I found what appears to be a 2003 manual that does not mention the R version.

http://rv7-a.com/manuals/SL40Comm_InstallationManual.pdf

Per this manual, you should be using the following RS232 settings:
9600, 8, 1, None

Working on an installation/configuration issue related to my SL-70.

The latest Installation Manual I have is dated October 1999 and does not reference how to enable the EXTended mode or that it is available.  It is available in the software in my SL-70 and I have been provided instructions to successfully enable the EXTended mode - but I would like to know if there are any other differences outlined in a later manual.   Software currently in the SL-70 is MICR 015 and FPGA 1.1 from the set-up screen and offers the EXTended mode option in the configuration.  Does anyone out there have a later version of the SL-70 Installation Manual?

I want to make sure it is working properly while helping my ADSB equipment vendor!  The SL-70 Installation Manual references the Altitude message only.  I have the SL-70R manual dated September 2003 and there are enough
differences that I am confident it does NOT fully apply to the SL-70!  The SL-70R Installation Manual references the EXTended mode and "Mode" messages that are transmitted when the EXTended mode is enabled...hopefully, this info is also present in a later version of the SL-70 Installation Manual.

Does anyone out there know how to 'capture' the RS-232 data as it is transmitted from the SL-70 in a readable format?  I have a serial port on my computer connected to the TX pin from the SL-70 and set to 1200, 8, 1, N in HYPERTERM (old Windows software).  It does capture the 'bursts' of data but the results are unintelligible on the software screen.  The SL-70 Install Manual gives me a good idea about what I 'should' be seeing.    Maybe I need special settings or special software!

Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Ralph Capen

Oooops!!!! 

I would still expect you want to use 9600 for baud, since most Garmin equipment uses that speed.

Thanks - that is a manual for the SL-40 comm radio - not the SL-70 Transponder...I grabbed it anyway though!

Ralph,
Here is the install info from 2003. 
Got SL70R sitting in a box if needed.
