I also have the Aithre wired into my Skyview. Works great and was. Simple to install. Interesting to see readings change during taxi and flight.

Thumbs up

If you're interested in the Sensorcon CO monitor, you can get 20% off at their website. There is an article reviewing the detector in Flyer magazine (UK Feb 2022) that explains a lot. I have no connection to the company, just found a little known good deal ... use code Aircraft2021

And for what it's worth, the website states: "... designed and assembled in our Western New York Facility"

Default another +1 for Aithre

I installed this in 2019.

https://vansairforce.net/community/s...d.php?t=174913

A true set and forget system with a 10+ life span.

Checkout the video in post #6 of the above link to realise how useless the DOT cards are.

These or like integrated systems for CO detection should be standard install on all light aircraft.

For the GD-40. It does a self test at each start up.

I wouldn't worry too much about it - from what I understand the NTSB has made a lot of recommendations that the FAA has ignored.

If you go west, VFR, from the eastern parts of the country, after a while you'll see the mountains in the distance. That is a helpful CO detector.

Ah, so it's not the altitude that gets me when I go skiing. Good to know.

Default G3X

For those that use a CO2 detector with the G3X system. The CO2 detector shows being connected to the GDU460 via an RS-232 bus. The G3X diagram shows the audio will then be ported from the GDU-460 to the GMA245 via wiring. The Garmin manual also states the CO2 message traffic will be shared from the GDU460 via the CAN bus.

The question is, will the audio alert still transfer from the GDU460 to the GMA245 if the CO2 detector is linked into a 2nd GDU460 on the CAN bus that is not directly ported into the GMA 245 (PFD vs MFD sort a speak).

Whew, that was a mouthfull of numbers. I'll call the G3 experts monday, but thought it worth asking. Sorry for the scope creep, trying to update a drawing diagram and curious if this path works.

I have a separate audio from the gd-40 to the gma245.
I am still trying to figure out to display the co value on the gdu, but it is not a priority for me, so i havent bother to think too hard about this.

But i get the audio alerts and have the separate idiot light and reset switch above the gdu
