A few weeks back I hit the synthetic vision tab and receive an error screen. “Attitude failure...”. I’ll post a pic. I simply did as requested and it rest pretty quick. I was in mid flight. Straight and level with no turbulence. The next time up it did it again. Early on it would reset but now it won’t reset at all. A couple days ago it wasn’t wanting to reset so I figured it was because of the light chop I was flying in. After landing I got the plane stationary at an idle and it finally reset.

Today I went up and same issue, except I never got it to reset. Even after landing and stationary it would continually give me the error. I shut the plane down and turned the Avionics back on... wouldn’t reset.

I’ve had the 550 maybe a year or a little less?

Love the synthetic vision but it needs to work.

Is this an indication of a failure if he AHRS?

I do have the latest software update fwiw. 10.2.1.

Got in touch with TJ regarding the issue.  The IFD goes back to Avidyne for work.  I am under the impression this is not something they've seen much, if at all.  I'll provide an update when I can.

I suppose now would be a good time to work on the partial panel ? Nav #2 aspects of my IFR rating that's in progress.  I'll try to keep the glass half full.

That is a good attitude!  LOL.

Well, it shouldn't be be for very long that you'll have the partial panel practice.
