Re: Drink holder -- what works?

I bought one from the Diamond display at Oshkosh last year that I think is about 20 or 24 ounces and is narrow enough at the bottom to fit in the cup holder. However, it's not insulated and the drink spout is really narrow so most of the time I find myself just keeping an insulated thermos in the po...

Re: Garmin G-1000 ADS-B solution?

Harry,
Does your Bluetooth connection on your iPad consistently work or are you experiencing signal issues from the front of the cockpit in flight?

Re: B-Kool Portable A/C

This may be a little off-topic but I'm fairly sure the aux power outlet in my DA40 is 12VDC not 24VDC. I will put a meter on it next time I'm out there but I recall it being placarded "12VDC GROUND OPS ONLY". I assume there is a 24VDC-12VDC converter behind the panel or maybe built into th...

Re: G1000 SD-Cards wont release

Colin, Do you just update the NavData or are you able to update airport directory, flitecharts, etc. using the top slot? For what it's worth the Fly Garmin install does say to use the top slot card for NavData and bottom slot card for the rest but I have been able to update both the NavData and ever...

Re: Non-WAAS G1000 -- ADS-B Future

Tim, The weather is all ADS-B as I do not have XM installed. My DA40 has the WAAS G1000 with the latest software versions available. I am not sure if the weather works on non-WAAS G1000s. I believe I do recall reading that the software version available for the non-WAAS G1000 may not support the wea...

Re: G1000 SD-Cards wont release

I just had the problem with the bottom card in my PFD not releasing. I will try the small screwdriver when I go back to the airport. I've been updating the PFD and MFD databases by removing the cards from the lower slots and doing the update on both cards from the Garmin website. Does anyone know if...

Re: Non-WAAS G1000 -- ADS-B Future

Colin, I can confirm that the GTX345 bluetooth connection does not support flight plan transfer, it just makes the same ADS-B data available on the iPad that you would get from a Stratus. (including airmets/sigmets/pireps that can't be seen on the G1000) I'm told you need to get the Flightstream to ...

Re: Non-WAAS G1000 -- ADS-B Future

The install took the shop 2 full days and several phone calls to Garmin but all seems to be working well after several cross-country trips. Here are my observations: I believe someone else mentioned this, but I definitely suggest being around when the shop gets to the configuration phase of the inst...

Re: Non-WAAS G1000 -- ADS-B Future

Thanks. They started this morning and expect to complete the installation tomorrow. The GPS/ADS-B antenna will mount to a bracket that will be epoxied inside the fuselage, to the top behind the aft baggage compartment. I understand the bracket is similar (maybe the same) as the bracket used for the ...
