I am looking for some assistance in getting my autopilot to connect to the GPS.

My new Europa has a Trio EZ Pilot control head connected to a Bendix Honeywell AV8OR GPS.

The GPS is connected to the EZ Pilot by a mini B usb to serial lead, which in turn has two wires to the EZ pilot data feed and earth.

I have followed Honeywells instructions on setting up the GPS but have found two conflicting sets of instructions, one saying use 4800 baud and the other 9600 baud. I have tried both settings but still the EZ pilot sys "No GPS" on booting up.

Any clues from a fellow AV8OR user please?

I've had only one encounter with Trio and the tech guy/CEO of the
company had my problem worked out in a couple of minutes. Why not give
them a call and see what they can do?
