I just lost my LCD Display backlight in my Giles 202 after a nice electrical burn smell. It looks like I have burned the DPU....Vision Microsystem Inc was purchased by JPI and they discontinued a great product. There is still support but at an elevated price.

I have found a EAA member/pilot/tech in Rhode Island through EBAY from all places who has a stock of parts replacements for VMI products and even a test bench to check the entire system. He is priced reasonable and will be sending my unit for repairs after having receieved a nice trouble shooting procedure from him....Stay put for final results/reports ...

If anyone is in need to have your VMI Monitor, DPU or individual VMI gauges repaired,,,you may want to consider giving this guy a call. He is super nice and a fellow flyer! Reggie Smith (401)741-0863

On a different note.....since I have no space between my pannel and the front backrest seat, I am obligated to have something slim an/or similar to the VM1000.....anyone knows of a system that it is not going to break the piggy bank and works as good as the VM1000?

I wish JPI would come out with a bolt on VM1000 replacement product or the VM1000 units itself again!!!!! ...I know of a few of you that will jump into it right away if available.....

Am experiencing the same problem myself. Electrical burn smell and display no longer functions. Did repair of your DPU solve the problem?

Thanks, Mark
