PA28R Arrow Audio Panel



  • Following update to version 2, it appears to me that the KMA 20 audio panel/selector no longer works as covered in the manual on page 25. It was working correctly (as I understand it) on the earlier, first version.

    My understanding is that when the 'Auto' button is moved to the up or down position, the the Com 1 and Com 2 audio should operate in accordance with which microphone is selected (i.e. Com 1 transmit or Com 2 transmit). It appears that this is no longer happening.

    I'm still trying to figure out what switch positions on the KMA 20 are needed in order to be able to transmit on Com 2, but it looks like you can't have Com 1 audio selected when wanting to transmit and listen on Com 2 - I believe this is not how is should be.

    Great update with version 2 otherwise, although I'm also getting the wet compass error reported elsewhere - in my case, sometimes the compass is stuck on North and then it will show random, wandering heading for awhile and then stick on North again.

    Most impressed with Just Flight quick actions to get everything right, well done.

    Thanks

    Hi John,

    Thanks for the report. This will be fixed in the next update.

    Thanks,

  • Thank you



  • After update 3.0 the audio panel is still not functioning correctly...

    1. COM 1 audio can be heard any time the Mic switch is set to COM 1, regardless of the Speaker/Phone switch position.
    2. COM 2 audio can only be heard when the Mic switch is set to COM 2, and the Speaker/Phone switch is up or down.
    3. Because the Mic switch is controlling the COM 1 & 2 audio, they cannot both be heard at the same time.
    4. NAV 1 identifier code audio can only be heard when the GNS 530 Ident button is held down (it should toggle instead), and is heard regardless of the position of the Speaker/Phone switch position.
    5. NAV 2 identifier code audio is working correctly. It is only heard when the NAV 2 power switch is set to IDENT, and the Speaker/Phone switch is up or down.
    6. The DME Speaker/Phone switch is working correctly. Identifier code audio is only heard when it is up or down.

    I did not test the ADF or MKR audio because I was still on the ground and out of ADF range.

    What position was the KMA 20 AUTO switch in when this test was carried out?

    The AUTO switch was in the default center position... Also, I have now tested the ADF audio and it is working correctly.


  • JF Staff

    Thanks. We will investigate and address any outstanding issues.



  • I have also now tested the MKR audio and it is working correctly..



  • @RetiredMan93231 I am still having all of those issues you mentioned in v3, is it fixed for you?

    I don't have a fix for these issues... hopefully, they will be fixed in the next release, as stated above by @Martyn.



  • I can confirm this. I'm having the same issue.



  • @RetiredMan93231 Gotcha, I misread your message as it all being fixed, but I see now you just meant the MKR audio works. Though for me, I can hear the MKR audio even if the switch is in the middle, which doesn't seem right.


  • JF Staff

    We've made various changes to the KMA 20 logic which should address these issues in the next update.



  • @Martyn in FS2020 you can assign two different audio channels, for instance, one for aircraft and game overall sounds and a specific one for ATC communication only. In this scenario having the ATC communications audio channel set to headphone and overall game sound to speaker I thought it would be possible to switch that the same way using the Arrow III Speaker/Headphone switches but it's not working as expected, all communication goes to the speaker instead (overall sound).
    Can you verify that?



  • @anderson I have everything going to my headphones, but that would be a really, really cool feature.



  • For me, v0.4.0 has fixed the audio panel issue I raised at the start of this thread.

    Most impressed with the prompt work by the Just Flight team, well done people.
    Thanks

  • Can't receive morse code by Nav1 (Nav2 works).
    Is it a known bug?



  • I have the opposite problem, I can always hear nav1 morse (when ident is pressed) even if the selector on the audio panel is off



  • Where is The audio panel when using the GTN750? The audio panel touch button on the GNS750 does nothing.



  • @sdvpilot 750 is in beta, audio panel doesn't work
