Assume the whatever you are reading for MP is off unless you calibrate the sensor.


Yup - If I had a Dynon system (D180, Skyview EMS, etc.) I could easily adjust MAP readings. Unfortunately, the Garmin G3X suite doesn't have a simple means (read: none that I can find) available to do this...

However, doing the same math on the ground yields a number what's within .01" of what the Garmin G3X, no adjustment needed.
