Ever since i had my DFC90 installed, I've been getting super annoying "Caution, Underspeed" warnings on landing rollout.  So you're rolling down the runway listening for exit instructions from the tower, and the DFC is bitching and complaining that I'm going too slow. :)

I assume this doesn't happen to everyone, or it would be a much bigger deal.  Any ideas as to why this would be happening?

Assuming you have a Cirrus, you are hearing this because your flap switch is not connected to the DFC90, so it assumes that you are flying with flaps up.

You have two choices; have the flap switch connected to the DFC90, or always use the autopilot disconnect when operating at speeds below ~80 knots; you won't hear the caution when the autopilot is in AP READY state.

The flap switch is properly connected, since I get the appropriate flap overspeed warnings.
