Re: Mini-AP not showing traffic & setting com freq

We just already have other indicators crammed into every corner of the map page (depending on modes and inputs). On all the EFIS models without a dedicated remote indicator area (everything except the HXr and 10.1) the XPDR box is only on the PFD.

Re: Mini-AP not showing traffic & setting com freq

The Mini software doesn't really know how to handle Trig coms so that looks like the issue. What pop-up do you mean? If HXr has transponder control it should let you adjust the transponder code on the map page. If you have Mini transponder control the Mini would only display and adjust it on the PFD.

Re: Mini-AP not showing traffic & setting com freq

I will have to e-mail you the OP1 code then. I will need your Mini serial number from the upper right corner of the Option Codes page. I probably have it from the service but I need the correct number to get the correct code. The display serial link is limited but does include traffic. Traffic is li...

Re: configurable GPS, take 2

The EFIS mainly wants GPRMC or GNRMC. It will also use GPGGA or GNGGA for altitude and a few others for status but those don't help the autopilot. Sentences where X is not "P" are new sentences for multi-system satellite tracking that aren't part of the original standard and may not be sup...

Re: Mini-AP not showing traffic & setting com freq

Originally Mini units didn't have traffic display capability. Does the Mini have Option Package 1 (Feature Set 1)? Check SET MENU, Display Unit Maintenance, Option Codes. The Mini can send frequencies over the display link but there's a possibility it doesn't understand the com setup with the more c...

Re: TRIG 22 Squat switch

If the EFIS is controlling the TT22, then you can set the Squat Switch to "AHRS and GPS data" in the SET MENU, General Setup, TT22/echoUAT page.

If you have a separate TT22 control head, then you can set the Squat Switch to use GPS data in its menu.

Re: Garmin GPS175

Pins 3 and 4 are another receive channel on the ARINC module. You won't be using those pins. Normally they are used for the VOR/ILS output of a 430W or similar unit. Pins 8 and 9 on the other connector are optional in case you are out of RS232 serial ports on the display and need to connect somethin...

Re: Stratux wired connection - I must be doing something wrong...

I don't see anything unusual there. Are the switches on the Stratux serial adapter set correctly? Switch 1 should be On, Switch 2 should be Off, and the separate switch should be on the 232-TTL side. You should be using the 232T pin to connect to the EFIS, not the TXD pin.

Re: Stratux wired connection - I must be doing something wrong...

What matters is that the baud rate matches and the EFIS input is set to "ADS-B". There's no EFIS "Stratux" output yet, that was put there as a future possibility. Just leave the output Off for now. If your Stratux is powered by a battery (no system power), you may need a ground b...
