Viking 130 to Garmin G3X Touch via CAN bus

I have Viking View but also installing a G3x Touch in my Zenith 750 Cruzer. I’m also installing a panel-mount iPad 9.7” beside the G3x leaving little space to mount the Viking View within my direct line of sight as I’d like to. Knowing the G3X can easily display engine gauges from CAN bus interface such as from a UL Power FADEC without any additional hardware; Is it possible to interface the Viking ECU to the G3x via the can bus? I see the DB-9 connector in the 130 wire loom and have read hints that it’s a CAN bus interface but is this in a format that the G3x will understand?

Thanks in advance,

Phil Cook

  • We do have an interface box (Data Logger) that will read this and also record every flight on an SD card.

    It is less useful to push this info to any EFIS since most of the info is not useful for the pilot.

    Things like cam position and ignition timing is not of much use during flight.

    Missing items would be gearbox temp, fuel pressure, oil pressure, etc that needs additional sensor anyhow.

    This is what the Viking View is all about. A simple instrument displaying only what the pilot needs.

    With the Data Logger you can also use a laptop to read anything you want about the engine. Essential or not.
    • Got it - the CAN bus from the ECU only exposes the core engine data, not the things we're really interested in (gearbox temp, fuel pressure, oil pressure, etc).

"Bob, on my CH-750 I have it set at 19 degrees which gives me about 5200 on takeoff and climb. I previously had it at 18 and as I recall it was around 5400."

The Viking 110 in my RV-12 "Tweety Bird". Put 400 hours on her in two years! Long cross-country trips greater than 1000 miles (each) totaled 14000 miles!. Sweet!
