Re: Loading Geo-Ref plates

Okay, that means I can stop trying to learn Perl tonight. lol.
Ah that's to bad about the FAA support.
I'll stick to using Android tablet then for mapping.

Re: Loading Geo-Ref plates

Interesting. The free FAA approach plates (pdf) have been geo-referenced for a few years now. Their airport diagrams are still not though. I'm trying out a script for that process. Might have some outdated info here. http://grtavionics.com/home/navigation-database-updates/approach-plates-for-horizon...

Loading Geo-Ref plates

Can we load our own Geo-Ref plates? And by our own, I mean I can extract them from the Avare app. Which they are free there. Showing the airplane over the taxiway is a big bonus for me with the airport diagrams.

Are you expecting .tiff format? Same folder format as normal charts?

Re: Digital Magnetometer Calibration with Backup Analog Mini

Ok that make sense. I was wondering why when I calibrated the Mini, it would overwrite the HXr. I looked in the display link's settings to stop the mag sharing, but never thought to turn it off completely when doing the calibrations. I'll do that this weekend. I don't know why, I assumed the Mini-AP...

Digital Magnetometer Calibration with Backup Analog Mini

I'm curious how to go about this. I have HXr with adaptive ahrs attached to the digital mag. Also have Mini-AP with it's own analog mag. I'm guessing I want to keep the calibrations separate, so in a power failure the mini-ap will still work standalone. Does the analog mag have all the fancy self le...

Re: Squelch setting

I've played around with the settings but they don't seem to do anything on either Com1 or 2. Is there any way to test this, to see if the commands are changing the device ? TY91.1 SW 1.10 FPGA 1.0 That's an error in the manual, probably copied from the other com manuals. The TY91 doesn't have a full...

Re: Inter-Display link protocol documented

Start of this post, Jeff talks about the char stuffing. Basically if you see 0x7D 0x5E then replace both hex bytes with 0x7E. If you see 0x7D 0x5D then replace both hex bytes with 0x7D. Do checksum after this step. Are you using Arduino software? They have a library called FastCRC16 for checksum tha...

Re: Magnetometer Calibration

I'm kind of in the same boat. I have an HXr with digital mag behind bulkhead, and Mini-AP with analog mag in wing tip. The digital mag is great, but the wingtip mag seems to always be off everytime I do it. I think there is issues having both units turned on, that it's mixing up calibrations. What i...
