[TG11] A57D - shows "no pilot"

I wired the network this way and A57D do not see my autopilot.
What is incorrect and is there anything to check on settings maybe?

Hello Dmitry,

The A50/57/70 didn't have as complete autopilot integration (control) of some of the larger or newer displays, but you should still be able to send navigation data to the pilot. Your connection diagram is fine, it's very good.

To check whether the A57 really is able to communicate with the autopilot, you can do one of two things:
  1. Look in Menu > System Diagnostics > External Interfaces > SeatalkNG > Devices and see whether the SPX pilot is listed
  2. Do a Goto Waypoint on the A57 and then press Track on the pilot and see whether the pilot can steer to the waypoint

If either of these work then your connection is good.
