SL-30 Screen

The screen on my 14 yr old Apollo(Garmin) SL-30 has clouded up a bit. The clouding appears to be in a screen "cover". Might someone have a solution other than send it in to Garmin($$)??

I have a NavWorx ADS600-B connected to an iFly 720 and it works great! The ADS600-B is a transceiver so I have traffic (and weather) whenever I am in range of an ADSB tower.

Transport to Hotels

Will there be local transportation available to get to/from the hotels? I'd prefer to not have to rent a car for such little use.

ZAON XRX Location

Has anyone installed an XRX "between the seats" in a 6-7-9? If so I'd like to know how it performed - and a picture would be great.

Thanks
