Changes (iEFIS):

A3.0.0.2  8 July 2016


This release brings with it the usual round of minor fixes for reported problems. The most notable fix is elimination of the repeated waypoint arrival message if arriving at the last waypoint in a flight plan. Also handling of filenames that are longer than 31 characters are now correctly truncated at operating system level so these files can be properly opened, deleted etc. Filenames that are longer than 32 characters should not be used however - if the first 31 characters of two filenames are the same, the system will always only find the first one stored in a disk structure. 

Additions:

Confirmation dialogs for ending or flipping a flight plan

New menu item: Readout of all hobbs, tach and airframe timers (this means it is no longer necessary to make provision for this on a normal screen).

Changes:

The most notable change is related to the GLS system. This now works in a way that emulates a real ILS closer. Also, you can now arm a GLS approach without the current navigation solution changing. The armed GLS results in the HSI showing the solution for the GLS in addition to the current navigation solution (which could perhaps be a GPS track to a waypoint). The same goes for activating a GLS via an intercept. The HSI now also shows textual indicators showing “ARM”, “ICP” or “ACT” to show the state of both real ILS as well as GLS.

The GLS, once armed will activate automatically when certain conditions are met: 

1) You are within +/-20 degrees of the centerline of the runway
2) Your track is pointing within +/-45 degrees towards the centerline of the runway
3) Your distance to the theshold is less than your intercept distance (in GLS Setup) + 2 miles
4) You are below the glide slope

The Glide slope indicator will show a flashing “GLS” if you are above the glideslope if GLS is started in any mode.

Changes (iBOX):

Version 21 fixes a calculation error related to using the non-linear ASI correction functions below 50mph or airspeed. Note: this update is only relevant if you use these functions in the instruments setup menu.

Installation:

To install, download the update package which contains software for all iEFIS components and update instructions.
