  1. Garmin just released a series of upgrades (on the 5th of September) for our GTN navigators and other G500/600 TXi displays. I am at my avionics shop now (for something else) and they told me about the update. They have upgraded 10-15 planes already and are installing the newest upgrade in my GTN750 + FS510. Highlights include: GTN Update: Decent VNav. You can now give waypoints in your flight-plan, vertical altitudes to assist with VNav planning. ONce an arrival or approach is loaded and activated, GTN automatically populates step-down altitudes or any applicable altitude restrictions. These are overridable if ATC issues something different. GTN: You now won't lose your final destination airport when loading and activating an approach - in the flight plan. GTN: Forward Looking Terrain Avoidance (FLTA) audible messages: "terrain ahead, pull up", "wire ahead", "five-hundred" GTN: Keyboard enhancements (QWERTY) GTN: Sidetone setttings GTN: user-defined waypoint as an airport, so terrain alerts are minimized. Other related products enhancements: Course Deviation Indication (CDI) and VDI Preview Garmin Pilot can now be used on Apple Devices to view real-time engine information via a FS510 New TXi display Orientations -Bryan
  2. One of my 430 WAAS data cards gave up the ghost this weekend and I need another one. When I last bought a card I remember noting how horribly expensive they were. Before I buy a new one I thought someone who may have upgraded may have one laying around for sale. If so, please message me. Thanks!
  3. For my M20J - 201: I bought a JPI EDM700 to replace a faulty JPI EI from Willmar but unfortunately they(he) went out of business and have been unable to track down the instrument. Also had an annual and new prop that I don't have paperwork for yet...Anyone aware of a loose 700/730? Or perhaps have one to sell? Or how to reach Brian? ;-/ I also have a GNS 430 with a sticky button - would like to buy a WAAS 430 or 530 to replace. Thanks to any responses! See you @ SNF. 605 389-4225 mei.cfii@gmail.com

    Garmin 340

    When I began upgrading the panel in my twin cessna I added a PMA 8000 G audio panel. I chose that model because it had the USB charge outlet- handy for phones and ipads and the auto squelch function. Now after flying with it for 6 months, my wife wanted a PMA 8000 G in the Mooney that she flies. She can't live without the auto squelch and the bluetooth music. So I pulled a perfectly good Garmin 340 audio panel out of the Mooney and replaced it with the PMA 8000. Happy wife, happy life. So the Garmin 340 audio panel is for sale. It works perfectly and is still supported by Garmin. I looked at ebay and the various outlets and see that they are selling for minimum $750-800. I am offering it for $700 if anyone on the Twin Cessna on Mooney forums want it. If not I will post it on ebay. First one gets it. Email me at jeffa@iglou.com Regards, Jeff

  7. Gents, I believe I have a chance to buy a Garmin GTN 750 at an incredible price and it includes the unit 12/28v, connector back plate, rack, and Garmin GA 35 WAAS GPS antenna AND a current 8130. The unit was working perfectly when removed for an upgrade. My 1980 M20K is 100% original with the King silver crown package so I have a lot of changes coming due real soon to get ADS-b compliant. I've been looking at the Lynx 9000 thinking I didn't have a GPS source, but with the GTN 750, solved. I know the install costs are going to be astronomical but I plan on walking into a shop and handing them a pile of compatible parts and say "make it pretty ...and work", all at one time. I already have a JPI 830 in a box waiting, so also want to get a new comm panel, (my plane only has 2 place intercom plugs-need to add 2 rear) and of courses a new ADS-B transponder. (decisions, decisions) I'm pulling the entire interior for a complete upgrade and to upholster all of the interior panels as well. I plan on having all the interior out when I take it to the avionics shop (still need to find a good reasonable one within a couple hours flight time of Sacramento) so its quicker and easier for them to install wiring, antenna, etc. I'm a recreational flyer in my Mooney and wouldn't give a second thought flying back to the Midwest or farther from northern California so dont necessarily need all the latest and greatest digital wiz bangs, but it will be nice to step into modern times with a real GPS Panel unit. (KNS-80 and iPad up to now). Is there anything I should know up front or should be planning for to avoid having to go back 2 steps later on? I've attached a current panel pic to help. Hope it comes through ok. Thanks all ! This site rocks !!! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone ! (Can you tell I'm happy to be back in the US for the holidays from Afghanland !!?)
  8. I want to buy a Garmin GNS 430W with Rack and antenna and a Garmin 106A within the next month or so. I am in the Houston Area and after the TFR is lifted here I can fly to pick it up if you have one.
  9. Recently upgraded my 430W. Will sell my Garmin Aera 796 for first offer over $1275. Comes with GPS and XM Antennas, AC charging mount, aircraft mount, Manuals, and everything I received when I bought it new. The carry case has a worn spot in one corner which has no bearing on the operation of the unit which is fully functional. The XM weather feature requires a subscription to Sirius. Email any questions. No phone calls, please.
  10. Hi everyone, hope this isn't a duplicate of what's going on in the G5 thread. Since I'm not yet an owner, I wanted to leverage the knowledge here to better understand what Garmin's announcement that the G5 will soon support 3P autopilots means for the Mooney fleet. Short version: G5 coupled with GAD 29B adapter expected to support the following autopilots: Honeywell (Bendix King) KAP 100/140/150/200, KFC 150/200/225 S-TEC 20/30/40/50/55/60-1/60-2/65, 60 PSS, 55X Century II/III, IV (AC, DC), 21/31/41, 2000 Cessna 400B, 300 IFCS/400 IFCS Thanks.

