Weather and ADS-B Traffic
The support of the IFD440/540 and EX5000 devices is the first integration
between the ADL satellite weather system and popular installed avionics displays.
All current ADL devices made for fixed installation (ADL150(B)/190/200) can
output the weather data over the RS232 wire connection. The format used
is the standard GDL90/Cabstone protocol. As the cockpit displays have no
control buttons for the ADL system, you control and trigger the weather
downloads over the normal ADLConnect app as you are used to.
Such an installation will have to be made by an avionics engineer.
The legal details are covered in the latest EASA minor change for the
installation of the ADL150(B)/190/200. Please note that your EX5000 will
have to run on software 8.2.2 or later to support this feature.
If not already installed please check in advance the cost of an EX5000
Flight Plan Transfer
If the current flight plan data should be transmitted at the same time from
the IFD or GTN/GNS device, the optional ADLRS232 combiner box will be required.
