    GAMIjectors worth it?

    Not to mention that it will show whether your engine is harboring some deep dark desire to do you in. It was the first upgrade I did in my Mooney 27 years ago. An Insight GEM 602. It was also what told me what was going on a year later when my engine started sounding like a Harley while I was IMC over some rough terrain. Help me understand that what I was experiencing wasn’t a catastrophic engine failure but one that told me I needed to get on the ground. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    I have one. You will need to run one or two wires to it if you want the sync feature. The other wire is used to connect to the strobe switch and you would reuse the original Nav wire to turn on the solid white. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Inquiring minds want to know. Did Peter Garmin buy it?

    Taking the plunge

    Does the app that you use have a breadcrumb capability? Here is a flight done completely by autopilot. ADS-B near me seems fine until I make circles, then you can tell the data points are reported on FlightAware with not as much resolution that I think ADS-B claims the surveillance rate is.

  6. That’s what we did with my 900 and EI FP-5L. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Thanks. I will spend some time to watch the Aspen integration video when I get a minute. I would hope it is more than just heading bug and GPSS. Those are basic features that Aspen does with any autopilot it integrates with. What I was hoping for was altitude pre-select within the Aspen (using their altitude select feature).

    Hi Ruthie. You helped me on a few items. Thank you! I would be interested in a 2 bag upgrade. How much help? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    I don’t have the sync wires connected but see no fluctuations on mine. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  10. I wasn’t able to open the PDF. Are they including IAS climbs and descents with this release. When I spoke to them at Sun N Fun they said it was 2 years out for that functionality. For me, the 2 “needs to have” are IAS climbs/descents and altitude pre-select. The “wants” are upset recovery and integration with my Aspen. Any status on these? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    IFR Setup

    Take it from someone who has been down the avionics path a few times. It sounds like you made the most important decision — you plan on keeping the plane. That should change your mental dynamic about what you are going to put into it. Everything I have put into my “forever” plane has been new with the exception of the WX-500. I made the decision to buy the WX-500 used since Aerodon sold me a late model WX-500 with a new antenna and a fresh 8130 on it from L-3. It is also the current production model. Everything else in the way of avionics, including the nuts, bolts and wires are new. Why? Because used and new avionics are expensive. And if you are going to spend some significant installation cost on putting something in your panel, why would you put a 20+ year product in your panel? It opens up potential increased repair issues, support questions and compatibility with newer stuff you install. If it is a budget issue, I would hold off until I could afford a newer product.

    Tom - two of my uncles worked at Piper at Lock Haven and followed the operation to Vero Beach after the flood of ‘72 demolished the facility. Unfortunately both are no longer alive. Be nice to know if this guy is still around and if he knew my uncles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