    Am I Crazy

    I'm thinking of pulling the stratus esgi set out of my aircraft to replace with a garmin 335/345. My eventual plan is to install 2 garmin G5's and eventually a GTN 6##. As far as I can tell, the only way to do this without putting more holes in my plane is to replace the stratus with a garmin acceptable gps source? I'm guessing this sounds like an incredible waste of money? Ami I crazy? Oh yeah I already own a garmin gdl 39 3d. seeing as how I refuse to buy any apple products so can't use foreflight.

  14. I've decided to get rid of the last piece of Garmin equipment in my airplane. I'm replacing it with the Avidyne audio panel as everything else I have is Avidyne. Works perfectly, I just want an all Avidyne setup. $750 including shipping. [I'll get better photos at the airport tomorrow but this was from about six months ago.]

  16. Hello all, The time has come for my annual database renewal and I'm leaning toward the Garmin OnePak to try it out. I saw a few posts here from last year about people switching to Garmin for the price decrease and it is worthwhile. My questions are more about anything to do with the quality of the data. Has anyone noticed any issues such as approaches not being available, missing airports or anything like that? Or has it generally been a seamless transition?
  17. We recently had a GTX 330ES installed in our Mooney to meet the upcoming ADS-B Out requirement. We also have a GDL39 for ADS-B In info. I expected now that we're ADS-B compliant that I would start receiving more info from the ground stations. That has not happened, and I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions or experience on the topic. To recap, we have GTX 330ES (configured to report Dual in capability) GDL 39 3D Garmin Pilot (running on Samsung Tab S) GNS 480 The top left corner of the map page shows 2 icons related to incoming info on the GDL. Air to Air shows correctly. The antenna icon shows a red X. In the ADSB settings page, it reports "Full TIS-B Traffic" as "No". On "Ownship detected" there is also a "No". Garmin tech support has been somewhat helpful by pointing out that the ES needs to report the UAT In capability to the stations. That is now set correctly (I think), but still no TIS-B or ownship. They have offered no suggestions to confirm that I have Pilot and the GDL set up correctly. They are mostly pointing fingers at the ES, and suggesting I ask a Garmin dealer about the issue. I did have Full TIS-B and ownship detected about a year ago when I was regularly flying a ADS-B compliant 182.
  18. Garmin GTX 327 removed for upgrade to ADS B. $500. Works perfectly, yellow tag from install. $500. Shipping included to US. PM me for more info. Rags.
  19. Apologies in advance, but I searched and can't find the answer. I just installed the 210, along with the Garmin 345 in order to have ADS B (TCAS, weather, etc). The included Flightstream info is REALLY light (read nothing there, really). I have my iPad paired up, but haven't had a chance to see what it and I can do. I have a pair of 340s installed, one WAAS, and understand I can upload the flightplan. I also seem to recall I can DOWNLOAD wx and traffic to the iPad. I also have a previously installed XM receiver, and a third party tablet installed, but the old tablet is VERY touchy. I'd rather upload the XM stuff to the iPAD, which is new and shiny. Lots of questions, I'm sorry again. Any answers or advice? Thanks, Dave
  20. It looks like I'm pulling and trading in most of my Garmin products for Avidyne. Out: Garmin 530W, 430W, 330ES, GDL-88 & GDL-69A In: Avidyne IFD-540, 440 (with WiFi & BT), AXP340 & SkyTrax 100 Keeping: GMA-340, KFC-150, KAS297B, KCS-55A, WX10A, Shading Miniflo & EI GEM (that will be the next upgrade)
  21. I guess I never really thought about it, but when I get VTF on an approach, it is usually heading,turn, etc. but today flying into KISM the controller asked if I was RNAV capable (yes) and said my approach would be the RNAV 6. Then he gave me direct TONTY. I dialed up the approach, but when I went to select TONTY, there was nothing. ForeFlight to the rescue. TONTY is the name of the FAF and once I realized it was, I asked for a heading to it. Not having years of instrument flying under my belt, I had never encountered this and wanted to see if it is fairly normal or not. He never told me TONTY was the FAF - that came from ForeFlight. And my 430W did not have it named. Is it normal to be given direct to the FAF by name, and if so, do the 650/750's have the name associated in the approach? Or is this what charts are for?

  23. New GTN650, which includes the installation tray, factory wire harness, but no antenna. Unfortunately, due to a family issue, I won't be installing this unit at this time. Everything is new in the box. The USA base maps and initial update certificate are included. Message me if interested. I have ~$9000 invested.
  24. I've just had the GTX345 installed in my G1000 equipped Ovation with S-Tec autopilot (29-0363) - one of the first installations in Australia. Firstly the background of ADSB Down Under. For some inexplicable reason, installation was mandated in Australia for IFR not later than the middle of 2017, which means we are the test subjects, and will pay a hefty premium. About 10 years ago when ADSB was in the early implementation stage, the authorities were going to subsidise ADSB, but it's been conveniently forgotten. Since then the cost has skyrocketed, not helped at all by the fact that early adopters of glass panels with S-Tec autopilots have not got any meaningful support from Mooney, and my feeling is Garmin only came out with a G1000 solution when they did to head off the competition. Anyway, having stumped up the money for the GTX-345 installation and expecting a positive result, the G1000 does not recognise the GTX345. The only way to enable it is to go into the configuration menu, tell the G1000 the GTX345 is installed, and then it will display. When powered down, the configuration procedure has to be repeated. I'm still not sure whether it's a software or hardware problem, but Garmin have been slow to resolve it. My concerns are the longer the Ovation sits in the shop, the more cost it will attract, my aircraft is not available until the issue is resolved. The avionics shop asked Garmin to replace the GTX345 but were told no, there was too much of a backlog, so it seems Garmin care less about existing customers and more about new ones.

    Garmin 696 Flightplans

    I know that Jeppesen software will produce flight plans that can be loaded into the Garmin 696. Does anyone know of other software that will do so? I have Foreflight but that doesn't appear to do so.
