Its the base map that the rest of the layers get laid over.
Do you have a Nav screen on your Dynon ? If so does it get
all the input from the Garmin ?

What is a raster map? I use my old Garmn GPS map
connected to the D180 and I also use Avare on a cheap tablet
powered by a Stratux.
Here's a picture of my setup.

Thanks Sam, Interesting report. Makes me glad I fitted a
second pump when I read it. Got any findings yet ?
Do you use a raster map on your Dynon, what Nav data do
you use ? Pocket FMS ?

I made a little trip to Topeka this
weekend to see the grands. Nice time was had by all.
Non-eventful weather and the winds were okay in both
directions, but sometimes I do wish I had cabin heat. As
long as the sun is shining in lower temps, I'm good. My
old Dynon is showing everything in the green.
My route of flight takes me just over the lower end of
Whiteman AFB, which is the Air Force's main B-2 bomber
base. Sometimes I'll see a billion dollar bomber on the
ramp, like today. The top of the control zone is 3,500
feet and I was heading east at 5,500. It always seems a
bit strange to fly over Whiteman, feels like maybe I'm
As you may know I have an electric fuel injection system
and have two Walbro pumps to deliver fuel at 40 psi. When
I fly West, I'm on pump #1 and East I use pump #2. Both
pumps are on for takeoff and landing phases. About an hour
from home I noticed my mixture getting very lean. As I
was fooling with the mixture I suddenly got a LOW FUEL
PRESSURE warning. I flipped on pump #1 and things went
back to normal. Not believing what I was seeing I tried
turning #1 off, and the engine just about died.
Okay, I get the hint. Turn #1 back on and #2 off, just in
case it is spewing parts. Rest of the flight was
uneventful and I didn't touch a thing until I got on the
ground. Looks like I'll be ordering a new pump and a new
10 micron fuel filter.
All in all a fun day.
