    Thanks for the input. I've got all the physical stuff, and the wiring, done successfully. I did get position lock (plane is not yet flying) by folowing Shawn's advice on Main Talker. As I mentioned...

    Excellent; exactly what I need to move forward. Many thanks!
  3. Thanks; that would make wiring more convenient,...

    Thanks; that would make wiring more convenient, but wiring isn't the problem. I'm now wired like this:

    AHRS Port 0: Crossbow
    Serial Port 1: AVTN/ARNAV to GNS430 (non-WAAS)
    Serial Port 2:...

    OK, after obtaining a configurable gps receiver 'puck' (and months of distractions), I'm back with further questions.
    I've configured the 4500 as shown in Shawn's post #6, with the gps wired to...
  5. Thanks! Got it.

    Thanks! Got it.
  6. Are you talking about the autopilot ARINC source...

    Are you talking about the autopilot ARINC source select switch? If so, can you elaborate on why it's no longer needed? Is there another way to select the source? (This is for a 4500sEE.)

    Thanks,...
  7. EFIS expansion connector in Main vs ARINC drawings

    When I wired the ARINC, I obviously used the Ex. Conn. pinout shown on the ARINC drawing, with serial #4 GND to pin 5. As I prepared wiring for a spare GPS puck (needs power from the 5V terminal in...

    Thanks Rob; I'm beginning to get a clearer idea of how it all works together.

  9. Excellent! I'll start the search for a serial out...

    Excellent! I'll start the search for a serial out GPS puck I can use to feed the EFIS on serial #2, NMEA/ICARUS 9600 baud.

    I'm going to show some more of my non-IFR-rated ignorance.

    Some time...

    That sounds great, but I currently have only one screen. If I move the Pilot serial source to EFIS port 3 (out), does that leave me any option for both the 430 and a second GPS to feed the EFIS? I...

    Hi Shawn,

    Thanks for jumping in.

    I'd love to find a tutorial on the relationship (similarities, differences, co-dependencies) between serial ports and ARINC. That might help me a bit with what...

    I'm working on that now. I only had a few variations. At this point, I suspect that it's mostly overlooked items, instead of deviations. I'll keep you updated via email.

    Thanks,

    Charlie

    Thanks, Larry. No joy on the factory harness; I've rolled my own. I think my confusion started many months ago, reading about using both the ancient 430's gps data (for IFR legality) and the...

    Sorry to dig up old threads, but trying to learn about features/uses/etc.

    If the AFS Pilot must have ARINC to navigate, what's the gps input on pin 17 for? Just to tell the AP the compass heading...

    Thanks, Bob; that sounds like good news. What about using both with a single screen, where the gps nav data enters via ARINC & position/screen updates come from the external puck via the serial port?...

    I'm confused by this thread. In reading other threads, it seemed that it was possible to use a Garmin 430 (non-WAAS) for nav and a separate, higher data-rate WAAS GPS 'puck' into serial port #1 for...
