Bendix /King recently announced a GPS/WAAS Display upgrade for the EFIS-40 & EFIS-50 systems on the TBM 700 & PC-12 aircraft. The Symbol Generator Software (SW) Modification (MOD) 15/01 will enable the EFIS 40/50 system to display the correct WAAS vertical deviation when GPS is selected as the navigation source and connected to a WAAS enabled GPS receiver via an ARINC 429 interface. This allows the KFC-325 autopilot to remain coupled to the EFIS system display when flying an LPV.
The upgrade also allows autopilot enabled output and display of lateral deviations and vertical guidance while on other WAAS
Separate annunciations may be required to support WAAS, depending on the GPS installation and supporting STC. The upgrade is
applicable to EFIS 40/50 SG 465 Symbol Generators on the TBM 700 and PC-12 aircraft having Part Numbers 066-04021-1108 throug
h -1114. The applicable SG 465 part numbers will be converted to P/N: 066-04021-1115.
Upgrade list price: $5,000. Southeast Aerospace will also be offering upgrade exchanges for non-WAAS units. Please Contact SEA
