10.2.3.1 ... See previous post about numbering.

I won't promise a schedule for 10.2.3.1, but I'd say we're "reasonably close".  10.3 is a little fuzzier, but it's not beyond imagination that it occurs in 2019 as well.

Thanks so much for that update! Looking forward to new stuff, that we can enjoy and parade around to the "other" folks.

Sad to hear about having to wait up to another year or longer for RF legs. :-(

With the proliferation of RF legs in Europe, that is becoming a real competitive disadvantage vs Garmin, and reduces the options for those of us already flying with IFDs.

I must admit that I can't really fathom why doing a flight test is such a huge time investment, in the overall scheme of things for a software release approval.

For info, just a few examples (not for navigation ... Jepp copyright ;-))

Sorry Vince, I knew you'd be disappointed.  It's not just flight test, it also gets into the STC documentation, but still.  I don't really think it's a year away, but I suppose that's possible.

The Garmin STC just says that an EHSI with autoslew is required..... easy to add that to the STC wording and it would get the approval for those who meet the prereq. New avionics installs have that, including my lowly C172.

 .... but maybe the govt shutdown plays a role with anything that needs an STC mod ???

Much as I'd like to blame the shutdown, it's not affecting 10.2.3.1 at this point.

Is it possible to list the changes that Avidyne expects to incorporate into 10.2.3.1 or is that a can of worms you prefer not to open yet?:)

The other place in the UI where there is objectionable overlap is with the side tab that let's you split the screen on the FPL and NRST tabs.  When a procedure bracket is displayed, the label would often be obscured by the tab.  That also will be fixed in the upcoming release.

Here's a sample screenshot of how it looks after the fixes.



Looks nice! Looking forward to this.  Thanks for the good news.

Same here I have to hit the button to go back to track up.  I’ve even set the user option to track up.  So this must be a bug :(

IFD440 with Aspen Pro

Hopefully this makes the list for the next release.

I don’t know if this has been brought up before. I was wondering if the Switch Tank alert, when connected to an engine monitor or fuel totalizer, could alert every x amount of gallons instead of every x amount of minutes. The IFD knows how much fuel has been used or remains as it is receiving the info from the totalizer or engine monitor and the info appears in the calculators and in the datablocks.  I would like to be alerted every 10 or 15 gallons.  Is there any reason this would not be possible?

To reword the previous request, "Is it possible to get a list of the new features and/or fixes that have been publicly discussed/acknowledged?" that are hoped to be in 10.2.3.1?  Thanx

I believe the reply was that they are not quite ready to release that yet and requested that we hold tight a little longer.

Clarification: I was asking for a summary of what has already been released/discussed/said publicly.  If it's already been discussed publicly, it's not a secret.

The only thing I'm aware of having been released/discussed/said publicly about 10.2.3.1 content is that RF leg support "won't" be in it since it requires flight testing that requires a major release. By implication, any other changes/features that require flight testing also won't make the cut.

I would like it if the designers of the software could give the owners some options. I like the aural alerts for traffic. I have not done any updates since as I believe it was removed. Why cant a simple traffic aural alert be added to the software if the customer wants one. I love all of the other options coming out on updates but I like this function a little more. If I have my head out the window looking, I don't want to have to be staring at the IFD to see if an alert comes up. If it cant say "traffic" give us a beep or something so we know to look at the unit. Pretty Please!!! I love my Avidyne stuff and tell everyone that will listen about how great it is but this is the one frustrating issue I have.

Hi:

Wondering if anyone has thought about adding a "nearest VFR" option?   

Perhaps you could also one step further and have a sort of "nearest" airports based on progressive weather improvements towards VFR. 

You could also set a "nearest-to-my-alternate-minimums" and have an option to set the options to the bigger of the legal minimums and/or your own personal minimums...

The IFD already makes the raw 3rd party information available to the PIC to makes the decisions you suggest. For liability reasons I can't see them ever going as far as what you request.

New to the thread and a new 540 owner, so apologies if this has been brought up already, or is a feature I'm not aware of.
The VNAV function in the 530 was very helpful. Would love to see that offered.

That is a function in the 540. Look up Vertical Constraints in the manual. You add the constraints on the FPL page. Highlight the waypoint or airport and at the bottom you'll see 'Cross'. Enter what you want in the blanks. Make sure you add the Vertical Speed Required data block to the data pull-out on the right side of the map page.

You're in for a treat. 

The IFD handles full VPath down & up, with vertical constraints (automatically loaded for approaches) for every waypoint. Keep the VSR block on your screen for guidance, and don't forget the indomitable Boeing Banana (green arc on screen), for graphical guidance.

Far superior.

All, I just know on a Garmin 530W which I fly today but soon to replace it with an IFD540 I have on order, the GNS530W asks you whether you want to fly the procedure turn or not with a "yes or no" question when you load the approach. I have not found this step to be invasive at all as I load the approach. I like the idea but maybe just because I am use to it. However, it is a good function to use from my perspective.

Is there anyway to make the auto on feature selectable? I do not have an avionics master in my plane, so when the master comes on, the 440 automatically powers up. I dont want to start my plane with the 440 on, so have to manually turn the 440 off by holding down on/off switch, start the plane then manually turn the radio back on.

and second:

Give us the ability to use a user waypoint airport as an origanial waypoint when creating a flight plan.
