  1. Connecting and pairing your iPad with the 345R is easy. Turn your master on go to settings on your iPad tap on Bluetooth and you should see your 345R, then just tap connect. Hope it works for you because I could not get it to connect when I was sitting in the airplane. I had to open my access panel stick my iPad inside make the connection but lost the connection once I got into the plane, just will not connect while I'm sitting in the plane. I am still trying to sort this issue out and I think I'm losing my Bluetooth connection because of all my a/c stuff behind the baggage compartment. Let me know how you made out and if you have a/c.

  2. My mechanic supplied the O ring, it was a small one. Again if you want to PM me with your number I'll give you a call, I'm pretty familiar with the system.
  3. I just went though the same problem believe it or not in my M20R. The first thing I did was to make sure the valve shuts off completely so loosen up the connection on the cable and make sure it is completely shut off which it sounds like you did. Second try spaying leak detection fluid around all the connections you can find, you can use Joy soap to do this. Make sure all the connections are tight. My problem was the same as yours I lost O2 with the valve shut off. I found a bad O ring (which didn't look bad) in the supply line to the tank. You can easily remove this line, it is the small line that comes off a "T" and runs to the O2 tank, this line also feeds your gauge and is connected to your outside fill port. Remove the fitting on the tank first this will allow the O2 not to leak out of the tank then remove the fitting on the "T". The small O ring is on the end that was connected to your tank. Make sure that when you replace the O ring it can be used with oxygen. If you have any questions PM me with your number and I will give you a call and walk you through it.
  4. Please let me know once the software becomes available to display FIS-B nexrad weather on the G1000. Buddy
  5. My 1980 M20J came with a baggage compartment light, the bad news was if you accidentally hit the switch say pulling a set of golf clubs out during the day you would not notice that the light was on and when you got back to the airplane your battery is dead. My M20R has a time built in so it automatically shuts the light of in a few minutes. As for a map light make sure you have the correct bulb in it. I replaced a bulb that was out in my M20J once with the wrong bulb and it did not give off the same amount of light that was originally in it.
  6. Don thanks but I manually opened and closed the valve several times and it seems to be shutting off. I also leak checked the supply line to the ports when I had the valve shut off and found no leeks there.
  7. I have a 2005 M20R with the 115 cu.ft. O2 tank and it looks like my valve may be leaking air, the more I turn it off and on the faster it seems to lose O2. Does anyone know of a place where I can either get the valve serviced or may have one that I has been rebuilt that I can buy outright?
  8. Looks like you need a new o-ring in your brake caliper. It is an easy job to replace the "o"-ring and bleed the breaks when finished.
  9. I am surprised that know one had a wheel and tire assembly that they could have brought out and changed it right where it sat, it does not take that long. Usually that is what the maintenance shop will do, it's a popular wheel and tire.
  10. Russ we are hoping that the 345R will show the FIS-B weather on the G1000 after installation along with the traffic. I took the plane out to JD and McKee. According to them I had to install the 345R with the wass upgrade.
  11. Does anyone have a use for 2 GIA's and a 330 remote transponder that I am removing from my 2005 M20R with the G1000 for the waas upgrade or know where I can sell them?
  12. Looks like microphone port, I think that was where it was in my 201.
  13. Thanks Russ JD already has an email into Mooney I will let you know the outcome. I'm also not sure if l can just keep my 330 and ES it or I will need the 345R to meet the 2020 requirements.
  14. Thanks Russ I am talking to JD right now about getting this done. Did you have the GTX 345R installed also? I now have XM weather and we are trying to figure out if the 345 will receive FIS-B weather and display it on the G1000, an article in this months Flying magazine says it will he is checking with the avionics shop as we speak.
  15. Russ, thanks for the info. I will head over to KDAB this week they are a MSC and talk to Jake. I'm glad it all worked out for you and I'll let you know how I made out.   Buddy
