Here is something to consider.  I did the 10.1 update myself no problem.  10.2 is more involved and there is a risk of bricking the unit.  My dealer warned me that he has bricked units, but that Avidyne replaced those units.  He didn't want me bricking my unit and paying $1,200 - whereas if he bricked it (after doing multiple upgrades) Avidyne would likely replace it at no charge.  I gladly paid him to do it.

I did the 10.1 update with my A&P with no sweat. Could those who have done the 10.2 update comment on the relative ease compared with going to 10.1? I don't recall having to mess with any config screens when I did the 10.1 update...

Thanks,

Rolfe

I received your email and have passed it along to my Jeppesen contact to get it straightened out for you. Sorry that it hasn't been as smooth as we would have liked.

FINALLY!!  

Installed 10.2 today with my A&P.  It took 80 minutes from power up to completion.  Then we updated all the config data that got reset.  We did have to cycle power once (the instructions say some IFDs will need to do this).

Now it's time to play...

They changed the default to OFF for the update, so you didn't update by mistake.   

But, I don't see what you're seeing, just booting into the database update page for me, doesn't mark the files on the USB key as "used".

My routine is to load any updates in JDM onto my USB key, as soon as they appear. Then, when I see an update notice on the IFD screen, I pull the key out of flightbag, and just update the ones that are out of date. That means that some new databases are left on the USB key, and perhaps not used, until the next time I do an IFD update. They remain usable for me.

Gang-
I did my 540 last week, and it takes a good deal of time.  My shop pulled the unit to do it on the bench.  A few notes to make sure you minimize the time spent.

1) I would plan on about 4 hrs, and more if things don't go quite as planned.

2) The upgrade will wipe out the last Nav data base, so it has to be reinstalled after the upgrade.

3) This is important, prior to 10.2, to upgrade the Nav database, you didn't have to check the update on the screen, the IFD "saw" the data base on the thumb drive and sucked it in.  NOW, you have to check the data base on the screen that you want to upload, or it doesn't get uploaded, and the thumb drive thinks it as been uploaded, so it is another call to Jepps to reset the download to the thumb drive!  Did that twice before figuring it out.

4) Used the IFD 100 on a extended cross country, it is very nice indeed.  

5) ADSB is great, BUT it's doesn't show everything so keep the eyes out the windows!

All in all, I'm  an very pleased with my Avidyne suite  IFD 540, APX340, and MLB 100.  Finally, I would like to thank the support staff, they have done a great job over the past few years when I needed help, Christine you know who I mean!

I was nervous about this, but the last Q&A at https://foreflight.com/support/jeppesen-support/ confirms that you can just use your existing Avidyne Jepp subscription to get Jepp charts in Foreflight.

Just a NOTE to all 540 owners, getting the 10.2.0.0 update.....

1. The update is free, but my avionics shop does charge for their time to update it, WHICH IS LENGTHY. They said 2 hours.  (As an avionics tech myself, from the KX days,  I opted to help.  Most of it is sitting there and waiting for stuff to finish uploading. I was a bit surprised to see a bunch of FPGAs getting re-programmed.  This is actually electronic re-wiring of the unit.)

2.  After three (3) attempts to load the complete 10.2.0.0 update, they called Avidyne.  My unit was one of the first 540s and Avidyne said they would "exchange" the unit. This was 4/21,  two weeks ago today.

3.  I called my dealer today, they said they called Avidyne, to find out where the exchange unit was,  Avidyne said they were still waiting for my unit.

So.....

If you find yourself in this situation,  make damn sure your avionics dealer and Avidyne are on the same "wavelength". 

I only have a Twin Comanche but I still figure it costs about $55 per day, JUST to keep it flight ready.  That is about $770 worth of downtime as of today. 

And speaking of rotating out equipment for exchange......

I have a friend who got exchanges on an Aspen and a Digi Flow last month.  BOTH units had to be exchanged a second time!  They are sent in for a reason, but QC'd by the mfg (with nothing repaired) only to fail *again*, in *your* plane.  All of these very advanced electronics are a pilots dream..... as long as they run.....

