I connected the Geosat to the PC and launched Geosat Suite, Suite shows this message:

"Data on Navigator may be corrupted. Please follow these steps in order to restore the data integrity"

I follow the procedure but, as the Suite restars, always show the same message.

 

In this case you have to update the software manually (it means without using Geosat Suite).

As first step you have to download the "SWUpdate.zip folder" using the link below 

http://cloud.avmap.us/suite/SW/C03/SWUpdate.zip

 

After downloading it on you PC, unzip the folder to obtain the unzipped "SWUpdate".

Then delete the zipped folder SWUpdate.zip.

 

Into the SWUpdate folder you will find other 2 folders:

 

SD

NAND

 

Connect Geosat 6 to the PC and do not launch the Suite.

 

ATTENTION: Now it is required to find, the 2 disks "removible disk" and "local disk" of your Geosat 6.

As connected Geosat 6 to the PC, these 2 disks should appear on the "My Computer" section. Each one is identified by a letter, for istance:

 

Removible Disk (F):

Local Disk (G):

 

( for Mac OSX users: on Mac system you will not find removible disk and local disk, but, as connected Geosat 6 to the computer, on the Desktop of the Mac you will find 2 new disks, named NONAME and UNNAME )

 

The 2 disks have also a different content; removible disk can be recognized because it is the one that contains the following folders:

 

CHARTS

Geosat6

Loquendo

Voice

 

Local disk instead will contain the following files and folders:

 

MP4 (folder)

Languages (folder)

Geosat6Start.exe (file)

OS.ver (file)

Serialcode.dat (file)

 

Now it is possible to copy the files and folders to recover all the system.

Open the removible disk and in the same time open the "SD" folder previously downloaded.

 

Copy the content of the SD folder into the removible disk:

IMPORTANT: you do not have to copy the SD "folder" directly, but you have to:

 

- open the SD folder

- select all folders you can find inside

- copy and paste all these folders into the removible disk of the navigator

 

(For Mac OSX users: copy the content of the "SD" folder into the disk that already contains the folders: Geosat6, FONTS, Loquendo.. etc)

 

If the copy and paste have been done successfully, the computer should ask you to overwrite the existing folders, then it will be sufficient to confirm the overwriting of these

folders to complete the procedure.

 

Then open the NAND folder and copy the content into the local disk of the navigator (the other disk we described here above).

 

Follow the same identical operation and suggestions provided for the removible disk.

 

(For Mac OSX users: copy the content of the NAND folder into the disk that already contains the folders MP4, Languages, .. etc)

 

The last step of the procedure is the restart of the Operative System of the unit:

 

RESTART OF THE OPERATIVE SYSTEM OF THE UNIT:

After the copying of the files as described above, remove safetly the unit from PC and disconnect the USB cable.

Start the unit and wait the main page loading. The main page of the Geosat is the blue page with the 2 main icons (Navigation and MultiMedia reader).

Then connect the Geosat 6 to the wall power cable.

 

Now use 2 pens or 2 pointed objects and follow this procedure:

 

- with one of the pointed object press and hold the button that is into the little hole near the SD slot card (it is on the low part of the unit, 

  it is the hole without lables or writtens) and DO NOT release it.

- with the other pointed object press (only one time) the button that is into the little hole with "reset" indication.

 

- Now the display of the unit should switch to a blue page with some percentage counters 0%-100%. If yes please RELEASE ALSO THE FIRST BUTTON and wait that the unit restarts automatically. If yes it means that also the Operative System have been correctly restarted and the unit should show again the main page (the one with the 2 main icons (Navigation and MultiMedia reader).

 

If you are in trouble with last procedure please download the video tutorial from this link:

http://cloud.avmap.us/download/OSG6_restart.mp4


(If after pressing the restart buttons you will receive an error message on the display of the unit, please write an email to [email protected] specifying the title

of this Faq, the error message you receive and communicate the MOD number of the unit itself. The MOD number is reported on the paper label of the unit itself and it is like

P1Mxxxxx. AvMap Technical Support operators will reply you providing the correct link to use for the downloading of the "SWUpdate.zip" folder specific for your unit).

