GNS 530/430 power up.

Recommended Posts

I do not know if it should work this way but the GNS 530 and 430 power up from the AVIONICS MASTER SWITCH even when the BATTERY MASTER SWITCH is OFF.

 

In a cold a dark cockpit like the Cessna 172 just switch on the AVIONICS MASTER SWITCH and GNS comes on.

 

Do we not need to put the battery on or ground supply first?

XP11 Beta or XP10 ? 

 

The system is rather dumb: it just reads the X-Plane "sim/cockpit/electrical/avionics_on" dataref and use power or not based on the value returned.

 

If this dataref returns 1, it powers on.

If this dataref returns 1 when it shouldn't, it is either an X-Plane bug, or the aircraft overriding the expected behaviour (either via script, or via plane maker options - if any ).

I am testing in XP11pb6 but will test in XP10 as well.

It was with the default Cessna 172 in XP11 and does not happen with GTN 750/650.

 

The main reason I ask is I do not have a AVIONICS MASTER SWITCH in the BELL 429.
