    I suspect you have some other issue going on causing the lock up. I'm not experiencing that symptom on my 5500. Are you on the current software release?

    New ADSB data fields

    Is there a published schedule when AFS will support the new ADSB weather data fields and be able to display them on the 5000 series? If no schedule, what's the goal?

    Interesting. I fly LPVs several times a month and haven't noticed any issues. It appears that the symptom may be unique to the Avidyne. But then a sampling of one GTN is hardly conclusive.
