Larry my software upgrade was a customer service. And as such was free of charge. Seemed pretty universal. Wire instal is painful so I doubt that'll be free unless you got a really nice shop.

Hello Bart,

Not sure which pin 41 is being discussed, but pin 41 on GNS 430W connector P4001 is indeed the output for RS-232 port #3 and could be configured for ADS-B Out+ and used to supply this data to the GTX330ES.

P.S. The email address assigned to your VAF account seems to be broken, so we couldn't respond to your G3Xpert submitted question.

Steve

Sometimes it's the simple things: did you confirm that you have a common signal GRD for your 430W and your 330ES? Without that you will not get the 232 signal.

Steve, concur the label says RS232 however in the install manual diagram on the far right side of the page it says pin 41 is an input port not an output port. I know that makes no sense and I assume this is an error. I'm already dismantling the panel. I'm going go to another output port and see if my luck changes.

Hello Bart,

Not sure what you are looking at, but on page 4-15 of the Rev. L GNS 400W installation manual it clearly shows that pin 41 is the transmit side of RS-232 Port 3.

We emailed this information, but it bounced back indicating that the email address you provided to VAF is incorrect. If you email G3Xpert@garmin.com (not through VAF) so we can get your real email address, we can do a better job of supporting you.

Thanks,
Steve

Page 4-2 has it wrong but may have been fixed/changed in later revisions

Ok Steve, I was only able to download rev B from the internet. I checked for revisions and didn't see any. In rev B the label RS232 output is shown but the far right side table shows "I" for input.

So I've got the panel field stripped again and moving to port 58. This label is RS232 out 4. The table on the far right shows "O" output.

Had to start all over with the wire. Pulling pins from an existing panel is a bitch.

Does 58 seem ok in Rev L?

Not sure why the kickback: ck98bart@hotmail.com

Steve, email sent.

For the others I?ve moved the 430 wire from port 41 to port 58 on the P4001 plug and kept same pin 22 on the 330 J3301 plug. Reconfigured the settings as many ways as I can imagine that might work.

Still no ADSB flag. I know this cant be as hard as it been to get this working. Working on moving pins from a 5 year old panel is not fun so I'm still hoping its a configuration setting but I'm out of ideas.

Any other suggestions?

Are you sure you're putting the pin in the correct hole? Working behind the panel is hard, it's easy to look at a picture of the connector from one side when the pin goes in the other.

Yes, the ADS-B Out serial link from the GNS 530W to the GTX 330ES is a separate dedicated link that is required.

Thanks,
Steve
Thanks for the info. Larry
