Entegra EXP5000 PFD AutoPilot configuration Cirrus

This is informational use only, all inquiries regarding the Auto Pilot issue below must be referred to Cirrus.

Issue: shop is able to save Auto Pilot as "Not Installed".

Workaround: None, this is required by Cirrus 


Cirrus requires the PFD validate the configuration options, and only allow the options that Cirrus sold. 

The only valid configuration without an integrated autopilot is:
GPS1: 430, VHF1: 430 GPS2: None, Autopilot: None

The valid configurations with a 430 & a 420 require selection of an Stec-55x, Stec55-SR, or Avidyne DFC90.

The tech/pilot will see a ‘NO COMMUNICATION WITH AUTOPILOT MESSAGE’ if they decide to go that route.