It seems Jepp has now partnered with FF and from what I have read if you have a Jepp subscription with approach charts, you will be able to install them in FF for no additional charge.  It's strange that Jepp is requiring an additional $350 for a "bundle plus" for us to be able to install the charts on the IFD 100

However, you will only be able to communicate with the connected wifi network so you won't have any iPad communication with the Stratus until you make it the "connected" wifi network, at which time you'll lose communication over the IFDx40 wifi network access point.

Based on previous forum comments and info from Avidyne, the way to make this work is to set up the in-panel IFD to be a "client" on the Stratus wifi network (access point) rather than being the wifi access point itself. If you then also connect the iPad to the Stratus wifi network the in-panel IFD will communicate with the iPad IFD100 across the Stratus wifi access point.
 
Vince,
Thanks for your input.  I was about to start experimenting with this, but after speaking at length with Seattle Avionics - FlyQ - I realized that they now interface with our Avidynestream.

I may not even need to use the Stratus-l network at all (will sell on e-bay).  FlyQ allows streaming of the IFD540 ADSB link, so both IFD100 and FlyQ can feed off the same stream - Life is Good.

My MLB100 and IFD540 now share Traffic and Wx with IFD100 after latest IFD100 app upgrade.

I did not check the TFR but will next time I am at hangar

Sounds to me like it didn't actually work automatically.

I think you're only connected to the Avidyne wifi, and there's no connectivity between your iPad and the Stratux.

I don't have 10.2, and I don't have an iPad, so I can't tell you exactly how to do this, but I think you need to take action to make the Avidyne connect to the Stratux network, and also make your iPad connect to the Stratux network as well.  When all three devices (Avidyne, Stratux, and iPad) are talking on the same wifi network (hosted by the Stratux), you should be able to get the METARs and traffic you're missing.

I was using FltPlan.go "connected" with my #1 IFD540 WiFi.  Then, within iPad FltPlan.go, tapped the ADSB Tab which immediately recognized my Stratus-l box WiFi (without requiring switching the iPad WiFi-Avidyne WiFi still connected in iPad settings).  Then within FltPlan.go, all ADSB Wx product Colored icons were "on", but alas, never were displayed within FltPlan.go App.

For those with the Avidyne ADSB box (Skytrax100 - aka MLB100), at least now with IFD100 all ADSB Wx & Trfc is on the IFD100 now - not convinced though that TFR's are streamed in v10.2 WiFi.

Allegedly you cannot get the IFD100 to work with an IFD540 using a stratus network because of some limitations of their networking protocol ?

I haven't tried it, but that's what people over at beechtalk are saying.

So if you want to use the IFD100 app with the IFD540 and Foreflight with Stratus, you need to keep switching networks.
Seems like a lot of hassle.

So...is it possible to be connected to both the FF Stratus and the IFD at the same time (I assume Stratus is something different??).  As of now I go to my WiFi setting and switch back and forth between the IFD and the Stratus depending on which one I want to use at the moment.  If it's possible, please describe how to set it up in configuration.

Well, I didn't know how to set this up, but it worked automatically.  
.  First "connected" with FltPlan.go to Avidyne directly (didn't specify the 540 WiFi name... just Connected via  FltPln.go).
. Then noticed couldn't stream ADSB on the Avidyne channel, so used drop down ADSB on FltPln.go tab

Worked, except still no Metars or Traffic displayed.

Good News on updated IFD100 - Nirvana, almost.
. All traffic is displayed, even with Speed vectors.
. No App crash using FMS-Route page
. Pre-existing User Wpts now synch across platforms.

So, no need to upload FP's from other Apps with IFD working.  With ADSB streaming, no need for my Stratus Box or "FF".  

Only "inconvenience" I noticed is inability within IFD100 to control iPad Time-Offset, so stuck using UTC Times - should be a simple Avidyne fix.

