Or more importantly, does 5.7.1 change the SIL value?

Default Gave up on Navworx

I ordered one of the Navwork EXP units last August, and like everyone else, never got it. After months of no email or telephone responses to my queries, I was really glad that I purchased it on my Master Card. I called MC today and they are refunding my purchase price and will collect from Navworx.
I hated to do it, but with the lack of response from Navworx, on products already paid for (which, in hind sight, should have been a red flag in the first place), I can only imagine what ongoing support would be like.
Since I have always been happy with GRT products, and am installing their EFIS/EIS system in my RV-3B, I am going to go with their new UAvionics package, which should ship by the middle to end of June. (They are waiting to get in more of their GPS units so they can bundle the packages.)

Default Same here Steve

Like Steve we are contemplating putting the UAvionics/GRT package in my 9A as well as my brothers 12. I think they fit better behind the 12's panel anyhow.

I noticed that the Navworx block for certified ADSB equipment on the FAA page was back on there when I looked today . I don't frequent this page very often so It may have been placed earlier but I just noticed it. I know that for quite some time there was no mention of Navworx on this page. That block is for the 600B cert unit with P/N 0112 and 0113 using the internal GPS source and or Aspen NexNav Mini .

copied off the FAA page:

I am told Navworx phones and website will all be operational by tommorrow.
Orders are being taken for the compliant units that will ship in June.
Mr. baron asked if he could call me... which I agreed to. Silence since then.

Took a look at the NavWorx page just to see if anything new. Was looking at the product offerings ( not that you could buy anything ) but just to see if anything was new. Found this interesting bullet item on the ADS600 receiver ( in Only) unit. Copied from Navworx site:

Certified ADS-B Receiver for upcoming certified ADS-B IN applications ????

To my knowledge the FAA certification process has been been pretty clear about having minimum control on ADS B In receivers. However this bullet item leads one to believe there may be something forthcoming. I know I have been asking about the low end cost Receiver that uAvionix has ( Ping Buddy II) and have been getting " it's not ready for sale yet" and notice that the prototype is no longer available.

Is there some talk of regulations now on certification of the ADSB in products??

Default My ADS600-EXP is working but !!!!!!!

I have a Navworx ADS600-EXP being fed by a KT76A through a TransMon.

This equipment was installed on 05/06/2016 and has worked without issues for 36 flight hours.

In the past, I had requested a few ADS-B reports and all came back with no issues.

I just recently requested another ADSB report using the following link:

Here is the message that I received back that it failed to generate a report.

************************************************** ***************
Your Performance Report request for Tail Number N812BM on 5/04/2017 failed to generate a result.

If you believe this is an error, please respond to and include the following information:

1. Aircraft registration number and flight identification code,

2. Flight date and time,

3. Make/model of ADS-B transmitter and GPS, and

4. Any ADS-B avionics operating abnormalities observed or reported during the associated flight.

************************************************** ***************

I submitted the requested info and got the following reply a couple of days later.

Please see link and contact Navworx.

Additional ADS-B information can be found here:

Provided by:
Federal Aviation Administration
Flight Standards Division
Avionics Branch (AFS-360)
Washington, DC

So bottom line is, at present my system is working fine but can't get an ADS-B report ????

The FAA reply refers me to the document about the FAA and Navworx debacle.

So there you have it from another Navworx dazed and confused customer

This mess is like looking in window of an insane asylum.

My patience and confidence in Navworx is gone, have contacted CC bank to get a refund (if possible) on purchase last August, over $1800 invested, nothing to show for it, absolutely nothing.
