Due to popular demand, Avidyne announced they are extending the popular GNS Trade-In program through March 30, 2018. Customers with a GNS530W can get as much as $8,500 in trade value with the purchase of an IFD550!

Top 5 Reasons to Upgrade to the IFD:
1. Enjoy a modern GPS/Nav/Comm. Tower will have never heard you so clear!
2. Increase aircraft value and minimize your out of warranty avionics risk!
3. Appreciate a modern touch screen with vivid colors that's fully warrantied!
4. Fly home faster to your beautiful significant other (CFO) with geo-filled victor airway flight planning!
5. Maximize your iPad in the cockpit with two-way flight plan transfer via Wifi!

Trade-in terms
Garmin 430, 430W, 530, and 530W must be 14/28V and in good cosmetic condition. If your unit is 28V only, add $400, and if your unit has any delamination add $400. Unit must pass initial bench inspection to receive full trade-in credit. Free gift only available to trade-in customers and is not available towards outright purchases.

The industry's most popular IFD trade-up program of 2016 is back and better than ever. With Avionics Source, you can trade-in and trade-up to the Avidyne IFD550, IFD540, and IFD440 with our simple 1-2-3 program. Starting today, upgrading customers will receive up to a $600 cash bonus towards their purchase against our always low pricing. That's savings you can see.

So im interested in the upgrade from a 530W to a 540 but im afraid of the unknown possible repair cost. my screen in perfect but I have a few buttons that you need to press a few times to get them to respond...but they always respond.

I’m so busy trying to sell you on the big color monitor/PFD...   :)

Now you have asked about Nav radios three times!

There is a delete option for the unintentional DPs and TPs....


Public service announcement only... not really selling anything...

Best regards,

It's live and well! Looks like Ken beat me to it. Those are both active and current best prices. If you have a non waas 430, I'd consider ejecting NOW before Garmin cuts the WAAS upgrade potential. 

What's your IFD440 price without the trade in?  Thanks.
