Can someone tell me where Avidyne specifies the 429 data protocol between the GTX345 and the 540?

not sure what you are looking for but the configuration settings are in the install manual.

How does this work if there is an EX5000 MFD in the setup? The 345 needs to talk to it using the same rs422 output port, but with a different format.

Now I've been approved for posting, what is the purpose of the RS-232 line going from the GTX-345 pin 8 to the IFD pin 57?

Thanks,

John.

Mine is wired like that but both ports are turned off so I guess nothing.

Well, the line from the IFD to the 345 should be for GPS position source for ADS-B.

I too have turned off the 345->IFD and haven't noticed anything yet not working but it's also waiting to be flown after the install.

So, just to bring this full circle after speaking to Avidyne Tech Support.

For 10.2.3.1, the Installation manual has been updated to cover the GTX-345. Below is the wiring:


The settings are indicated as follows:


That should clean all this up.
