS says reading USB drive. I see the light on the drive flashing. As I recall, the EFIS says reading CHECKLIST.TXT and then after some tim...

Re: Manifold Pressure Issue

Afif, Is the manifold pressure reading the same on your EIS and your HXr? Is your EIS located in the rear near your engine? Does the manifold pressure change on it when you turn on the alternator? You say the reading is normal at 22.2. That seems pretty low to me. Is that on the ground (what is the ...

Re: Two Wire CHT Leads on Rotax 912 & Legacy 3

Skot, The Legacy 3 EIS has two CHT inputs. Usually with a Rotax, GRT supplies a ring style CHT sensor which you attach to the cylinder head using the temp sensor supplied by Rotax like a bolt. You can also just take out the Rotax sensors and use metric bolts to attach the ring style thermocouples. G...

Re: Stratux ADS-B Reeceiver

Sometimes I get a"Serial 4 input missing" message indicating that my Stratux isn't communicating with my Sport HS. Today that was a problem since there was a lot of weather and the EFIS was not communicating with Stratux (the input counter was not changing) so I had no weather display. I h...

Re: Oil Tank Fluid Level

John,
If you have a spare aux input available on your EIS, it wouldn't be all that difficult to use that and make Low Oil appear on your Sport screen. Let me know if you need help.

Re: Set Limits Problem

Jim, I have the same problem with the display being difficult to read. I recall someone at GRT telling me the cause is not releasing both buttons simultaneously when entering the Settings Pages. I think the problem has gotten worse with time (my EIS is about 10 years old). What I do now is power up ...

Re: Oil Tank Fluid Level

John, I found in my Lockwood Rotax catalog (p 34 582 oil injection tank) that the tank is equipped with a 956 360 oil level indicator. When I searched on the Lockwood site, it appears that part number is a switch that is actuated by the oil level. If you call Lockwood, they can verify that. Probably...
