Re: Mode after missed approach

The mode can be changed after lateral (localizer) capture. Once the lateral has been captured, the default will be to switch to heading mode on a missed approach, but you can select GNAV after the lateral is captured to change that.

Re: Voltage Readings

Analog inputs are extremely low current, and even if you shorted 100 volts through a 240 ohm resistor that's only 0.42A. I don't see how the fuse blew.

Re: Horizon 10.1 install

The EFIS (10.1 in your case) and EIS have separate warnings. If you have a Remote EIS (R66) then the EIS warning light is about low oil pressure only. If you have an EIS with LCD then the warning light activates for all of the limits configured in its menu. There is no cross-communication about limi...

The GPS175 pins are on the J1751 connector. RS-232 connection GPS175 Pin 9 (RS-232 OUT 1) -- any serial in...

Re: Horizon 10.1 install

The GPS175 has multiple RS232 outputs. You will configure one output for the "Aviation Output 1" format to send to the GRT Horizon and probably TruTrak. The "Aviation" format is published and well-known. You will configure another output for "ADS-B+ Format 1" to send to...

Re: Foreflight/Jeppesen data into sport

Their navigation database product is/was called NavData. In the past, the only GRT system labels they had in their order system were "Sport SX" and "Horizon HX", so sometimes you had to tell them you want NavData for a GRT Sport SX to start the order process. The SX and EX (and c...

Re: Update files

That's a 10.1 update file. The 10.1 is not an HXr, although it has a lot of features and graphics in common. The HXr support page was moved to the "legacy" menu to separate it from the new 10.1 product.

Re: Auto Pilot Back Tracking?

If you completely passed the waypoint it should have sequenced to the next waypoint even if the autopilot was disengaged. If you didn't pass all the way then it will try to get you back on course, and you will have to tell it to resume the next leg with the Set Leg button, or go directly from your c...

Re: App Stuck?

Because HUD devices have limited user input, our app defaults to full-screen HUD mode. You can swipe down from the top or swipe up from the bottom to get your Android navigation buttons to appear. Then press the back button. This should take you to the main menu. Then push Menu to edit the settings ...
