  1. How often should I download updates to my 496? And what is the current update from Garmin for the 496? Thanks.
  2. Has anyone come across whether or not my GTX330 can be retrofitted or upgraded by Garmin to comply with ADSB-Out? Or any other company that provides an upgrade or retrofit to the GTX330. I already have XM weather and traffic on my Garmin 496, so undecided if I need to bother with ADSB-In. Thoughts?
  3. Thanks all.
  4. Thanks all.
  5. Thanks. Will check the ground.
  6. Hi Roger, do you have a good contact number or person for this issue so I don't have to wind my way through the entire Garmin world? Robin
  7. Hi Roger. I can move the indicator to the right with my fingers, then it just sits there when I move the wheel to the left towards neutral.. Robin
  8. Thanks Roger. I will contact Garmin. This is a new thing. Never had this trouble before. Although the radio is about seven years old now. Robin
  9. Hi. Noticed recently that when I trim the rudder all the way to the right with the rudder trim wheel, the trim indicator inside the plane does not go past neutral and seems to just be real loose beyond that point. I checked what was happening outside with the actual rudder when I roll the rudder trim wheel all the way to the right, and the actual rudder seems to stay in the neutral position as well. Then I rolled the rudder trim wheel all the way to the left, and the indicator moved all the way to the left inside the plane and the actual rudder also moves left. Hmmmmm. So it seems I have no right rudder trim to speak of. Hmmm. Any thoughts what is going on here? Thanks, Robin
  10. Hi Was flying the other day and started getting a background hollow sound in my headset during radio calls when pushing the push to talk button. It is a Garmin SL40. The noise is heard in both the pilot and passenger headsets. I did a radio check in the air and on the ground, and my transmissions are being heard clearly, although one person said they were hearing some noise in the background too. I am hearing other airplane transmissions without this added noise. Just this irritating background noise when I transmit. Tried the squelch, but did not make a difference. Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks! Robin
  11. Thanks for all the great replies! Really appreciate it.
  12. Perfect! Thanks!
  13. We were having problems with our TruTrak and it went back to TruTrak for repair. TT did a complete over haul of the unit, including install of a new "mother board" in the unit. We have now had it reinstalled in our CTSW. Question. It is ready to fly "out of the box" or do I need to "calibrate" or set it up some how before using it in flight. If so, what might that entail? PS: TruTrak was excellent in its service and efficiency in solving our problems and getting the unit back to us quickly.
  14. Does any body know if the CTSW has an airspeed calibration chart? Even a airspeed calibration chart for the CTLS would be good.
  15. Does anybody has any idea how to get some extra ignition keys that are cheaper than the $36.00 that Flight Design is charging per key?
