    $600 gets it all

    Not trying to butt in here, but if you don't want it all, I have a SigmaTek AI with vacuum flag that was removed from my standby position to install a G5. It does not have any AP pickups. Worked perfectly when removed. Let me know if you are interested.
  2. Sounds like BS to me as well since I didn't lose ground mode after the update.
  3. Just heard from my shop this is only valid for aircraft with an approved STC by 12/28 so likely not an option for us Mooney guys unless they move quickly on it.

    How much are you asking for the pair?

    GDL-82 Install Time

    You may be correct but my ADS-B solution doesn't sniff the transponder output to derive the code, it gets it from the serial port of the transponder so I don't see it as a blocker.

    GDL-82 Install Time

    The thing is that patent does stop other ADS-B transmitters, just ones that want to reduce install costs by sniffing the xponder code. To me that is exactly the kind of thing a patent should be for as it doesn't block the market, just makes your product more attractive.
  8. Hate to disagree but according to Trek Lawler from Garmin: It is a warranty update for any GTN that is interfaced with a GTX 345 or GDL 88. if not this is purely optional and will have to pay for the labor to have it installed. the dealer will need to provide the serial number of the GTX or GDL to have the 1 hour labor claim paid. let me know if there are any other questions, _________________ Trek A.

    G500 TXi Upgrade

    Don, just curous, you say the G5 and some other stuff. What other stuff are you referring to, the Gad-29, or is there more? I now have a TXi, a G5, and the GAD-29 (don't need the B which saves a couple of hundred $$) and am anxiously waiting for the GFC-500 so I'm curious if I'm missing something. Thanks
  10. The same with mine. My shop has no trouble getting information directly from Garmin and has even included me in email threads with the Garmin support people when there is an issue (this is typically frowned on by dealer support organizations because direct contact can bypass the dealer) I've found the Garmin support people always helpful and willing to help with pre-project planning as well as post-project support.

    Dynon Certified thread

    Just a quick correction, the G is included on the list of those in progress.

    STEC 3100 Digital Autopilot

    While I'm not certain, I've heard from others on mooneyspace that certification on both a 231 and a Bravo have already started and that should cover medium and long bodies of all types.

    STEC 3100 Digital Autopilot

    The dimensions for the GMC-507 mode controller for the GFC-500 can be found in the experimental G5 installation manual in Appendix A.

    M20J airspeed indicator for sale.

    I'm about to have one available in a few weeks after my avionics upgrade is complete. Let me know if you'd like it.

    G500 TXi Upgrade

    The G5 for backup and the GFC-500 with the TXi was just what I was hoping for. Time to change my TXi standby instrument from ESI-500 to G5 for my September install.
