UAVIONIX AV-30-E EXPERIMENTAL W/ AVLINK EXP
Amazing product, still learning the functionality
Great service. The installation is very easy. Beautifully arranged information loaded display. Will see how it flies.
At first I thought I made a mistake buying two of these, but after flying with them for 6 months, I have to say I honestly love them and Im glad I stuck with them. The customer support has been amazing and attentive. My biggest headache was excessive heading drift, for which uAvionix has just announced a software fix. It will prevent the unit from capturing a bad calibration on start-up / shut-down and prevent the problem. Im excited for it to arrive. The units can be trimmed by the user to calibrate any of the numbers that may be off from your steam gauges, such as airspeed and altitude. After trimming, my numbers stay dead-on. I paired mine with the Davtron temp probe and I really enjoy being able to see TAS and OAT readouts directly on the unit. These are great little units to get you by in style and on a budget.
Beware of updated model # that has upgraded internal circuit protection. Old part #s are still being stocked and should be changed out.
Bench tested only so far, but appears to be everything hoped for. Moderately easy to set up.
The av-30 provides a lot of information in one instrument. AS, Artificial Horizon, Altimeter, vertical trend, voltage, directional gyro, and more. You are able to configure the V speeds. Con’s limited navigation tracking. There is a av-30 simulator on the uavionix website. I was able to get familiar with the unit before it was installed. All-in-all, the instrument meets my expectations.
Really impressive fonctionnalties .Excellent lightning and reading. Have to confirm when airborne.Not yet installed in my panel because still unable to find install menu to set Vspeeds,speed units and barrio units. Not clearly shown in the on line manual. Matter of time.
VERY SIMPLE to install, performance outstanding, great addition to my panel to replace legacy vac gyros, and looks great
It is a very good instrament and I would give it 5 stars if the AOA would be more accurate. However it is an inferred AOA (Probeless) and i may not have it set up right... It is a very nice guage for the money and the artificial horizon does work very well!

Per the manufacturer: these will not display KMH.
There is a certified version of this unit. Please see Part# 11-17556. We are expecting first delivery of the certified version in January of 2020. Part # 11-17555 will not become certified, it will only be for experimental so for certified applications, be sure to order 11-17556.
Because the limit is 35 knots, it will not display anything until it is over that speed.
No. This unit does not show bank angle.
At this moment we do not have this information available as Uavionix has not released this information.
Per Uavionix: there is no vertical guidance at all. There is only the horizontal steering indicator when in DG Mode.
Yes, the gauge will have a green and red arc for the indicated airspeed.
Yes, The Garmin 495 provides NMEA output that can be received and displayed by the AV-30. The AV-30 supports NMEA protocol at baud rate speeds of 4800 and 9600, while "Aviation/moving map" protocol is fixed at a 9600 baud rate.
No. Per the installation manual, it can function without a GPS signal, however it will require a GPS signal for full functionality. The GPS signal must be supplied to the unit, it is not internal.
Yes, the Garmin 150XL sends AVI aviation format and NMEA format that can be displayed by the AV-30.
