  1. I had an EDM-930 installed a little over a year ago. I kept my factory senders since they were working well. They did have to be calibrated by draining the tanks and refilling in (IIRC) two gallon increments. On the ground or in straight-and-level they are pretty darn accurate when compared against the totalizer which is dead-nuts on.
  2. Do you have a specific airport in mind?
  3. I ordered the Inspector. Only time it has gone off (luckily) I was on the ground upwind of a C152 doing a run up. Got up into the 40’s. It is normally zero in cruise.
  4. If you’ve seen the inside of one of these things (and I’ve flown on the accident airplane twice) they are not much more complex than a J-3 or or even the Super Cub which I’ve flown as PIC. It is a very basic aircraft, cranked out by the tens of thousands in wartime. We’d be safer under our beds but I’m not staying there.
  5. I did a 930 when I did my panel, precisely to save the incremental bleeding due to dying factory gauges and sensors. I’m very happy with it. My factory fuel level senders were working fine so I drew the line there. They are accurate enough and the totalizer is dead nuts accurate. I know within a gallon how much is in each tank.
  6. I think it might be this forum with a member with a .sig quote something to the effect of, "An airplane is safe in the hangar, but that is not what airplanes are for." That pretty much sums up my feeling on it.
  7. Note that when you format, any data on the disk beforehand will be erased! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. tl;dr: is try reformatting the drive with FAT32 and an allocation unit size of 16k. I think it may have something to do with the blocksize the disk is formatted with. The one they provided with my EDM-930 is an 8GB drive formatted with FAT32 and an allocation unit size of 16k. I’ve tried various drives of various sizes larger and smaller and there didn’t seem to be a rhyme or reason why some were recognized for download and others weren’t. I had always intended to look up how the one they provided was formatted but hadn’t got around to bothering until I saw this thread. Let us know if that helps!
  9. There is a software update for some of the EDMs that now shows the tach time persistently on the display.

  12. That is a thing of beauty. Congratulations!
  13. Hi Everybody, I'm new to both the board and to Mooney ownership and figured this thread was as good place to jump in as any, since this is almost exactly what I am attempting at the moment. I recently picked up an '87 J with a solid airframe, engine, and interior, but mostly original panel. I thought the vintage of the plane was appropriate since that was probably the year I decided I wanted to own a Mooney someday. It's currently in the shop having the following added: Garmin GTN 750 Garmin G5 DG/HSI to replace the mechanical DG and one of the legacy CDIs Garmin GAD 29B so the G5 can drive the legacy KAP 100 that came with the plane (keeping this for now) Garmin 345R Transponder (ADS-B) JPI EDM-930 (to replace most of the legacy engine instruments) With any luck, this will be my "forever plane." Before and after pictures to follow... Nice to be a part of the group!
