    I've recently installed the ARINC module to allow the 4500s screen to command the autopilot (Vizion 385). I do not have an IFR navigator, so I just use the 4500 internal flightplan. I'm learning...

    Sitting on my desk it doesn't have a GPS signal connected, so it has the aircraft located at KRGK but annunciates "no gps". I can hook up a gps tonight and see if that allows it to display.
