Default Navworx ADs600 worth anything?

A friend of mine gave me his NIB 600 EXP, Transmon cable and antenna to try to sell. I have not been following the Navworx debacle and have no idea weather this can still be used with an approved GPS source, or whether it is just a pile of junk. Can anyone shed some light on this?

If you find a buyer , let me know , maybe he needs two of them.

The certified B models have the option of using an external position source. ( still of value) . The EXP model has been OKd for using as an ADSB IN only by defeating the transmit. Otherwise makes a good boat anchor.

As for the antenna and cable guess it might have some value. I believe the Freeflight uses the same antenna.

Too light for a boat anchor. Maybe target practice?

Default Bench testing

I could use one for bench testing FlightBox systems. PM me if you have one taking up space / collecting dust.

I thought the issue with the exp boxes was and approved GPS source, and I also thought that an AMOC had be approved to allow the 430/530/650 boxes for the source.

Except the EXP unit has no way of getting an external approved 4XX, 5XX and etc GPS signal into that model. With the other NW units ( Pn XXXXX /?? , certified , B model ) they evidently have a input for external GPS source and therefore allow that " approved GPS position source" signal for continued service.

There are actually five AMOCs now. The two most recent cover Avidyne as a GPS source and the other is for the EXP. However, the EXP AMOC requires disabling the internal GPS and using it as a ADSB receiver (no out). While not ideal, it does provide a transition period to leave the unit installed.
