    Such sophomoric responses do not deserve another.

    The NEW new panel

    Was it a double yolk or a single jumbo one? Heavy yolks make the best omelettes!

    Good to know thinwing. Thank you for your valuable opinion and input. I had no idea they were privately funded. That explains a lot. Their funds are limited and we don’t know their financial health. They’re here today and may be gone tomorrow. Unfortunately that uncertainty makes it a no go for me.

    As I said I’m researching. But to say negative hearsay with no foundation is being disingenuous. There are issues reported on both Garmin and Avidyne. It just seems there are disproportionally more on Avidyne.

    Well they seem to have a lot more issues and glitches than Garmin. I’m not a fan of Garmin necessarily but there are some dark clouds over Avidyne for sure. Not too long ago there was someome on here who was grounded due to an Avidyne issue with his G500. I don’t know the reasons why but it makes me think long and hard about my panel upgrade. Whatever happened with your issue @thinwing? Are you still grounded?

    No. The two are intimately connected. I’m not prepared nor willing to let Garmin or Avidyne in this case off the hook. Not for the kind of money we spend on these vendors. We are their consumers and we need to advocate for us. Not doing so is treasonous. I’m in the process of researching and planning a panel upgrade. Reading this kind of stuff is disappointing.

    I agree with you. However the customer’s feeling is his/her “reality” and the difference is huge. If I go to a restaurant and I don’t like it I simply don’t go back. But if I just paid 20 grand and I feel stuck and ignored it’s a “reality” that hits like a ton of bricks.

    It may be a little different when a customer pays $19.99 for a sandwich he didn’t like vs. one paying $19900.00 for avionics that don’t work. And getting ignored on top of it!

    No we are not. But we don't need to be. And I will not click the ignore me button as you suggested. I don't believe we should ignore or shun those we disagree with.

    I understood your post. You said "If we bash them endlessly, they tend not to visit again..." Someone had an issue with Avidyne. Someone else had an issue with Garmin. It's a discussion but according to you it's bashing. The only one being negative is you. I have a suggestion. How about we all, that includes you, try and advocate for us instead of the manufacturers. We pay them enough money don't you think?

    So I’m clear. We can’t discuss any issues with a certain manufacturer ‘s box because it’s not pc and considered bashing? We can only talk about good things not problems? Is this MS according to Anthony? Is this the world according to Anthony? I’d be ok with that but you see Anthony, my momma told me do not be anybody’s fool. What kind of discussion would it be if we have to tippy-toe around problems and issues for fear a rep will be offended? Would that not be doing our community a disservice? I think you’re wrong. Manufacturers actually do want to hear from us. If some rep along the way gets offended that’s their problem and a discussion they need to have with their management. I’m clear now. Are you?

    These are minor configuration “non” issues. I seem to recall Avidyne has some major issues with the G500. These can be a headaches that Garmin owners don’t seem to have. Does Avidyne have anything in the display dept as in pfd/mfd that would be compatible with their navigators? As Garmin does?

    I have not seen any such issues with the GTN. I'd love to read about them. Are there any threads you can reference? I agree most people do what they want in the end. I'd like to know what the benefits are of each. Avidyne and Garmin. Is there any advantage of one over the other? Seems to me Avidyne only offers a GPS box whereas Garmin has offerings for the entire panel with products that are fully compatible. Is that not a huge advantage?
