    Byonics GPS puck on AFS EFIS

    Has anyone used the GPS-2 puck available from Byonics with their EFIS system? If so, what setting did you use?

    Here are the specs:

    Byonics GPS receivers are 5-volt, WAAS enabled, WGS84, output 4800 baud NMEA 0183 serial and employ the SiRFStarIII chipset tracking up to 20 satellites.

    I use one for my APRS tracking transmitter and it works well. I'd like to use it as a back up GPS with my 3500S'

    4800bps is pretty slow. It's perfectly acceptable for APRS position reporting, but not great for synthetic vision. As a backup GPS, it would be fine.

    I used a byonic puck on my secondary af3500 as the only gps input to that device. I did not have synthetic vision. It worked great.

    It should work fine, it is the update rate not the baud rate that causes slow screen updates.
