    Uavionix Echo UAT --> AF-4500

    Can I display Traffic and Weather from an EchoUAT (http://www.uavionix.com/products/echo-uat/) on my Advanced Flight Systems AF-4500 EFIS moving map?

    Yep, use serial 1 or 3 at ADSB 115k.

    I asked this question on another thread, so ignore if you've already answered: My 4500 only has "ADSB/57K" - no adsb/115k option for serial port 3. I believe I have the latest firmware, is there another option I should be using? I've been through quite a few options but so far the 4500 does not seem to recognize the serial data from the echouat.

    Thanks!

    All I can add is when I had 4500s they could be and were set to ADSB 115k and worked well?

    Thanks - I discovered I did not have the latest firmware and once I updated it the adsb-115k option appeared. However the 4500 does not seem to see the data. I wired the echouat to the existing wiring the Navworx box had used - which was working when I upgraded - and previously when adsb was on but no towers/targets I would see a box on the 4500 saying ADSB: 0. With the echouat I don't see anything on the 4500 even when the wifi connection to Foreflight shows 1090ES targets (but no ADSB towers).

    So the two boxes for some reason are not communicating. Ah the joys of debugging data connections!

    Use CHECK -> MAINT -> ABOUT to see if your ADS-B Master. Then you should always see OSHIP messages counting up.

    You can also check:
    echoUAT setup to the correct serial port and GDL90 115.2K baud.
    Verify that you have XMWX Module Config OFFLINE.
