IMPORTANT:Press “OK”, and then CLOSE and OPEN Spad again. Go back to the Serial Devices settings and turn your com port ON. RESTART SPAD.
As it is a beta, DO NOT USE unless you are willing to lose your SPAD data or bindings.
FOR ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE BETA, PLEASE CONTACT US. THANKS!
IF you do not enable the Beta LVAR features, Firmware v1.2.0 will still work fine – you just won’t be able to use the GPS tab.
LVARS are required to use the new GPS tab of the Class Echo for controlling the G1000 / GNS 530 / GNS 430. It is currently a Beta feature in SPAD. Please follow these steps to gain access to the features.
Go to Settings – > Application Settings – > Expert -> Select “Beta” from Update Channel. RESTART SPAD NEXT.
Open SPAD next and turn on LVAR support in Settings – > Application Settings – > Simulations – > LVAR Support.
