I’m looking at replacing my old Garmin 510 with my Mini Ipad & Foreflight fed by a UAvionics ECHO and UAT. It’ll clean all the junk off my glare shield too!
The Garmin was feeding position data to my ACK-04 ELT, 9600 baud MNEA 0183 and it was happy.
The ECHO has a baud rate of 115200!
Anyone have any ides how to dummy this light-speed rate down to usable 9600 or 4800?

Download the "uAvionics Echo Installer" app from the IOS App Store; there's also an Android version from the Google Play Store. (Don't download the uAvionics Ping Installer" app by mistake!) It will link your device to the Echo's Wi-Fi system and lead you through the setup process, including setting data rates for transmissions to all your avionics and portables. You should also download the .pdf file for the Echo manual from the uAvionics site.

I'm no expert, and certainly not an IA, but...

If you do find a way to slow the baud rate down to where it is
technically compatible, is the ECHO device "approved" to provide the
position data to the ACK-04 ELT? Is your IA willing to sign off on this
configuration -- meaning he believes this would be acceptable to the
FAA? I've been told by at least one IA that he would NOT sign off on
using the Appareo ESG ADS-B GPS source to feed GPS position to the
ACK-04.

The ELT GPS source has no technical specs associated with it. You can
use any GPS that outputs the appropriate format. IIRC the ACK manual
suggests a Garmin 35 puck. Any GPS that meets the install manual is
okay. The manual is FAA SARSAT approved. Who cares whether it gets SAR
within 10 meters or 30 meters?

The ECHO UAT is easily programmable through the ECHO UAT app for your phone. Unfortunately the ECHO UAT does not have an internal GPS so you're asking the wrong question. I take it you have an ECHO UAT with the GRT Safe-Fly 2020 GPS? If you have a GRT display in your panel wired properly to the Safe-Fly, the GRT can reprogram the Safe-Fly and you will be able to wire your ELT to one of the serial outs and set the format and baud rate to match. If you do not have a GRT display wired and configured properly, you will be unable to reprogram the Safe-Fly as it comes set from the factory.
