You cant beat the little Garmin as a stand alone Sam, wish I got
my 296 to talk to the box otherwise I would be happy.
I use Skydemon as a flight planning tool, that doesnt work on the
EFiS either so a tablet is essential.
Integration is a pain. Problem is the avionics change so quick,
we all end up with out of production kit these days.
Wheres Mike D when you need him !! :-)

Its the base map that the rest of the layers get laid
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 being
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
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
All in all a fun day.
