    Avidyne IFD 540/440-Garmin 500 software bug

    Sorry - to write what the shop had to Check is to easy! Have you read the installation manual that was actual for about 6 months (time of my Installation)? I think no! There is nothing written in about software versions of the G500, or what Software version will be clarified by Avidyne. There is als nothing written in the STC (witch is also basis of the EASA certification). After there is a issue, it is to easy to say "we will inform you when it is allow to update to a new G500 Software version" - cause there was nothing puplished. It is not so easy to downgrade a software version.

    Are there any news about software update of the IFD 's? Due to I have the failure also in flight (during take off roll) it is not so funny :-(

    Correct - but it is easy to cross with ATC clearance. For Gliders are special Aereas (Segelflug-Sectoren) with individual upper limits, when the weather is good. The upper limits for gliders is provided by EDDS ATIS.

    Hello, climb rate with a Discus2b (15m Standard class) 400ft/min Problem is at our Airfield that it is 2.250ft high and we have only 1.800ft runway lenth (60% conrete 40% gras) => Therefore no double seater like DuoDiscus, Arcus ... It is my private plane. In my flying club we have a Robin DR400-180. With this plane it is no problem to tow double seater (also with water in the wings). I am located at gliderfield Hornberg near Stuttgart (EDDS).

    I am waiting before taxi appr. 1-2 minutes after engine start (After alligm. the AI and GPS Position is OK). I am an Flight and IR (incl. MEP) Instructor. In EASA you must learn steep turns (45° bank) for your IR-Rating. Therefore I do it also with my students all the time. When I fly private (for my own) I practise also sometimes steep turnes. In Stuttgart one guy has the same issue at steep turns with a PA28 Arrow 4. I use my plane also in the Utility category (air-towing). My DA40 is one with IR equipment and an air tow hook :-)

    Attached some photos. When you are flying it is allways HDG lost with the AI "AHRS ALIGN" on the ground you will have the red "X". In the average at every 5-th flight I have this failure. Some pictures are made, when the IFD440 was in repair due to the time problem (Diffrences between IFD440 and IFD540)

    Sorry that is not correct, I have send a picture at the Avidyne forum, where you can see that I have also the problems in the air, cause it can also happen in the take off run shortly before airborne :-( And thereafter you have the issue also in the air!!! I have bought a Avidyne IFD440/540 combo and Garmin G500 in November 2017. Therefore my G500 have Vers. 7.12 at delivery!!! In the installation Manual at this Date is nothing written about the G500 Software Version!! I think the IFD have the best HM (Human-Machine) Interface on the market. But with also some big Technical buggs (GPS Positioning when circling with more than 35deg bank / G500 issue / Not identical Times between 440 and IFD540 on start up). For me it is frustrating cause I have spend a lot of money, and now I have a lot of problems with the IFD. The tech support, says for example the GPS Positioning failure is a problem of the GPS Antenna location-but on the DA40 the Antennas are on the roof and it is a "plastic" low Wing plane :-( AVSimson you can send me a Email to my private adress oliverbucher@emilbucher.de Cause after the experience of my installer and myself maybe it is better than over your tec-support. Excuse my bad english, I am from Germany. Oliver
