View Full Version : AF-Pilot & AF-GPS

I'm putting together a system with AF-6500, AF-Pilot, AF-GPS, & ARINC.
The AF-GPS will be the only GPS in the system.

My question is about the serial port on the AF-Pilot. Should I wire the
serial output of the AF-GPS to the AF-Pilot serial input? Will I have any issues
controlling the AF-Pilot with bugs and flight plans in the EFIS using
only the ARINC interface?

Dan, you should parallel into the RS-232 TX wire from the AF-GPS and run it into the autopilot. Otherwise everything will work just fine as far as bugs controlling the autopilot. The only limitation you will have is filing /G or conducting GPS approaches.

Thanks Trevor,
This is a VFR-only plane so I'm good to go.
