  1. Currently the TruTrak only hooks to your GPS. No connections will be made to the G5. The Gad 29B or GMU 11 will not be required
  2. If you put all the test points to 0 it will start working. It still needs to be corresponded to you altimeter.
  3. If you want the autopilot to use the Aspen horizon for roll information to the autopilot, then you will need the EA100. You don't need the EA100 even if you have pitch if you keep the original horizon.
  4. The TXi EIS is much less restricted then the JPI or EI instrument replacements. The installer can change the gauges around and program the parameters unlike JPI and EI. There are some limitations but at least you don't have to send it back if something changes on the engine parameters. I bet if enough people ask they will be able to add % horsepower.
  5. This is the information I got from my Aspen rep less then a week ago. E5: 1: Ifr compatible 2: you can remove the horizon and DG unless the horizon is used for the autopilot(see note 4) 3: The ACU will be required for most older autopilots and navigation receivers 4: If you have an autopilot that uses the horizon you can use the EA100. 1000 PRO Max PFD: all the same requirements of the E5 with the addition of needing to keep the horizon. The thoughts at Oshkosh was that since the E5 didn't a horizon that the 1000 max pro PFD would also not need one. Aspen as since been told that is not the case. The 1000 PRO max PFD has the same requirements at the 1000 pro PFD. If you install the 1000 pro max PFD and MFD you can get rid of all the flight instruments except the compass.
  6. The 430 will use RS-232 for gps and weather information. The 429 will be for traffic. You will also want to use the RS232 out of the aspen to send pressure altitude to the 345 so that you can get rid of your encoder.
  7. My guess is something is partially blocking your MAP transducer.
  8. You will lose TIS-a coming from the 330 es if you remove the 429 connector.
  9. The GFC 500 doesn't require the two 429 inputs on the 430W. You currently only need both inputs with non garmin auto pilots. You need the GAD 29b if you want nav and gps information to show up on the G5 HSI.
  10. Unless you already bought the FS 210 or are getting it used, the FS 510 will be less cost($0 installation cost or extra Circuit Breaker). You can order the the 650 without a data card saving ~$450. The 510 also has the database concierge (super easy to use)
  11. The current G5 STC requires you use both of the 430W arinc 429 inputs for the G5, so you don't have one for the GTX 345. Garmin has added a 429 protocol on the 430W (G5) that allows the G5 to only use one of the 430W 429 ports, which works fine, it just hasn't been changed on the G5 STC approval.
  12. Have Trio or Trutrak finished the STC for Mooneys
  13. The yaw servo is $1500 the install kit for bonanzas and 210s is $795 plus labor for the installation. Don't try to save money by not getting the auto trim. I have flown 2 C182s with a GFC500, one with trim and one with out. The trim made everything work much smother. If your choice is Trim or YD do the trim.
  14. The Max Standard Battery lasts for 4 hours instead of 20 minutes like the older aspens. If you only get the MAX PFD you can get rid of the AI and DG. You still have to keep AS,VSI,ALT, and TC. If you go with the MAX 2000 system you only need the 2 aspens for flight instruments.
