OBS Mode on Avidyne IFD 440

My new IFD 440 works perfectly in GPS mode. When in OBS Mode, however, the course line on the Avidyne doesn’t match the OBS setting. For example if I want the magenta course line to be 140 degrees I have to set the OBS to 160. Is there a setting that needs an adjustment or am I missing something?

  • Good question. I don't have that problem on my 540. So first, are you running latest software on your 440? Second, send an email to Avidyne and you'll get your answer.

  • Sarasota Avionics emailed the install manual. Chapter 7.5.9. Calibrating the external CDI/HSI takes 10 minutes.