Question on Jepp Chart Display on IFD100 - Looks like if our Jepp Subscription isn't current with Database, No Display... is that expected?

No, actually with 10.2 the IFD can be put into a remote mode, so that it will connect to another hot-spot instead of creating one. 

So you can have one local network, where the Stratux is providing the hot spot, and the IFD and your tablet are both connected to it. All three devices could communicate simultaneously.

You set that up on the maintenance pages, simple to do.

I know that is possible, but it was not clear to me that was how n7ifr had it configured.  He didn't say "both the iPad and the Avidyne were connected to the Stratux", he said "the iPad was connected to both the Avidyne and the Stratux".

If he thought he was in the former config, but actually only had the iPad connected to the Avidyne wifi, it could explain the behavior he saw.

I don't follow.  What do you mean by "simultaneous link of Avidyne wifi and Stratux box wifi"?  

Your iPad can only be connected to either the Avidyne wifi OR the Stratux wifi.  Are you absolutely certain you weren't only connected to the Avidyne?  That would explain why you weren't getting Wx or Traffic from Stratux.

Orest and Dkit,

I spoke to SA about FlyQ - they still have yet to work out the "upload" and v10.2 WiFi streaming of ADSB data to/fr our Avidyne... FP download does work OK.

FltPlan.Go (for iPad), does work perfectly in both directions!  What a relief to be able to upload complex FP's from home to our X40's.  However, FltPlan.Go's use of the 10.2 WiFi stream for ADSB Wx/traffic is very limited. Surprisingly, it does allow simultaneous link of Avidyne WiFi and Stratus box Wifi, but ADSB box info didn't display Wx or Traffic... 

Happy days - Thank you Avidyne - Hopefully now with the new & improved IFD100 with Traffic issues plus no App crash with FMS-Routes, I will go to hangar today to test ability to upload FP's too.  If this works, we hfinally have reached Nirvana!  Just need Avidyne to contract with SA for our 540 approach charts.

Did you ask FlyQ? Is the feature supposed to be there in your platform now? The API exists with 10.2, but the software developer has to implement it. 

Same issue with FltPlan for android, not available yet, but it is out on iOS.

This is why we need Seattle Avionics right now, if not sooner!

I got this reply from Jepp about getting charts on the IFD 100. Ridiculous!!

We can certainly upgrade your subscription. To do so we would need to collect the difference in pro-rated subscription cost which would be $315.84. (This is Full US pricing)

The Services Suite Plus bundle allows us to customize the chart coverage. For Example we could set up your Nav Data as East Central US and a North Eastern or Eastern US chart coverage. Do you utilize Full US charts or would a smaller coverage area be something that would interest you

I downloaded the IFD100 app on all three of my iPads last night.  The Jeppesen license popped up saying 1 license.  It showed that on all three iPads as I let it update the data.  I only get Navdata but it let me also have the terrain and obstructions that come with the unit.  I also went to Jeppesen and downloaded the Mac beta for JDM.  My bird is in the shop getting 10.2 and the SkyTrax100 so I haven't downloaded the current Navdata for it  and it still shows it available.

Are we going to have to update the IFD100 every time we do a Navdata update on the IFD540?

My partner has his own iPad.  How can he use the IFD100 without me giving him access to my Jeppesen account?  We are partners in the plane but I'm the one that paid for the new panel and Jeppesen account.  He is strictly a VFR pilot and has no intention of doing IFR.  He didn't mind me spending what I wanted in the airplane, he just wasn't going to contribute.  It works out OK since I have a firm Buy/sell agreement and I feel that I will be buying him out in the next couple of years.  In the mean time, we split the hanger rent, annual, insurance, and maintenance on all things not related to the panel.
I was spending my kid's inheritance, one upgrade at a time but found that was too slow. Now I'm doing multiple upgrades at once.

I understand this to mean that if one already has charts in the IFD540, then the IFD100 has them too. If Jepp refuses without additional payment, then Avidyne has a serious contractual problem with Jepp.