 

After this last procedure click on the Navigation icon and enter into the internal Navigation system to check if everything is ok:

Click on Menu - System Info - Software: you must have:

 

Software: 2.29.286R

OS: 1.3.73R

 

If yes it means that the update of the Software and of the Operative System have been concluded correctly.

AvMap Suite for EKP V is not compatible with Linux, but is compatible with Windows (minimum requirement Windows ME) and Mac OSX too (minimum requirement Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard 2009 )

It is possible to convert the data stored in the EKP / Geopilot to a gpx format and vice versa, in order to view them in Google Earth or other mapping software, using the GPX CONVERTER tool, that can be downloaded for free form the AvMap website.

1. Download The GPS Converter here!

2. Unzip the file and extract the exe file together with the instructions.

 

Conversion from USRIMG to GPX
 

1. Extract the memory card form the navigator and read it with a memory card reader

2. Copy from the memory card the USRIMG.BIN file and save it in your PC.

3. Run the Converter.exe then press the "USERIMG to GPX" button on the program console.

4. Select the USRIMG.BIN file to be converted ( previously saved on your PC), then select the destination folder in which the GPX files will be created.
In that folder will be saved GPX format copies of the user data stored in the USERIMG.BIN file.
NOTE : each user data will be stored in a different GPX file. In case an object in the USRIMG.BIN file stores more than one route, several GPX files will be created, each with one route.


Conversion from GPX to USRIMG
 

1. Run the Converter.exe thenPress "GPX to USERIMG" on the program console

2. Select the GPX file to be converted ( previously saved on your PC)

3. Select the empty USRIMG.BIN file present in the GPS Converter folder (the GPX file will be converted and inserted in this file)

4. Extract the memory card form the navigator and read it with a memory card reader and then Copy the newly modified USERIMG.BIN file in the main folder of the memory card.

In order to see the new data on the navigator, load them using File Manager function.
An empty USRIMG file is included, but also not empty files can be used as well. New data will be added to them until the maximum capacity will be reached.
NOTE : due to memory restraints the space available in the USRIMG.BIN file for user data is limited. No more than 1000 Waypoints, 5000 Track points and 100 legs routes can be saved from a single file and no more than 60 files can be stored in an USRIMG.BIN

The Farmnavigator Auto-steering System controls your vehicle steering, and helps you stay on track following with great precision the guide lines set on the Farmnavigator.

This way, you can switch from the "light bar" system to automatic driving, meaning you can focus on controlling the implements instead of worrying about the steering wheel, which improves the quality and effectiveness of the job. Such a system is very useful in scarce visibility conditions, in case of fog and dusty fields.

You can disengage the auto steering by firmly grasping the steering wheel; vice versa you can engage it very easily by tapping the corresponding icon on the Farmnavigator display.
The Farmnavigator Autosteering system supports all vehicle interface types: Mechanical, ISO/CAN,
Hydraulic and Factory steer ready. Custom install kits are available to simplify installation for over 750 models of agricultural machines.
The MDU mounts on existing steering wheel without requiring its removal thanks to the Patented universal ring gear. The MDU simply clamps on and off for fast and easy transfer across vehicles of different brands and types (tractors, sprayers, spreaders or combines).


There are two types of calibration procedures:

1. Horizon alignment calibration:
execute this calibration procedure to align the horizon line of the Ultra with the aircrafts straight & level flight attitude.

2. Compass calibration:
The purpose of this procedure is to compensate magnetic disturbances the Ultra is subject to, due to aircraft metal structures and electromagnetic components. These disturbances, if not compensated, could alter the heading value provided by the system. For this reason the magnetometer is disabled before the magnetometer calibration procedure is executed.
The procedure requires to point the aircraft nose in 4 directions (north, east, south and west
oriented to magnetic north). The total duration for this procedure is about 20 minutes.
The procedure is described in the user manual.

