____________________________________________

—  iOS 11.1 Update  —

Compatibility testing between the GDC64 and iOS 11.1 is complete with no known issues. There are known GPS position issues with iOS 11.0. thru 11.0.3. If your iPad is running 11.0 thru 11.0.3 download 11.1 to avoid any issues. Future iOS releases will be tested for compatibility and notices will be posted on this site.

iOS 9 Issues

A Service Information Letter (SIL) has been issued for the GDC64 regarding Apple® iOS 9.x which has known issues with providing position to older apps.  iPads operating on iOS 9.x will require GDC64 software version 0070 or later.  GDC64 software 006A and earlier run only on iOS 8.4 and earlier.

 

iOS 9.3.5 has been tested and approved for operation with GDC64 software 0070 & later and Apple iPads® with Lightning connectors, with the following exception:

 

With iOS 9.x, Apple implemented a requirement that Track be supplied in the NMEA sentence. In order for the GPS to compute a track the aircraft must be moving. Thus when stopped or not moving at a certain rate, as defined by the GPS, no Track can be computed. In this condition the position icon will not be displayed on the maps. DAC has released a software upgrade (007A) to address this issue by supplying Heading when Track is missing or invalid while the aircraft is stationary. This is a firmware upgrade which will require return of the GDC64 for implementation.

 

 


 

 

Apple® now requires that iPad hardware support iAP2 protocol for proper operation with iOS 9.x:

  • Apple iPads® with 30-pin connectors, which do not support iAP2, require iOS 8.4 or earlier and GDC64 software version 006A or earlier.  30-pin iPads running iOS 9.x will not operate with GDC64 software version 0070 or later.
  • Apple iPads® with Lightning connectors and iOS 9.x or later, require GDC64 software version 0070 or later.

Contact DAC Sales for GDC64 software upgrade requirements and information.

Description of operation

The GDC64 Tablet Aircraft Interface Unit (TAIU) provides power to recharge an Apple iPad® and also provides navigation information to the iPad® for charts.  The GDC64 is hard-wired to the aircraft without the reliance on wireless connectivity.  The GDC64 safely connects Apple iPad® to aircraft sensors to supply data to iPad® applications.

 

The GDC64 accepts serial information and ARINC 429 data with four ARINC 429 ports and 8 discrete inputs and converts it to USB data to interface to an Apple iPad®.  The GDC64 is powered by an aircraft power bus.  Through the GDC64 aircraft power keeps iPad® fully charged per approved Apple charging policy.
