Thanks for the informative update Steve

If the G5 can output ADHARS info to a G3X system will you make it available to the Area 660 instead of the GDL52/ADSB solutions to give synthetic vision.

Thanks
Peter

Hello Peter,

That is certainly something to consider, but this data is currently only available over the G5 CAN bus interface.

Thanks,
Steve

Question for G3Xpert...

Aircraft configuration is GNS530, GAD29B, two G5's, GMU 11, 3rd party engine monitor (JPI EDM 830). Engine monitor is wired to provide its OAT to the GNS530 via RS232 serial link.

In this configuration, will the G5s be capable of getting OAT info from their connection to the GNS530, and thus be able to display OAT, TAS, etc? If so, how is this accomplished?

I'm seriously hoping the G5 will accept OAT via this source as I'd rather not have the airplane festooned with additional probes and laden with additional wiring.

Thanks for your help!

Hello CJ,

While the G5/GAD 29/GAD 13 shares SAT (OAT) data with navigators and transponders over the EFIS/Airdata ARINC 429 link, we don't think your 530 will share this data with the G5 system.

We have tested this with GPS 175, GNC 355, GNX 375, and GTN 6XX/7XX navigators and GTX 330(ES) and GTX 3X5 transponders, and they receive and use this data from the G5 system just fine.

We haven't tested with a non-WAAS GNS 530, but the installation manual suggests that it might also accept temperature data from the G5/GAD 29/GAD 13.

Thanks,
Steve

Sorry, now that I read your post I realize I left out a critical piece of data. Big DOH on my part! The GPS is a 530W (with terrain). Not sure if this makes any difference in the ultimate end state of the G5 being able to accept OAT from the 530W via A429?

Thanks for your helpful response, Steve.

Hello CJ,

No problem. I checked the output data for the 530W, and it appears to be like the other navigators mentioned previously.

It will receive and use air temperature data from several sources, but does not re-transmit the data on ARINC 429.

Thanks,
Steve

Thanks for double-checking, Steve.

The G3X Touch V8.40 Software which is required to utilize a standalone MFD with EIS as discussed in this thread is now available for download.

In addition to this capability, several additional new features were added.

Changes made from version 8.30 to 8.40:
  • Add support for G3X system configurations with no ADAHRS LRUs
  • Add interface to tune and control NAV radios
  • Add support for external navigator course selection via separate CDI instrument
  • Add ability to access Checklist page via MFD page navigation bar
  • Add Flight Plan Info button to Map and Chart pages
  • Add EIS data to Connext interface
  • Add alternative access to AFCS controls page via main menu
  • Improve GDU 470 Engine page when a single row of data bar fields are visible
  • Improve radio tuning page when radio field is not visible in data bar
  • Improve traffic display
  • General improvements to system operation
  • Includes update to G5 software version 6.30

While G3X Touch systems have supported user defined checklists since launch, customers have often asked that we allow the checklist to be one of the MFD pages accessible by turning the outer knob. This can now be enabled from the Display Setup page.

Additionally, some customers have asked that they be able to view and tune the NAV radio on the GDU, and we have added this capability now. There are two formats for displaying the NAV radio frequencies. There is a compact vertical button like shown below, and a side-by-side format like used for the COM frequencies. This NAV radio tuning support is currently only available for the SL 30 VHF/COM radio, but as soon as new software is available for the GTN 650/750 and GNC 255, those will also be supported.



Thanks,
Steve
Hi Steve,
Will the software update 6.30 referred to in the above post be made available to G5 owners.
Peter

Will this MFD functionality also work with the non touch screens?

Today Garmin announced new capabilities for G5 systems including the addition of the GAD 13 OAT probe interface to support the display of Outside Air Temperature (OAT), True Airspeed (TAS), and Density Altitude for single or dual G5 installations.

Additionally, G5 single/dual installations may now be installed with one or more GDU 450 (7" landscape), GDU 460 (10.6" landscape), or GDU 470 (7" portrait) MFD displays and an optional GEA 24 engine interface for additional capabilities (provided by the MFD) such as engine monitoring, flight planning, display of ADS-B traffic/weather, and even COM radio tuning without adding a full G3X Touch system. You can even add a GTR 20 remote COM radio with 2 place stereo intercom and music support and tune this radio from the MFD.

The MFD in a G5 system interfaces with Garmin IFR navigators to show flight plans and instrument approaches just like a G3X Touch system. Standalone flight planning and GPS navigation is provided by the WAAS GPS receiver built into the MFD.

The G5 system with MFD can easily be expanded to become a G3X Touch system with PFD and additional ADAHRS units added later if desired.

The new GAD 13 OAT probe interface module is $495 list with a GTP 59 OAT probe and connector kit, or $149 for the bare GAD 13 without the OAT probe. Several 3rd party OAT probes are supported like the OAT probes typically installed on Garmin transponders.

The new software and hardware to add the GAD 13 and/or the MFD with engine monitoring will be available in August, 2019.

Thanks,
Steve

Hello Bill,

The G5/MFD w/EIS type of installation described above requires one of the GDU 450/460/470 displays.

You can always install a standalone GDU 37X MFD with single/dual G5, and it can even be a VFR navigator for the G5 autopilot (like an Aera portable), but it can't have EIS capability without the other basic G3X components.



Let us know if you have additional questions.

Thanks,
Steve
