1. Introduction
This guide is intended to instruct aircraft owners how to replace a Garmin GPS 400(W)/GNS
430(W)/GPS 500(W)/GNS 530(W) with an Avidyne IFD4XX/IFD5XX Nav/Com/GPS
Navigator as a preventive maintenance activity as described in CFAR14 Part 43.3 and Part 43
Appendix A.
1.1 Are You and Your Aircraft Eligible For This Exchange?
If you can answer “Yes” to each of the questions below, then you are permitted to perform
this exchange on your own in accordance with CFAR 14 Part 43.3 and Part 43 Appendix A.
If you answer “No” or “I don’t know” to any of these questions/tests then it is unlikely you
are permitted to perform this exchange on your own and you should consult an approved
installation shop. Avidyne Customer Support can supply the list of approved installation
shops, if needed.

7
If your Garmin unit is powered by 28VDC, then you can skip this
question.
If you are replacing a GPS400(W) with an IFD410 or replacing a
GPS500(W) with an IFD510 then you can skip this question.
Can you confirm that electrical bus that the IFD will be connected to is
either a 28V ± 3V system OR that if it is connected to a 14V ± 3V system,
then the circuit breakers guarding the IFD unit are at least 7.5 A?
8
Can you confirm that to the best of your knowledge, there are no known
installation problems (e.g. bent pins, inability to seat in the tray, etc)

Avidyne strongly recommends the following equipment is on-hand and/or preparation steps
taken prior to starting the exchange process:
•
Only attempt this process during normal Avidyne Tech Support business
hours (Monday through Friday, from 8:00AM to 5:00PM EDT/ 12002100UTC). We don’t expect any problems when attempting this procedure
but if issues or questions arise, we want to ensure you have immediate
support and calling within those hours should ensure that;
•
Have a laptop/mobile device positioned in the seat next to you that can play
the instructional video on;
•
Have a mobile phone ready with Avidyne Tech Support number handy (1888-723-7592);
•
Plug the aircraft into an external power connection, if available;
•
Review a section of the instructional video, then perform that section and
repeat that cycle until complete. The video can be accessed using this link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k10VHzM7CxI;
•
If at any point you run into an issue, call Avidyne Tech Support immediately.

1.4 Exchange Process Flow Chart
You were able to answer "Yes" to all of the questions in Section 1.1 of this document
Record all configuration settings of the Garmin unit to be removed
Watch the video then physically remove the Garmin unit to be replaced
Watch the video then install the new Avidyne IFD
Configure the Avidyne IFD to match the removed Garmin unit configuration
Perform a Ground Ops check of the newly installed Avidyne IFD
Perform a Flight Ops check of the newly installed Avidyne IFD
Replace the Garmin AFMS and ICA with the Avidyne AFMS and ICA and make a log book entry
For planning purposes, a smooth exchange should take approximately 60 minutes from start
to finish, not including the recommended flight ops check.
No part of this exchange process will be paid by Avidyne Corporation however if a problem
is encountered during the process, don’t hesitate to contact Avidyne Technical Support. The
U.S. Toll Free number is 1-888-723-7592. International toll free numbers are listed at
http://www.avidyne.com/contact/intphones.asp
Customer/product support issues can be emailed as well at: techsupport@avidyne.com
1.5 Other Requirements or Limitations
In replacing a Garmin GPS 400(W)/GNS 430(W)/GPS 500(W)/GNS 530(W) unit with the
IFD4XX/IFD5XX, the currently approved interfaces and capabilities of the GPS 400(W)/GNS
430(W)/GPS 500(W)/GNS 530(W) must be duplicated in the IFD4XX/IFD5XX replacement.
Appendix B contains the list of approved interfaces.
To be configured in the IFD4XX/IFD5XX, capabilities and equipment interfaces must
have been approved in the original Garmin GPS 400(W)/GNS 430(W)/GPS
500(W)/GNS 530(W) installation. If equipment was added and interfaced to the original
Garmin equipment that was not approved as part of the original installation or an approved
add-on then this exchange process should not be attempted since there may be no installation
basis for that extra equipment.
600-00316-000 Rev 02
Page 6 of 39
IFD4XX & IFD5XX Series NAV/COM/GPS Navigator Exchange Guide
By following the instructions in this document and duplicating the originally GPS
400(W)/GNS 430(W)/GPS 500(W)/GNS 530(W) setup configurations, the replacement
IFD4XX/IFD5XX will interface to the same equipment and provide the same features.
The IFD4XX/5XX has a number of optional capabilities, just like the GPS 400(W)/GNS
430(W)/GPS 500(W)/GNS 530(W) to include:
•
•
•
•
Com Frequency Active-Standby Swap
Nav Frequency Active-Standby Swap
Com presets
Aural alerting
If those optional capabilities were not operational in the aircraft with the GPS 400(W)/GNS
430(W)/GPS 500(W)/GNS 530(W), then this exchange process does NOT permit adding
them now.