IMPORTANT: When the magnetometer of the Ultra is not enabled the Ultra uses GPS
source to show COG (course over ground) on the compass. To enable compass heading it
is necessary to calibrate the magnetometer. In case both GPS and magnetometer sources
are lost the compass becomes RED and is out of order.

IMPORTANT:
Before you proceed with the compass calibration, make sure that the horizon
line of the Ultra is aligned with the aircrafts straight & level flight attitude (see paragraph 3.1)

IMPORTANT:
The compass calibration procedure must be executed in an open field clean
of magnetic disturbances (we recommend at the compass rose of your airport).
Note: Most airports have a compass rose, which is a series of lines marked out on a ramp
or maintenance run up area where there is no magnetic interference. Lines, oriented to
magnetic north, are painted every 30° which is used to perform a compass calibration.




You can power the Ultra EFIS from an 10 to 35 Vdc supply.
Mount on the power wire (RED) the 1A fuse holder, provided in the box, to protect against short circuits.
Yes, the Ultra EFIS comes with an External GPS receiver.

Connect the external GPS receiveron the back side of the Ultra to the GPS port. The GPS receiver comes with a 1,5 meter cable and is designed for use inside the aircraft.

Note: an additional gps extension cable of 2 meter is available. The GPS receiver can be mounted to any convenient surface that has a clear view of the sky. It can be mounted on the aircraft’s dashboard using the included Velcro strip. The GPS receiver must have a clear view of the sky in order to receive satellite signals. GPS uses “line of sight” signals to locate and track satellites.
If the signals are obstructed by dense objects such as aluminum, steel or even heavy ice, the Ultra will not operate properly. Signals may also be blocked by heated wind screens (fibreglass, plexiglass and other plastics are normally transparent to GPS signals). If you find that the Ultra does not locate GPS FIX quickly or consistently, moving the location of the GPS receiver a few inches often provides a better view of the sky.
The Pitot and static ports on the back of the Ultra are equipped with 1/8” NPT female fittings. To connect the aircraft Pitot and static lines to the Ultra, you must use standard 1/8” NPT male fittings at the end of each of the lines. Installation along with other mechanical or digital altimeters and airspeed indicators is supported by mean of a T coupler (not included in the Ultra box).
Connect the Pitot line to the port labeled PITOT and the static line to the port labeled STATIC.

IMPORTANT: Use flexible plastic tubes and make sure the tubes fit tight on the NPT Pitot and static ports and can not get loose due to vibration.

IMPORTANT: We recommend to test the Pitot-static system for leakage after any alteration.

• 2 stroke Air cooled: Rotax 447 UL SCDI, Rotax 503 UL DCDI
• 2 Stroke Liquid cooled: Rotax 582 UL DCDI, Rotax 618 UL DCDI
• 4 Stroke Liquid cooled: Rotax 912 DCDI series, Rotax 912S DCDI series, Rotax 914 DCDI series

These engines types are already pre-configured in EngiBOX, so you just need to choose your model in the initialization procedure. The engine initialization procedure is necessary to pair EngiBOX to the connected engine
model.

EngiBOX has several sensor input ports, which can be occupied variably according to the connected
engine type.
ATTENTION:  Make sure to properly calibrate attitude before proceeding with Compass Calibration.
the magnetometer calibration data is invalidated after every attitude calibration procedure (full attitude calibration and horizon alignment).

The Compass Calibration procedure must be executed in-flight and requires to steer the aircraft in 4 directions and execute some pitch up/down maneuvers. The total duration for this procedure is about 4 minutes.


