The AV-30’s GPS interface is an optional RS-232 serial input that is compatible with the industry standard “Aviation” output provided by most panel-mounted GPS units, and NMEA serial interfaces provided by most hand-held GPS units. This is a text/binary protocol output by the GPS navigator that contains situational awareness information such as ground speed, track, distance to destination, cross track, etc., and is typically utilized by remote mapping/display products to provide additional pilot awareness. Please reference the table below for compatible GPS sources and the required GPS and AV-30 settings.

This serial interface may be connected in parallel between multiple AV-30-C units and is supported in both AI and DG modes.