Having said that, the "one subscription" seems to be the key, with Jepp interpreting this to mean the bundle subscription only (as presented on their web site). If one orders individual items (e.g. navdata and charts only, without obstacles, terrain, or JeppFD), then all bets appear to be off and the IFD100 becomes a subscription like any other.

If i understand correctly, you will need to call Avidyne and get the beta version of JDM for macs in order to download compatible data.

RE: jeppesen JDM and Mac OSX


Any update ?
I use JDM and a mac and I want to be sure I can get NavData and charts before I upgrade my 540.

Anyone?

Per the SIL:


• If doing the update on the bench both power must be supplied to connectors P5001 and P5002 on IFD540s and P4001 and P4002 on IFD440s. Failure to supply power to both connectors will result in a failed update. The failure notice on the screen will appear as shown in the picture below. Should this happen you can correct the error by powering off the IFD using the IFD power switch, avionics master switch or the circuit breaker. Make sure that you leave the USB drive in the USB port. Once power is off ensure that both P5001 and P5002 on the IFD540 and P4001 and P4002 on the IFD440 are connected to a reliable power source. Turn the IFD power back on using the same method used to power off the IFD and the update will resume.

My shop removed the IFD540 and did the upgrade on the bench. Went perfectly, as described in the instructions.

It had to be reinstalled and powered up to complete the MLB100/SkyTrax100 update, however, so don't be surprised about that.

Question for Simpson (or someone that knows):

Can the update to 10.2 be done on the bench?

If so, that may eliminate some of the worry about external power, or the battery running down.

I was able to fly with it today and it does allow you to have a completely different setup for datablocks. From my perspective it seems to share GPS, Flightplan (FMS), and Frequencies but everything else seems to be independent.

Someone had mentioned that earlier but wondering if it is possible to set up the data blocks on the IFD 100 or does it use the same data blocks as the IFD it is paired to?

I believe that eventually foreflight may display ADS-B weather and traffic coming from the IFD if the Skytrax 100 is installed, as it does currently with the Garmin GTX 345 via Bluetooth, but not vice versa.  

I don't believe any of the Avionics manufacturers or the FAA will allow display of traffic and weather on the panel from non FAA certified equipment such as the Stratus.

It always seems to come down to marketing wiggle-words doesn't it  : (

From Flying magazine:

“ForeFlight has taken advantage of Avidyne’s open-architecture wireless interface, opening up many possibilities for transferring and displaying of data in the cockpit including mapping, flight planning and display of ADS-B weather and traffic as we move forward,” said Dan Schwinn, Avidyne’s president and CEO."

You did it correctly. The IFD will not display ADS-B data from the Stratus, only from the Skytrax 100.  
I had the 10.2 upgrade done yesterday, configured the Stratus for wifi. What it does, it will allow you to use the Stratus with Foreflight.  When Foreflight updates the app for 2 way flight plan transfer, you will be able to do that (they do have the capability with Garmin Flight Stream, nice feature)
I tried Fltplan GO app, and it did the 2 way flight plan transfer, disappointed that Foreflight doesn't yet.

Can any of you help with connecting my IFD440 to my Stratus 2s?  
I believe I've got it configured correctly, but I don't see anything on the IFD440 that would indicate that it's actually making the connection.

I would have expected to see Weather Radar showing on the 440, as well as N-Numbers (just like they do for ADS-B equipped aircraft on my iPad running Foreflight.
I was also expecting to see Metars/etc on the INFO tab.
But nothing.   I don't even see anything on the 440's screen (like an icon) that tries to show that it's connected to a remote network. maybe it doesn't have anything like that (but should if it doesn't)

Below you can see the ID of my Stratus, and unless my eyes are missing a typo I think I have it entered into the 440. btw - no, i don't have a password so i'm leaving that field blank.

I thought I'd run this by the group before I bothered tech support, just in case I'm making an obvious mistake.