Record parameters from the corresponding fields recorded in the Garmin GPS
400(W)/GNS 430(W)/GPS 500(W)/GNS 530(W) in writing in the tables below –
this document becomes the permanent record of the settings. Avidyne
recommends taking digital photos of each page and saving them as a backup
technique.
Not every configuration page is necessary to record. If
the configuration page is not one that exists or needs to
be replicated on the Avidyne IFD, it is not included
here.

3. Grab the unit with both hands and pull it out of the tray as shown.
4. Look into the tray to the back for any bent/damaged pins on connectors. If any
bent pins or bent connectors are present – Stop. The Garmin unit and/or tray
connectors are damaged and will require service by an authorized repair station
or repairman.

6. Dual IFD Chassis ID Setting
Note: This step is not applicable for single IFD installations
For dual IFD4XX/5XX installations, it is imperative that the proper Chassis ID settings are
established for each IFD via the DIP switches located along the right side of the
IFD4XX/IFD5XX outer chassis. Not doing so will result in multiple error messages and
degraded performance when two IFDs are installed in an airplane.
Figure 3: IFD4XX/IFD5XX DIP Switches
Determine which IFD is to be designated as IFD #1 and which is to be designated as IFD #2
(Note, there is no operational difference, this is Databus de-confliction necessity.). Set the
side chassis ID dip switches per the table below:
7.
IFD Position Designation

IFD #1
↑ ↑ ↑ (up, up, up)
IFD #2

With the display facing you, insert unit into tray until stops then wiggle the unit
around a little to ensure it is almost all the way in and is a far as can be placed
without using the hex wrench. The unit should go smoothly into the tray. The unit
should sit as far into the tray - with a gap as shown below.

2.4 Configuring the IFD4XX/IFD5XX
8. Provide power to the aircraft. Battery alone may not be enough.
9. Access the “Config” tab on the IFD4XX/IFD5XX in Maintenance Mode.
Maintenance mode can be accessed by using the following procedures (on the
ground only):
i)
Power on the IFD540/440
ii) Press ENTR Button to accept the on screen statement
iii) Press Proceed Line Select Key (LSK) followed by the Confirm LSK on the
database acknowledgement screen (This is only shown if there are out of
date databases)
iv) Select the “AUX” page button to display the Auxiliary Page. Press on the right
side of the “AUX” page button until the “SYS” tab is shown
v) Press the “Status” LSK, as required, until “Software” is the displayed item.
600-00316-000 Rev 02
Page 22 of 39
IFD4XX & IFD5XX Series NAV/COM/GPS Navigator Exchange Guide
vi) Select “Update Databases” LSK by pressing the associated button. Press
the “Confirm” LSK after it appears. The screen will be blank for several
seconds before coming up in Maintenance Mode
10. When in Maintenance Mode on the IFD, press the right side of the AUX button
until “Config” tab is the active tab.
11. Using the information entered into the tables from the GPS 400(W)/GNS
430(W)/GPS 500(W)/GNS 530(W), enter the same settings into each of the
configuration pages of the IFD4XX/IFD5XX using the filled-in GNS configuration
tables in Section 2.1. Note: if the removed Garmin unit was configured for
GTX330 on the Main RS232 Config page, there will be a different setting
required on the Avidyne IFD. GNS has two options – “GTX330” and “GTX330
without traffic”. The IFD has two options – “GTX330” and “GTX330 with traffic”.
So if your Garmin unit was set to “GTX330” then you need to select “GTX330
with traffic” on the Avidyne IFD.
Release 10.2 adds an ARINC429 Out 2 row – that is
not applicable for this process.
600-00316-000 Rev 02
Page 23 of 39
IFD4XX & IFD5XX Series NAV/COM/GPS Navigator Exchange Guide
Avidyne IFDs have more RS-232 ports than Garmin
units – those extra rows are not applicable for this
process.
The Main System Configuration page on the Avidyne
IFDs have more fields – the fuel type must match that
from the removed Garmin unit. The Airframe, Tail
Number and External TAWS = No fields must be
entered on the Avidyne IFD.
The COM spacing (25 kHz vs 8.33 kHz) entry is made
on the IFD User Options page.
The Main CDI/OBS Configuration page on the IFD has
two extra fields that should be entered as “No” – Ignore
SEL CRS for GPS, and Ignore SEL CRS for VLOC.
The Garmin value “Hide” for the VOR/LOC/GS CDI
page uses “Hidden” in the Avidyne units.
The Avidyne IFD GPS Setup page must also select the
Antenna Type (WAAS or non-WAAS) – that selection
should match the type of Garmin unit removed.
The Avidyne IFDs may have extra pages (e.g. Remote
Transponder, WiFi Config, Bluetooth Setup, etc) that
don’t exist in the Garmin devices – they are not
applicable for this process.

