  1. Correct, 1997J. Excluding the battery, alt, and master avionics rockers, I only have two rockers left; boost pump and pitot heat. The annunciator provides info not available anywhere else.
  2. How’s this one? Almost complete, center stack in a year or two.
  3. Kevin brought up two valid points; registration fee and location. Registration fee has been answered, and I might did, and rightfully so. But, how about location? The summit is now held about as far as possible at one end/area of the USA. I know folks travel from all over the US, and even overseas, but would it not have been possible to find a more centrally located location for all mooniacs? We enjoy the Summit very much and plan to attend, but will wait to signup closer to the scheduled date. Thanks for all that you do to make this event happen.
  4. The g3x can now display copilot instruments ..... Couldn’t this have been done before, if you had a 10” and a 7” G3X installed?
  5. How long did it take for you to adjust to all the glass v steam?
  6. I don’t think the panels are exactly the same. The area around the gear switch is different. The gear safety bypass button is to the side of the “wheel”. When I measured it the G5 would go below the gear. The avionics shop thought it was workable, we will have to see.
  7. Only what I have read on Garmin of the G3X, GFC 500, and the G5. From my understanding the 7” G3X will revert to a PDF/MFD if the 10” fails. The problem, or not, that is see is that both the 10” and the 7” share the same ADHRS units, so if that fails both units are out of commission. That is when the G5 comes in, with its independent ADHRS and 4 hour battery. I also have back up for getting on the ground in weather, if 530w, with the KX 155. Next years plan is to change out the 530w and the 155 with a GTN 750 and a GNC 255.
  8. Dropped airplane off at avionics shop yesterday. Three to four weeks for all work to be done. Will make a great Christmas present.
  9. I’m dropping of my M20J next week for an avionics package similar to the ones discussed in this thread. Is there anything particular that needs to be done in terms of keeping everything straight so there is no misunderstanding and everyone is happy in the end?
  10. Has there been any discussion on the impact new avionics on premiums? A couple of G3Xs, a GFC 500 and a GTN 750 provide a huge margin of safety and situational awareness that is amazing.
  11. From what I have read, it is not.
  12. I’ve seen that demonstrated in a couple of videos, cool. Would you say that the quality of the sound is comparable in both units?
  13. Here’s a question for the guys with mostly a Garmin panel. What capability (if any) do I loose if I go with a PMA 450B versus a Garmin GMA 350?
  14. Hey Anthony Naw, everyone, one of a kind, great meeting all.
  15. Only 384 pages for the G3X. Read more than once, still digesting all the options. From what I have read, multiple split options are available, 4 different types of inset windows, even a g meter over the HSI ( why you ask, beats me). Also the HSI can overlay Certain data.
