No one wants 10.2 more than Avidyne.  They have no reason in the world to be purposely delaying the release.  No amount of complaining or questioning here will speed up the process.   I love the 540 I have now and when 10.2 comes,  it comes.  In the meantime, I tell everyone I can about how great the 540 is because 1) I truly believe it and 2) when Avidyne succeeds, we all benefit.

My 10.1.0.2 setup works very well... I'm very happy with it... I would rather have a bug free release later than a bug-ridden release sooner... esp for avionics...  my 440's are not my iPhones... ;-)

You are correct, but Avidyne has been uncommonly clumsy with the roll out of 10.2.  They are the ones who announced its almost immediate availability in April 2016.  It is their web site that still says it was approved by FAA in January 2017.  These are unforced errors and do not give either owners or potential purchasers confidence that Avidyne has their s#it together.  In fact, it reminds me of the personal computer business of the 1980s, where vaporware was the rule of the day.

Well, the slope of my aviation frustration curve is climbing ever more steeply and the slope of my aviation participation curve is diving. They are soon to intersect. Wanna buy a Cardinal RG?

It looks like we are in the final turn, we just don't know the course length!

Regardless, doubt that you'd really want your 430W back in the plane, all things considered. ;)

I have a concern about the 10.2 delay and my warranty.

I believe it has been posted in this thread that the 10.2 install costs will be covered while under warranty and with the original owner.

I was an early supporter of the 540 and had a May 2015 install/purchase date.  

Obviously the end of my 2 year warranty is within sight, but the release date of the 10.2 is nowhere within sight.  I have (to my regret) actually delayed/avoided a few minor avionics squawks thinking that the squawks could be addressed at the same time as the 10.2 update while the aircraft was at the avionics shop.  Like many, my patience is running thin  (no finger pointing here for Avidyne/FAA: facts are facts). 

What are other early install customers thinking about this timeline?
Let's not go into the discussion about the additional 2 year warranty with contract signing.

I don't think that installing the new software, even if you had to pay for it, would burn a hole in your pocket. It's not the financial consequences that weigh much on Avidyne clients, it's this inability to get this thing through with the FAA that is bothering. An almost 1 year delay has nothing to do with the FAA being inefficient, it is clear that when Avidyne made the announcement about a year ago the software was not ready. I don't buy any conspiracy theory. I am sure that Avidyne is at least as eager as us to get the product out asap, but if it hasn't happened yet, most of the delay is to blame on them.
Having said that, I am looking forward to the new software and I like the boxes more than I liked my Gs.

Previous software revisions have been easy for pilot to do and AI to sign off.

Doesn't seem to be a good business model for Avi to pay for updates on a continuing basis.

Delays? Beaten to death.

As one evaluates 10.2 timeline, I think Avi expected to have it closed out and done before they were actually able to do so. To blame FAA assumes that FAA has had the submission for some time, which I don't believe is the case.

So I think it all comes down to Avi resources, which is a chronic issue.

Did Jake leave avi? I hope not.

I would think at most your shop might charge you two hours, maybe $200, to update 10.2 when it's ready. Pretty insignificant when you consider the features. We all want it yesterday, but it will be worth it when it comes.

AviJake is still here, he is working on projects and what not.

We want 10.2 to be released as bad as you all do, it's been a long journey with roadblocks, speed bumps and misc items as you know and may not know.

Some positive news is on the horizon but out of fear of jinxing it, I won't say anything further. What I can say is that we are at a stage that hinges upon one answer and indications point to an answer we were looking for.

Release 10.2 is a free update from us. The labor for the update is not covered by the warranty, however, we have rolled in new features on the back end that should reduce the time and effort it takes to complete the update.

It may be the IFD 550 that is having the issues rather than the 10.2 update itself.

Sure would be awesome if the release happens in the next few weeks...  my plane is going into the shop in a week or so to do some upgrades.  Adding an IFD 440 to go along with the existing IFD 540 :)

Once it happens, they should tell us it happened.

I predict that in the future Avidyne will be less prone to discussing anything not-yet-certified.

Very cool. Could someone suggest how #13 (designated waypoint info) might be useful? It seems to be a favorite of Jake but I'm having trouble seeing where it would be used. When might you want nav info to a single saved waypoint not in your flight plan?

EDIT: Still there. I just missed it.

Hope release comes soon.

Hi teeth6-

I like this feature. I have been asked in the past for my distance and bearing to a point not in my flight plan. I cannot recall the exact circumstances, but several times I have found it useful to load a waypoint into the #2 GPS, and this would allow me to accomplish the same thing using the 540.

Regards,

Bob

For general situational awareness.  For example; in my local area (Y19), when in the practice area which starts a few miles southwest of the field and extends out some distance, it is useful to know your distance and bearing from the field when both giving and receiving position reports.

Jepp updated its JDM software to accommodate 10.2.0.0 a couple of months ago, we though the release was imminent then.  Hopefully it will be released soon so they can start working no the EX5000 software updated to be able to display ADS-B traffic and weather from the Avidyne Skytrax.

The FAA has just granted STC/TSO approval for Release 10.2. This applies to the IFD440, 410, 550, 545, 540, 510.

Avidyne Sales and Marketing will have info on how to get it in your airplane shortly (most are deployed to various trade shows right now).

Are you sure he isn't down in Texas just for the sunshine?  It's been awfully cold here in the Northeast lately.  Compelling reason by itself.

If you have signoff authority for something like this for your aircraft then you can do it. We highly recommend that an Avidyne approved dealer does the upgrade. It is a free update and there is a provision to cover labor under warranty for the time it takes to do the update. 


I just want to confirm that what AviSimpson stated here is true before I head over to the local deal to get the upgrade installed.

From the above, my take is:

v10.2 is now "approved", but not yet released for consumption.  Hopefully available soon for our shops to install... 

The new Avidyne iPad simulator is very cool though.

Not correct, there is no provision for covering the labor. I was incorrect. We did make some improvement on the update itself so the update should take less time than others in the past.

Appreciate the clarification,  although I just today insisted to my Avidyne Dealer (in PRC, Az) based on previous Avidyne statements, that the "free update" install would be covered by Avidyne...
