Re: DA and Missed Altitude buttons - Synthetic Aproaches

Thanks Jeff. That makes sense. Probably, after only seeing it the first time, I may have run through it properly, but then coming back to it later in the flight, when the buttons disappeared, it threw me for a loop and I tunneled on that, not noticing center dialog box.... I'll check it again. Thanks

DA and Missed Altitude buttons - Synthetic Aproaches

Yesterday, I was working on flying SAPs to my grass field - no Terpsed approaches for it, so I've loaded the runway info with user-data base file. No problems - the AP captures the extended runway line and flies me down the 3deg slope, and the Flight Director chevrons allow me to do it manually. Exc...

Re: HXr V7 software

I'm just cracking into the learning the IFR stuff on my HXrs now that Ive got close to 100hrs on my bird. I havent loaded the Proc version of the s/w yet, so just asking if the SNAP button made its way back into 8.01 build. I perused the change notes but didnt see it. Lots of changes in v8 alone - w...

Creating and loading userdb airports

I created the .txt doc for the userdb airports using the example in the miscellaneous files so I could shoot synthetic to my grass field. Neither my HXrs nor my Mini-X will load the .txt. They all say "unloadable". Load user database option is set to "yes". Below is my file, whic...

Green text upper left hand side - what is it telling me?

I see "TRAFFIC" and "ADSB-0 (or 1,2,3,4)" show up in this upper left side of the screen in Green text, near the AP boxes. I'm guessing the HXr is trying to tell me good things, but where can I read about this in the manuals? (I searched RevB and any of the other docs + HX docs, b...

Re: Navworx 600 + GNS480 + HXR

Works good now as described above, targets with N numbers etc..... specifically, I'm picking AltEnc1 off Serial8 at 9600 for the Navworx, and Serial 7 input is at 115200, Traffic Alerts. Getting all the traffic on the HXrs now, and still getting it on the 480 which is listening on the Arinc lines. I...

Re: Navworx 600 + GNS480 + HXR

Thanks Jeff, I have a -0013 Navworx and though it does have two display outputs, the #2 is the only one with TIS and if you hook it up, it kills both display outputs. I remember reading on line somewhere that thats a known issue - something that was never fixed and noone knew why they did that, just...

Re: Navworx 600 + GNS480 + HXR

Ah great thanks Jeff. Yes I have 2 HXrs and a Mini-AP in the panel plus the 480 so lots of screens (clearly no traffic on the mini...). I do love the 12" HxRs! Hopefully I can get to the hangar today to change/check the settings. Youre right; I havent been getting wx either, so that answers tha...

Navworx 600 + GNS480 + HXR

My Navworx box works good with my 480 on 9600 baud, which is all the 480 can stand. I get only occasional traffic on the HXr traffic inset, sometimes a brief flurry of hits with N numbers on the map page, then they all disappear, and are blank for long stretches of time tho I have solid hits on the ...
