The RM-855 Radio Management Unit (RMU) is mounted in the cockpit panel and is the primary interface used to control the radio system functions. The RMU software will need to be upgraded to either the -97X or -98X versions in order to provide the control, testing, and additional failure indications of the ADS-B Out functionality (ADS-B FAIL and ADS-B DGR). The RMU software upgrade will allow for additional communication to the RCZ cluster module on the radio system bus and display of the additional RCZ configuration straps in the maintenance pages.
