Is anyone running a 540 with a Stec-55x?  My gpss roll stearing went away, I think abou the time of my 10.2 upgrade.  I've asked a couple of shops about this and also sent a ticket in to Avidyne support.  So far, .... crickets...  BTW my 540 wouldn't update in the aircraft so the unit had to be exchanged,  and thus the setting that worked before, are gone.  Raw nav still works fine,  if not so precise.  My HSI is a  KCS 55.  

TIA

I have an STEC-30 and it continued to work fine after the 10.2 upgrade. I’ll see what my settings are when I get the plane back from annual next week. I do t think the 10.2 upgrade has anything to do with it. Your new unit may need new settings, or perhaps something else is having a problem.

Unfortunately my number 2 out isn't even turned on.  Both one and two are wired to the 55x.  Now,  I'm not totally sure about a stec-30 is you may have a gpss converter on that one.  The 55x is designed to take arinc 429 gpss without the need for a converter.  Also ran fine for years off a G530.

Call Christine Evans at Avidyne tech support. Speak to her personally. If she doesn't have an answer directly, she will help get the issue resolved. I have experienced two issues with loss of features - and they were fixed with a software load that Christine had created for my situation. The load took a second or two, then the reboot, then the features (WiFi/BT and 500' callout) were back.

Myron,
I just sent you an email.  For posterity's sake, I will answer here so if anyone else has this issue it will give them some idea of where to check.

For GPSS roll steering to an STEC 55x, the IFD 429 output needs to be configured for one of the GAMA 429 varieties.  Straight ARINC429 will not work.
