Unhappy red light

Wish I were smart enough to get the red light to stay off!

Even with the antiquated look i prefer the data on the panel because it allows me to use the pair of efis displays for something else.

I have never customized my EIS. The boot screen is perfect for engine start. It's the only instrument that is on during start since it has been (as planned) immune to voltage swings when starting.

A configuration that has become common for me is to put the EIS on the 4 EGT lean page, split engine and long distance map on one efis, pfd and short distance map on the other efis. Short map is for the emergency turn and close ADSB traffic. Long map it for strategic planning. Weather mostly.

The engine split has all the data I need except 4 cyl get detail so that is what the EIS is good for.
