I installed it with my MX-20. I've since reworked my panel and replaced it with a 796 in an AirGizmo dock. But I've still got some pictures of the settings. The relevant ones are:
Misc Setup: GDL 90 UAT Radio = Disp Only, GDL 90 Code Edit = Enabled
External Data Sources: UAT Traffic/Data Link Source = Port 4 (for me)
Enable/Disable Function: Traffic = Enabled, FIS Data Link = Enabled
Also make sure you set the Broadcast ICAO Address. I donâ€™t know which screen in setup. Itâ€™s the 8 digit hex-looking Mode-S code that translates to your N-number. For whatever reason I put my N-number in it and fought an error message for a while.
I got traffic and Metars on the MX-20 but only traffic on the 430W. Iâ€™m very disappointed with the display on the 430W. Since Garmin doesnâ€™t play nice with others Navworx can only feed it traffic and you donâ€™t get all the capability of the 430W that it has with say a GDL-88. I love the display on the 796 but unfortunately Navworx doesnâ€™t support it either, again because Garmin doesnâ€™t play nice and they havenâ€™t reverse engineered it. So Iâ€™m feeding it from a GDL-39 works well despite being totally separate.
Good luck. If needed I can send the pics of the setup screens.