After configuring the IFD4XX/IFD5XX, the following post-installation tasks should be
performed.
3.1 IFD Self-Test Outputs Check
While the notification of legal rights page is displayed during normal power up on the ground,
all remote annunciators lamps are lit up and the system generates a specific set of electrical
outputs for the purpose of self-test and troubleshooting.
Before pressing “ENTR”, verify the selected Primary Navigation Display (HSI, CDI, EFIS…)
indications are displayed per the table below.

3.2 Database Check
12. Determine if the Navigation, Chart, and Obstacle databases are up-to-date
Current databases are required for IFR flight.
i)
Press the left/right side of the AUX page function key until “SYS” tab is active;
ii) Press the “Status” LSK until “Database” is displayed;
iii) Note the database validity dates on the page
13. If the databases need to be updated, reference the IFD Pilot’s Guide for update
procedures.
3.3 GPS Signal Acquisition
14. After installation, position the aircraft outside with clear unobstructed view of the
sky. Avoid performing these checks using a GPS repeater within a building /
hangar.
15. Verify the IFD4XX/IFD5XX acquires and calculates a GPS position by accessing
the GPS Status page (AUX page, SYS tab, press the “Status” LSK until “GPS” is
displayed). If WAAS enabled, ensure the system reaches SBAS status
(approximately 3 minutes). If not WAAS enabled, ensure the system reaches
FDE status (approximately 1.5 minutes).
3.4 VHF COM Checkout (N/A for IFD410, 510)
16. Tune a local frequency (e.g. ATIS, CTAF, etc) and verify voice communication is
received and clear.
17. On an appropriate local frequency (e.g. Ground, CTAF, etc), perform a voice
transmit test and verify your transmitted voice was received loud and clear.

IFD4XX & IFD5XX Series NAV/COM/GPS Navigator Exchange Guide
3.5 VOR/NAV Checkout (N/A for IFD410, 510)
18. Use VOT or local VOR to verify Nav receiver function and listen to Nav ID for
function and objectionable noise. If using a VOT, ensure the system passes per
standard pass/fail criteria.
19. Prior to any IFR flight, conduct the VOR test as defined by CFR 14 Part 91.171.
3.6 IFD540/440 Bezel and Display Lighting
20. Verify the Bezel and Display Lighting for the IFD4XX/IFD5XX is set to an
appropriate level for expected flight conditions. See IFD4XX/IFD5XX Pilots Guide
for details on adjusting lighting if required.

4. Functional Checks and System verification - Flight
Avidyne recommends a nominal VFR flight check be performed in addition to the ground
checks that were just performed to verify “normal” flight operations are all functional. Verify
the avionics, including the autopilot, if coupled to the IFD, are operating similarly to preexchange operations.
