Default GMA 345 vs. GMA 245

As soon as I set the Audiopanel to the correct GMA 345, the Mismatch message disappears but the Audio panel indications are no more present on the PFD after reboot.

What am I doing wrong?
Igor,

The GMA 245 was purpose built for integration with G3X Touch displays, and communicates with the G3X Touch via CAN. The GMA 345 does not have the same level of integration as the GMA 245, it communicates with the G3X Touch via serial bus, as you mention. This datapath only facilitates limited integration with the G3X Touch. You will want to configure your displays to reflect that you have a GMA 345 connected to the system.

Thanks,

Justin

Justin,

this is what I already did. The serial bus is set to GARMIN INSTRUMENT DATA and the Audio Panel Type to GMA 345 in the G3X config menu. The panel will not show on the CNS bar. And yes, it is enabled to show on the PFD.





Thanks,

Default GMA 345 Capabilities

With a GMA 345, you are not going to have the highly integrated control of the audio panel through the G3X Touch display as you would with a GMA 245. Please see page 35-143 of the G3X Touch Installation Manual for more information.

Thanks,

Justin

Justin,

This I do understand, all I want is the G3X touch to display the selected Com and Mic plus the marker beacons as described in the manual.

Thanks,
