Dynon Firmware Update
Been busy with everything *but* the project these days. Yesterday Dynon announced their new firmware that supports HSI, so tonight I downloaded it and upgraded the firmware on both the EMS and EFIS units. In this photo you can see the EMS with a yellow screen. This screen indicates that you're uploading/downloading firmware.
After everything was updated, I connected the GPS wire and it actually started working. Unfortunately I'm not getting left/right indicators on the HSI. I think it's because the GX-50 display doesn't output track offset in their serial stream. It's apparently output on analog lines, but not the GPS stream. Hmm...oh well. It gets the track info, but that's pretty much pointless. I'm probably going to add a Garmin 496 eventually and it will probably display the offset.
