Re: DA40NG - NXi Phase 2 database problems

Just to update, I did put the checklists on the SD card for the bottom PFD slot, booted up and hey presto. Nothing. Start up screen still says Checklist file N/A, and on entry, the checklist button is still greyed out. Might it need a software tweak for it to recognise it and upload it? Seems frustr...

Re: DA40NG - NXi Phase 2 database problems

So will these work in a 42 VI with NXi phase 1, if we load them onto the bottom MFD card?
Thanks

Short Field Take Off

Had to take off from a shorter runway than usual with a cross wind, so to be sure I did the SFTO procedure and all went well with heaps to spare, however I noticed that the AFM procedure on 4A-35 doesn't actually have any reference to when to put the flaps up (or indeed have any reference to them at...

Re: G1000NXi - The Missing Features

Thanks for sharing this. I sometimes forget why I picked up DA42 :) but it doesn't mean that DAI shouldn't be much much better in supporting existing customers than they're now. Emir I completely agree with you. That was one of the main points I tried to make to Amila and Scott when I met with them...

Re: G1000NXi - The Missing Features

Looking on the COPA forum, I do not see any degree of these issues being mentioned. I guess the ultimate acid test will be when the DA50 is launched. How many Cirrus owners looking to upgrade or go to something newer will convert to Diamond? Andrew I did. I came to Diamond 42-VI via a 22T. I do con...

Re: Garmin Autoland

So, has anyone with contacts in the factory or those who speak to Scott asked the question: is it coming to a Diamond aircraft near you soon? I have asked on their Instagram account so if I get a response will let you all know. David I also asked Amila Spiegel, Director Sales and Marketing, who rep...

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

I did meet someone in the US once who thought Australia was Austria, and he complemented me on my excellent English skills... :lol: Sometimes I better understand Austrians speaking English than Australians :D :D Emir And to confuse the issue I am actually a Scot who lives in Australia. All my Austr...

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

However, the preliminary indications are the initial pricing is likely not realistic to succeed, as several Phase I owners* have shared with me the factory pricing doesn’t leave them feeling the least bit motivated to upgrade to Phase II. Which will clearly make or break the entire official program...

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

And $35K is a reasonable price for a NXi Phase II hardware upgrade: this includes a pair of GIA64Ws, GEA 71B, the new audio panel, and about a day's labor with no rewiring required. But if I'm giving up my pair of GIA63Ws to Diamond (worth as much as $20K on the used market that I can't collect), t...
