Default Advanced Flight EFIS Software Release

Advanced Flight Systems just posted our long-awaited Version 15 software release for the AF-5000 series of EFIS screens, which includes a number of new features:
• Improved graphics.
• Ability to use a Garmin G5 as the backup ADAHRS. The new software even does ADAHRS cross- checking between the Dynon ADAHRS and the G5 ADAHRS.
• New Airspeed filtering algorithm improves the airspeed display in turbulence
• New AHRS filtering algorithm.
• Ability to tune and push frequencies to an Avidyne IFD radio from the EFIS.
• Ability to tune and push frequencies to a Garmin radio (GTR200, GTR255, GTR225) from the EFIS.
• Ability to send ADS-B weather and traffic to the Avidyne IFD Navigator display.
• Improved integration with the PS Engineering PDA-360 Remote Audio panel with Bluetooth phone and music.
• Remote MFD map control from the PFD Joystick. When displaying a map on the PFD, the joystick will control the remote MFD map.
• EFIS Inset Windows (profile view, flight plan, traffic, map, g-meter).
• Display Sectional, IFR Low or IFR High charts in Track Up or North Up
• Added Nexrad WX to Sectional chart.

WOW! Absolutely speechless! What an amazing set of features. Especially impressed with the cooperation on the Garmin G5, crossing the boundaries of competition for the sake of safety.

I feel like I'm stuck in the dark ages with my Skyview gear now, still waiting for features that were promised in 2018.

Agreed - that is a VERY nice set of cross-platform integration features you've got going on there. Well done.

awesome news, keep the good work coming!

are there updates to the wiring diagram or required connectivity between the G5 and the AFS unit? Can you point me in the right direction? Tim @ Approach is doing my wiring, so I'd be ultimately providing a link to him

second question, is this going to be available for the "non-touch" screens? I noticed your link only includes a updated download for the touch compatible screens

Default Fantastic

Nice work Rob. Keep up the great work. So glad I went AFS.

If you are building, DO NOT overlook the AFS/Dynon equipment!!