Press MENU > TOOLS > EFIS > Compass Calibration.
The screen switches to Primary Flight Display mode, where a flight director (a magenta frame) shows the maneuvers to perform. Follow the magenta frame until the procedure is finished.
Assuming that the calibration is started with the aircraft heading North, the steps required are:

1.  Maintaining heading 000° execute: pitch up + 20°, back to straight flight and then pitch down -20°

2. Turn left to heading 270° by performing a standard rate turn (the proper bank will be shown by the flight director). The target heading for each step is shown as a magenta reference inside the heading tape.

3. Execute pitch up/down maneuvers as described in step #1

4. Repeat steps #2 and #3 for headings 180° and 090°, until reaching again the original heading.

5. At the end of a successful calibration procedures the compass instruments is enabled (i.e. red cross removed) and the HSI instrument correctly shows AHRS as data source, meaning that magnetic compass data are now available to the EFIS system.

Note: it’s not required to start the procedure heading north. Any starting direction is acceptable.
Note: If the calibration fails or the compass indicator is not enabled, repeat the calibration procedure. If several calibration attempts fails review the installation location of the A2. Magnetic disturbance could be too high in the selected area.



The small and light weighted ADAHRS module easily fits into the aircraft as it can be installed in any orientation (a proper calibration procedure must be performed). It is suggested to install the A2 aligned with the aircraft longitudinal axis, as it simplifies the attitude calibration process.

The right position should be:
- Near the pitot and static lines
-  In a location clear of strong magnetic or electromagnetic disturbances as much as possible.
- Avoid installing the A2 ADAHRS near electronic equipment (other digital EFIS, radios, transponders, etc), AC or variable DC cables, alternators, electrical motors, ferrous materials, etc. In such cases the proper behavior of the compass is not guaranteed (i.e.
the compass may be crossed as “out of order” or may give erroneous indications).

Hint: Use a hand-held compass to verify the magnetic disturbance in the area selected for installation. If the needle shows relevant changes or unstable indication, the location is not suitable for installation. Make sure to perform this test with all on-board electronic devices switched ON.



Scenario A.

No calibration needed.






Scenario B.
A2 ADAHRS  is aligned with the aircraft longitudinal axis, is not aligned with straight & level flight attitude but pitch and roll offsets are present: a Horizon Alignment procedure is required.






Scenario C.
A2 ADAHRS is not aligned with aircraft longitudinal axis,
nor with straight & level flight attitude:
Full Attitude Calibration procedure is required.
 


Horizon Alignment
Press MENU > STRUMENTI > EFIS > Horizon Alignment.
1. Make sure the aircraft is in straight and level flight attitude
2. Press the joystick to record a sample of pitch and roll angles



Full Attitude Calibration
Press MENU > STRUMENTI > EFIS > Full Attitude Calibration.

1. Select if the maneuver will be pitch up or down. For tricycle aircraft the pitch up maneuver can be performed by pushing the tail (pitch up), while tail draggers will execute a pitch down maneuver by raising the tail.

2. Reset A2 ADAHRS calibration data; select Start. Wait until the reset phase is completed.

3. Set the aircraft in level and straight flight attitude by using jacks or blocks (or by asking a friend to push or lift the tail and hold). Press ENTER (joystick click) to record the sample in level & straight flight.

4. Set the aircraft in a pitch up (or down) attitude and press ENTER to record the pitch up/down sample. WARNING: be very careful not to change the aircraft heading while performing the pitch up /down maneuver.

5. Set values to A2 by pressing ENTER. Wait a few minutes for the sensor to stabilize and realign. If pitch and roll after a few minutes are still not aligned fine-tune pitch and roll offset by executing a Horizon Alignment procedure.

The EKP V switches on automatically everytime the aircraft engine is started: this is the normal EKP V behaviour when you switch it off using the power button.

The Docking Station includes a protection circuit to protect the system form overfeeding. We suggest anyway to avoid high electric discharge , e.g. a voltage 10 times ahigher than the allowed 12-35V could damage the system hardware. To avoid this you may want to add a switch between the docking station and the aircraft electrical system.
