    Can't answer the Garmin question.

    From the EarthX web you can access the fault codes. Go to Documents/Manuals.

    It seems the possible flash rates are 5 sec on 5 sec off, and 2 sec on 2 sec off. The ignition alerts respond far faster than that so probably not an issue. Should be easy to test by manually grounding the alert discrete to match the flash rates.

    Thanks,

    That'd be great. We've just installed our third Odyssey battery, and will look forward to something better next.

    Can you do anything to fix the issues of battery draw while the aircraft is off? I pulled the fuse on the inconvenient "convenience" light in the rear that constantly takes power, but there still seems to be something beating up the battery. When the mains are off, shouldn't there be no draw?

    The GPS antenna for an ABS-B system has a keep-alive hot wire going to it. Minimal draw but it is continuous.
