    OK, that's helpful, thanks. It makes sense because when I got that 5400 from you guys, that number had been set to the airplane's stall speed.

    Landing warning override ....

    I have an "AFS Pilot" autopilot, which was installed by the builder 10 years ago in conjunction with the AFS4500 with in-wing ports for the AoA system. When the 4500 died, I replaced it with a 5400...

    Contextual checklist pop-ups

    This is a simple question with a probably-simple answer that I just can’t seem to pull out of the manual.

    On my 5400, I routinely get checklists slide in to the right side of the screen at various...

    OK, no-joy. Let me ask it this way... my ADS-B out was working fine with the old AFS 4500/Crossbow. When I switched it out for the 5400 with SV network, the ADS-B is no longer getting barometric...

    ADS-B barometric altitude encoding problem

    Six months ago, I replaced my AFS4500 EFIS with an AFS 5400. After doing that, my avionics A&P noted a small static leak..OK for VFR, not IFR, he said. I then ran a PAPR and it showed a failure in...

    The pinouts are correct, and I do get change in displayed adval as the flaps move. So although electrical damage to the POS is possible, I'm more inclined to think that there might be some actual...

    No. I just checked it…the adval moves the same way as the display on the EFIS. That is, it doesn’t move smoothly/linearly throughout its range either. My previous 4500 didn’t do that. Is there a...

    As I work through the last stages of my 4500 -> 5400 upgrade, I note that I have a fuel flow reading of zero. Looking over the manual, I see that page 135 of the 15.1 install manual says:
