The only correct answer is "when the FAA says so".

Let's hope the government poops it out before they go on break for the holidays this year.

(Release 10.1.1.0 Status Update - 2 Nov 2015)

We made the necessary changes and have re-submitted.   We have TSOA approval but we're waiting on the STC approval before we can distribute.  *Should* be late this week or early next week......

I know it's the same question, but is there any update on the 10.1.1.0 release that you understandibly  thought might be out by now?  I have this awesome Avidyne avionics suite and it's getting rather frustrating flying the IFD440's with all the glitches.

Steve,
I am about to have a 440 installed to keep my 540 company, and hopeful for the v10.1.1 fix of Standby Monitor attenuation Fix ... 

I am Looking hard at choosing Jeppeson on 540 (over Aspen MFD) for Approach plates, and wondering if you have any words of optimism for future plans - ? v10.2 - to incorporate improved Jepp/Avidyne programming for:

1.  Easier entry points for picking Apt Approach Charts, like from 
"Nearest" list, or "Info"page on Apts.

2.  Automatic (Geo-Referenced) Apt Diagram, upon landing.
3.  Display Low Enroute Charts with Victor Airways MEA's, etc as part of ChartView.

Thanks for your input, and ?? timeline.

Tom,

Regarding #2, I had also suggested to have the charts follow the aircraft position on both the approach and upon landing so that you don't have to continually move the chart with your finger to stay "up with the aircraft" movement.  Their EX500 has this ability and was told it will be coming in a future update.

AviJake,

Any news?  I am taking my plane back to the IFD installer for some work this week.  It would be nice if they can upgrade the software at the same time.

I really hope 10.1.1.0 is released soon.  The flip flop switch on my 540 doesn't just freeze occasionally, it's about 90% of the time.  So I use com 2, which is the 440.  Yesterday, on an IFR flight, I had an electrical failure of alt. 1 and battery 1, on my Cirrus.  The Essential bus powered by a small alt 2 and batt 2 only feeds limited items, com 2 is not included.  So, I was essentially NORDO, since I can't switch frequencies on the 540.

That really sounds like more than a software glitch, to me.  Seems like there are way too many folks using 10.0.0.3 and 10.1.0.0 without having that much trouble with the flip-flop switch.

I am not sure if it is the same issue ... but I have found that when this happens if I press on the standby frequency again like I am going to change it (basically re-select it)  - then flip-flop will work.

I have a feeling there will be no further updates until it is released as Avidyne said they were just waiting on the FAA and it was "any day now."  That could be anything to the FAA. :)

Try turning the "keyboard convenience" off on both radios. That solved my flip flop problem. I didn't try it, but I'm guessing if I had just shut it off on the 440, it would have resolved the problem.

Just an update.  I got my plane back after a new alternator.  Flew an Angel Flight and experienced the failure of the flip flop switch occasionally.  I used your procedure, and it works.  Thanks for the info.  Now, I will just wait for 10.1.1.0.

Many of us would like to combine squawk lists for efficiency and time our return visits to our Avidyne shops with ever increasing lists of fixes.

Give us some hope, Jake (Avidyne).

You're doing it wrong, Tom.  The squawk list is supposed to decrease over time.  :)

++++++++++++++

I've been involved in a couple of certification projects over the years. After the first week of December, it's real hard to get any kind of feel for whether or not the FAA will grant approval before their holiday break. By the 20th you know they won't.

In other words, either the FAA approval will come in the next few days, or it won't come before next year.  And if it doesn't come before next year, it always takes them most of January to "catch up" from being out of the office.  (Somehow the thing they were "days away" from finishing before they left takes weeks to get done once they're back.)

Meanwhile, the applicant (i.e. Avidyne) is essentially helpless at this stage.  You can only ask your FAA contact "are we there yet" so many times before they threaten to pull this car over and spank somebody.

I just got an email from my Avidyne dealer/installer.

He says that he just got back from an Avidyne "dealer council" and that the 10.1.1 release is available. I should come on in to get it installed.

What's up with that? Does he know something that we don't? Or is he a little eager?

Hi Simpson-

Great news! The obvious next question is whether this is something that can be installed by an A&P or whether we will need to take the box to the dealer for the upgrade.

Simpson, The is great news!  How big an effort is the update?  Is it just done via the front panel via a USB or does the unit have to come out of the airplane?  Is the update good for both the 540 and 440?

The update is field loadable, USB upload, so the unit doesn't need to come to us. Additionally it is available at no charge.

All the data is available to Avidyne Dealers and is available via our Dealer portal. The update does add some enhancements to both the IFD540 & IFD440.

Simpson,

With the 10.1 upgrade, Avidyne compensated the dealers so it was no cost to the end user.  Will this be the same?  If not, is there any way a user can do this update? Please advise.

My question was addressed specifically to Simpson, but I realize this is a public forum.

Simpson's post said "it is available at no charge".  He did not specifically state "no charge to the end user".  That could mean that Avidyne won't charge for it, but the dealer might charge for the time to plug the USB stick in, monitor the update process, and then verify that everything is still okay afterwards.  

My question asked whether or not Avidyne would be compensating dealers for their time spent upgrading the boxes, and if not, was there a way that the user could just do it themselves.

Hopefully you're right, Cobra.  I'm sure Simpson will respond in due course and we'll know for sure.

Cobra is correct.  The update is free to us users.  I would assume that Avidyne compensates the shops for their time to install it (as long as they are an Avidyne dealer) much like a warranty job done by a shop that is covered.  If the install is done and signed off by an A&P, they would not be paid for their time.  This is how the last software changed worked.

I'm not sure how many fall into this category, but it's cheaper for me to pay my A&P than it is for me to fly to the avionics shop even if their labor is free.  It's also much more convenient for me personally since it's ~1 hour for me to head to the airport and get my A&P to load it rather than ~5 hours for the trip to the avionics shop and back.

My A&P also works weekends so I don't have to take time off of work, but my avionics shop does not.

From the dealer's side of the Avidyne web site (link below). The link says "dealers" but I think anybody can access it. Scroll down to the bottom three files.  One is the service bulletin with the instructions.  Put the other two on a USB stick and head for the airplane.

http://dealers.avidyne.com/downloads/ifd540-release-10-1.asp

I did mine today, and the loading took less than half an hour.  Make sure you have a power supply that can sustain the avionics for at least 45 minutes before you start.

If the update is done by an Avidyne Authorized Dealer, we will cover 1 hour of labor for the update. All they need to do is fill out an RMA.

Just for clarification, I can do this under the supervision of my A&P and he can sign it off, as long as I'm willing to forgo the 1 hour reimbursement?

Thanks,

Rolfe

Thanks for the clarification, Simpson.  Since my original installing shop has broken up with me, I'll have a new shop do the 10.1.1.0 upgrade.

Where do you download it FROM? 

From the dealer's side of the Avidyne web site (link below). The link says "dealers" but I think anybody can access it. Scroll down to the bottom three files.  One is the service bulletin with the instructions.  Put the other two on a USB stick and head for the airplane.

http://dealers.avidyne.com/downloads/ifd540-release-10-1.asp

I did mine today, and the loading took less than half an hour.  Make sure you have a power supply that can sustain the avionics for at least 45 minutes before you start.

I did my IFD540 and IFD440 yesterday with no problems - instructions are very straight forward.

To update the initial posted list of Release 10.1.1.0 content, here's what it has as released:



1. Update Nearest Airport to Destination When Filter Changes - When the filter used to define displayed/usable airports changes, the criteria used to update the nearest airport to destination list will now be updated too. (Enhancement)

2. Add Mx Mode Capability to Test Transponder Discretes - Adds a capability in Maintenance Mode for installers to validate and/or troubleshoot transponder installations (e.g. test Air vs Ground transition) (Enhancement)

3. Add Port Monitor Capability to Maintenance Mode - Adds a capability in Maintenance Mode for installers to validate the data streams in/out of each com port. (Enhancement)

4. Persist the User Option selection for FLTA On/Off - Persists the User Option selection for FLTA On/Off across power cycles. (Enhancement)

5. LSK Label Change - The LSK soft title on the AUX page, Status tab changes from “Select” to “Status” for additional clarity. (Enhancement)

6. Increase Refresh Rate of NRST Page - Improve the displayed bearing and distance fields of each Nearest row to be updated in real time (up from the present 15 sec refresh rate). (Enhancement)

7. Improve AviCurve Dimming Curve - Alters the impact of the slope parameter to allow the maximum slope value to permit 100% brightness setting instead of the previously capped 21% value after significant feedback from installers and end users. (Enhancement)

8. Removes Nuisance FLTA Off and FLTA Inhibited CAS Messages - Previous to this change, when an external TAWS system was present, the system would display a permanent “FLTA Off” or “FLTA Inhibited” CAS message depending on aircraft position. While technically true, this was considered a great nuisance to installers and customers who were equipped with external TAWS to include a constantly lit “MSG” lamp. This change suppresses those CAS messages when external TAWS is present. (Enhancement)

9. Makes More CAS Messages Delete on Ack - Changes several CAS messages behavior to be delete on acknowledgement in an effort to reduce persistence of nuisance “MSG” lamp. (Enhancement)

10. Restore Aural Alerts Volume Adjust Capability in TAWS Aircraft - Restores the inadvertent removal of the aural alert volume adjust capability and bar when an external TAWS system is present. Previously, by selecting the external TAWS system in Mx Mode, the aural alert volume adjust capability was removed which didn’t permit the non-TAWS aural alert volumes to be adjusted. (Bug Fix)

11. Fix Info Map Display - Fixes a defect where the lower half of the map thumbnail on the INFO tab of the FMS page was missing when the main map was in heading up mode. (Bug Fix)

12. Improve Pilot Controlled Lighting/Super AWOS Triggering - Improves the quick on/off cycling of the VHF transmit function to permit the 5 click in 5 seconds and 7 click in 5 second triggers for PCL and Super AWOS. Previously, quick mic clicks could be missed due to slow transmit or clipping behaviors. (Bug Fix)

13. Fix IFD440 Boot Behavior - Corrects a defect where an IFD440 could occasionally boot as an IFD540 which provided offset display pages. (Bug Fix)

14. Improve OBS Deadband Behavior - Improves precision and responsiveness of pilot controlled OBS course setting. The previous implementation had some lag in responsiveness such that it became difficult to control the OBS course setting without overshooting the desired course setting or it required excessively slow and methodical course setting pilot techniques. (Enhancement)

15. Fixed Clipped and/or Distorted Charts - Corrects a defect in which some Approach and Procedure charts were clipped or visually distorted. (Bug Fix)

16.  Improvements to OBS Control - changes to help in OBS control behavior (Enhancement)

17. Improves Map Popup Depiction of Airspace Altitudes - Improves the resolution of the map popup information box depiction of airspace in dense and overlapping airspace regions. (Enhancement)

18. Corrects Jump in Display Field of View - Corrects a defect that resulted in a jump in the field of view of the User Options page when using a specific combination of touch and knob inputs. Previously, if an edit were made to a User Option parameter using the specific combination of touch and knob input, the change would take hold but the page would jump to display a different section of the page. (Bug Fix)

19. Transmit Pressure Altitude - Adds the Pressure Altitude 429 label to the output stream of the IFD to facilitate integration with ADS-B In receivers. (Enhancement)

20. Correct Standby Com Monitor Volume Attenuation Defect - Corrects a defect that would attenuate the volume of the active and standby com frequency channels to 50% when the Standby Com Monitor function of the audio panel was selected for use. (Bug Fix)

21. Correct Conflict in FIS-B Regional vs CONUS Radar Depiction - Corrects a defect that would incorrectly depict weather radar tiles when a combination of range changes and product display selections were made. (Bug Fix)

22. Enable Display of OBS Legs on EX5000, EX600, EX500 Displays - Adds OBS leg information to the output stream of the IFD to facilitate display of that active OBS leg on the Avidyne legacy MFDs. (Enhancement)

23. Stored Route Retrieval Recalls Proper Airway - Corrects a defect where a route containing overlapping airways gets stored and then later retrieved for use but would use the “other” overlapping airway which was a source of confusion to the user. (Bug Fix)

24. Correct Non-Responsive Frequency Swap Command - Corrects a defect where a specific set of touches and bezel control inputs would make the frequency swap function lock out. (Bug Fix)

25. Enhance GPS Pulse Per Second (PPS) Signal Precision - Enhances the precision of the periodicity of the PPS signal to be ARINC compliant to facilitate future integration with ADS-B transceivers. (Enhancement)

Thanks for that clarification Steve -- I've looked at the service bulletin and am confident that we can handle this locally.

Ha, just updated the IFD540 to the 10.1.1 firmware. All went smooth, just under 30 min.

Way cool, LIO_BT appeared as available on a BlueTooth scan, and LIO_WIFI was up on WiFi.
