    Hello Pete, forst of all - thank you for your quick answer after holiday! Actually, I expected FSUIPC working as that what you answered me. But we (me and my colleague from my university) think, that maybe FSUIPC is not working properly - maybe I didn't install it properly. He will contact you (Andres Arrango) because I am not at the university this week to check wether the cable/com port is working nor if I installed. We have there a small simulator enviroment based on Prepar3D and would like to use our Jeppesen EFB with the GPS Position from Prepar3D. Best Regards Ferdinand

    Hello, I would like to use my Bad Elf GPS device to provide GPS Position Data to my IOS Jeppesen Flight Deck. The Problem is, that my Cygnus Tool is unfortunately not working with P3V4. Therefore I hope I can use the GPS Out functionality of FSUIPC. I have a cable from Redbird/Cygnus which has an integrated USB-to-Serial chipset from FTDI that show up as COM port. Furthermore, I have allready contact to Bad Elf support and received the following message: Please configure the speed to be 115200. Set the interval to be 1000 msec. Only check the RMC and GGA checkboxes, the Bad Elf GPS won't use the others. If we're lucky that should get the information flowing. You should see speed/course/altitude on the first LCD screen one the firmware detects a good NMEA stream. Then you can verify the latitude/longitude are correct as well. If that doesn't work, then ideally we need to see some sample data being sent by FSUIPC so we can plug that into our test harness. Maybe the logging functionality would include that? But the Bad Elf is not receiving any GPS Data via FSUIPC - do you have any advice? Furhermore, can I provide some logging data to them? Best Regards Ferdinand
