Re: Autopilot

Dave Dugas

Thanks Phil. My data wire to the autopilot is connected to the TX pin on the HC-06 Bluetooth module and it connects to the Avare app fine.but no GPS data is received by the autopilot. This setup worked when I was using my old ipaq with Anywhere Map. I'm trying to keep it wireless. The TruTrak Pictorial Pilot will track a heading without a GPS source, but I still have to adjust the heading for wind correction. Your system sounds great. I'm going to keep trying for the wireless though. Thank you again.... Dave D

I have a TruTrak Vizion385 in my RV6A. I set it up to accept two separate GPS sources (wired) through a selector switch. Source 1 is a line from my Garmin 250XL. Source 2 is iLevil AW3 and is also a wired connection. My iPad apps (FlyQ EFB or Xavion) should be able to push a route to the iLevil via WiFi that will then direct the autopilot through the hard wired connection. I will be doing more inflight testing but ground test shows GPS OK to the autopilot.

Thanks Paul. I saw that one but I didn't get much usable info from it. I'll be digging deeper into it though. Thank you.

Hey Dave!  I have not done what you want, but I did see something on the Avare forums about it:

I don't know if that helps or not, but it sounds like it is possible.

Hi there.
I've been flying a bit since I installed the Uavionix package in my Q2, which is working perfectly since it was installed. No adjustments or settings necessary. I'm using Avare as my nav and ads-b system, and traffic and weather is great. 
The cherry on top would be if I could get my tablet to send data to my TruTrak autopilot through Bluetooth, so I can let the autopilot navigate the course on my Avare. I'm using a HC-06 Bluetooth serial adapter which is programed and linked to my TruTrak, however no data is transmitted to the autopilot. If anyone else is successful with this setup, or knows a source of information about it, it would be helpful. It just may be as simple as a com port setting, or a setting in the Avare app, but with my luck it may be impossible altogether. I know it sounds like I'm spoiled...... I am. Thank you 😊
