Re: G1000NXI+Flightstream 510 waypoint lock

How often did I see management and engineers block simple things because of fear and how often did I prove them wrong by implementing it myself instead ?! :D Here every customer using Foreflight has a real issue with complete categories of waypoints, whereas your scenario is highly unlikely if the r...

Re: G1000NXI+Flightstream 510 waypoint lock

Try entering this plan in the FF map page: KHWD VPCSH VPMIN KSJC. Everything is fine and the G1000 will accept this flight plan. Now drag between VPCSH and VPMIN to add the Niles Canyon visual reporting point which is clearly named on the sectional, but has no five character fix identifier. FF adds...

G1000NXI+Flightstream 510 waypoint lock

Hi! Got the FS510 in our DA62 and especially IFR it’s really an awesome tool. However VFR I encountered an issue when using Foreflight and I was wondering if anyone has an idea how to fix it: When adding visual reporting points in Foreflight and syncing to the G1000NXI it shows the path and the wayp...

Re: G1000 NXi Phase II

Any day now Diamond is expected to announce their GIA63W trade-in program for NXi Phase I --> Phase II upgrades, as well as for Legacy G1000 owners that need to install these traded-in GIA63Ws in their aircraft. In both situations owners may be pleasantly surprised by the pricing. :P :thumbsup: Som...

Re: G1000 NXi Phase II

Thanks for the great review! I just brought 62.113 to its first 100h check at Diamond Egelsbach and at least they will install FS510 and the latest phase I software. Phase II upgrades are stalled right now in Europe because Diamond is internally figuring out how to reuse the GIA63W and therefore giv...

Re: New Owner - advice on configuration

Forgot to mention - In Europe, you have the option of purchasing a DA62 with a 1999 MTOW in order to avoid fees imposed on aircraft that weigh 2000 kg or more. Might want to look into that option as well. Do a W&B calculation. I am only below 2000kg when I fly with 3 ppl max, reduced main fuel and ...

Re: New Owner - advice on configuration

Here are my thoughts: AVIONICS Honeywell KN 63 remote DME - YES Becker 3500 remote ADF - NO, not needed anymore WX 500 stormscope - Maybe, YES if you decide against radar Avidyne TAS 605 traffic advisory system - YES Garmin GWX 70 weather radar - YES, mind the resell value Garmin GSR 56 Iridium sate...

Re: Beige Interieur Leather

I was wondering if the unit was not fully serviceable but maybe it's the limitations of the system and the small vents for the size of the cabin. It's a pity since it's expensive and one is lumping around a third alternator ontop of system weight. There are a few usability tricks with the a/c you c...

Re: DA62 NXi Pending Approvals

Hm... things like checklist are so trivial that I can’t believe any kind of certification is required when added to SW. There is for sure certification required. But Garmin has certification evidence for this feature from other aircrafts. Once it is done for Cirrus, Cessna, Piper or others it shoul...

Re: DA 42 electrical circuit structure / redundancy

I‘m pretty sure the single red master switch is a certification requirement that you can remove power from the cockpit with a single switch in case of a fire/smoke. This does not include the ecus since they are not located in the cockpit. So you have a full redundancy on every part of the system to ...
