    I haven't seen any responses from the AFS folks so I'll give it a crack. I have been flying with the AFS 5600 screens for about 18 months and as far as I know, it's automatic. There may be a built-in...

    Thanks, Jonathon. I see references to SV in my configuration. Does that mean that there is likely an SV Network already present (for other components) or will I need something like SV-NET-HUB to plug...

    Thanks, Jonathon!

    I actually haven't looked behind my panel yet (and don't know how the various components are wired) so I have a possibly trivial question - regarding the SV-Network hub, would...
  5. Baro altitude not getting sent from AFS to Avidyne IFD

    Hello,

    I bought my RV-10 about 18 months ago with 2xAF-5600 and an Avidyne IFD540 Navigator. I had noticed that I have to manually sequence missed approaches which have an altitude restriction and...

    Software update Vx16.10.31

    Hi Jonathon,

    Thanks for the pointer to the new version. The update instructions mention that the ARINC Out speed from the GPS Navigator needs to be changed. Is this specific to this update...

    Software update Vx16.10.25-TOUCH-MV16

    Hi Jonathon,

    It looks like a new version just got posted on the AFS Software Updates page. I don't use my AF-5600 for the audio panel nor am I using any of the devices for which support has been...

    Thanks, Jonathon!

    It looks like the second part of my post got chopped off so here it is:

    Looking at the video that I captured from a flight, it looks like the donut turns green as soon as I...
  9. Questions about AoA calibration and display

    I have an RV-10 with 2xAF5600 (which I bought). The previous owner did the AoA calibration both for flaps up and (fully) down (donut is black vs. green). The flaps down calibration was done with the...
  10. Can older AF-5600 screens be upgraded to the new CPU

    Hi Jonathon, I had posted this question in response to a post from Rob on the VAF Forum. I thought I would post it here too.

    Thanks,

    Vas


    I have two AF-5600 screens (circa 2016) in my...

    Thanks, Jonathan!

    To follow up on my question, it looks like the best way to move to VFPL mode would be to set a VFPL profile for the current leg once I reach cruise altitude and then change to...

    Questions about VFPL functionality

    I am trying to better understand how VFPL works on my AF-5600 to be able to arrive at a pattern (or other) altitude using a reasonable rate of descent.

    It looks like the simplest way to use VFPL...

    The very first time I tried it, the flight plan from FF went to the IFD as intended. Ever since then, I have not been able to replicate it - the AF-5600 grabs it. I tried restarting Foreflight,...

    AF-5600 autopilot issues

    Hello,

    As I mentioned in a couple of other posts, I just bought an RV-10 with 2xAF-5600, an IFD540 and a Trutrak Vizion 385 AP.

    The previous owner had set the plane up to fly from the right...

    Thanks, Jonathan! I do like the idea of a dedicated AP control panel as well as the VFPL and IAS modes but since I just started flying the plane, I'll give myself some time with the TruTrak and see...

    Thanks, Jonathan. I don't want to turn off the Wifi on the EFIS but I guess I could have the Avidyne broadcast it's own network and connect to that when I want to push a flight plan to the Avidyne...

    Thanks, Jonathan. If I wanted to replace the TruTrak with the Skyview Autopilot (with a panel mounted head-end), what are the components that would need to be changed along with approximate labor...
  21. How do I prevent AF-5600 from grabbing flight plan from Foreflight?

    Hello,

    I just acquired an RV-10 with 2xAF-5600 and an Avidyne IFD540. As best as I can tell, the AF unit is set up as the host WiFi with the IFD unit as a client on it. I have connected my iPad...

    I just acquired an RV-10 with 2xAF-5600, Avidyne IFD540 Navigator and a Trutrak Vizion 385 AP. Is it possible to have the AP automatically follow VFPL altitudes either from an internal flight plan on...
