We need your help! What feature or Calibration item would you like to see a video produced for?

We're already planning to produce a video highlighting Fuel Tank Calibration and Autopilot Calibration.

I would like to see more information for dual screen set-up. Things like should the screens be plugged together when doing the mag cal? what about when doing the fuel tank cal etc Thanks. Don

I'd like to see the ending of the approach video. The transition to missed and the missed itself.

I'd like to see 3 videos:

1) Typical VFR flight from startup to shutdown. Show how the fuel computer works, how you can navigate with external GPS, use of the map. Different formats, etc.

2) Typical IFR flight - kind of the same thing, close to what you've done. Show a couple different approach types.

3) Overview of installation & software setup... including how to update firmware.

Thanks for asking!

Typical VFR use, basic functions, interaction between SL30 and GTX..., VOR/NDB tracking etc.
Essentially a beginners guide to glass cockpits!

There are a lot of features on the EFIS that are very easy to understand after going through the manual, but I would like to see a video on navigation through the EFIS. This seems to be the week point of most people. How to link flight plan routes from a 496 or other gps to show on the map. Would like more information showing the EFIS setup before departure and then navigating to waypoints with the autopilot. How to set up and navigate with the internal flight plan.
Thanks

We are working on it.

DITTO. The missed for the ILS approach. The transition from ILS back to GPS guidance for the holding pattern.

I too would really appreciate a video on the approach and miss approach procedures on the EFIS. (4500) Every time I do a practice approach ending in a missed approach, as soon as I hit suspend, the plane makes a 60* bank, heads for the hold but does not climb. Also is the autopilot/EFIS suposed to fly the published hold? I'm sure the problem is me.

on the garmin 430w at the MAP it automaticaaly goes into suspend. At this point i disengage autopilot and hand fly the missed approach procedure(climb/ turn). once the plane is stabilized i put the altitude in the EFIS that I'm climing to and the reengage the AP and take the 430 out of suspend. It will then fly the hold.

Currently the EFIS/AP is only following the missed approach from the GPS(430W/530W/GTN650). If the GPS tells the EFIS/AP to turn 60 deg to the right we are going to turn while we start the climb to the altitude bug setting. The EFIS/AP is only tracking what the GPS is telling it to do.

If the GPS is showing the rounded corners and dotted lines we should be following the gradual turn.

Rob,
If i do not disengage the autopilot at the MAP what will the AP do while the 430w is in suspend?

When you press suspend on the 430W the AP horizontal follows whatever the 430W is telling it to do, the vertical goes back to the altitude bug.

I agree with Don Patterson's idea. Is it possible to have an on-line simulator so one can practice using the equipment from home?
You might limit access to those that have purchased the equipment.

I agree with all the above. I'm at the point trying to learn to coordinate AFS3500s , 430w, and AFS autopilot to setup and fly approaches. So far I can make some of it work, but I feel I'm fumbling through the set up when I should be looking outside for traffic. The ILS video was a great start, but cut short for the missed approach. I'm still learning my way around the 430w which might make things easier later.

This is just going to take time to learn. Videos that show detail of the set up and execution of different approach scenarios including Radar vectors to final, missed approach, when to set Lat Nav vs Lat Arm, and using suspend on the 430w would be great. A simulator that coordinates with Garmins 430 sim would be even better but sounds complicated.

Where can the various videos that you were working on be found?

I agree with Don, I have an IFD 540 and would like to see a training video on how to integrate it with my 5800 to flight plan, navigate, and fly approach and missed approach. Thanks!

The ifd540 manual will show you how to flight plan but the 540 is nice that it will auto sequence (if setup is set to auto miss), then if cdi is selected on afs efis to ifd navigator, if wired correctly will show all flight plan sequence on flight plan page of efis to match ifd flt plan page. Bonus is autopilot coupling will sequence and fly approach in that mode.
