OK, Please tell the solution, as I'm probably getting an uAvionix.

Only if transponder puts out replies, not just set to 1200, will the uAvionix Beacons be able to act anonymous.

The short of it is that Garmin is ready to go to court yesterday. uAvionix is happy with the February 2020 bench trail date. The court agreed to keeping the original schedule. uAvionix does not seem to want to engage with Garmin to explain how their product does not infringe.. seems like a long road ahead. If you have to choose between their two products...I don't know.. They are both sub-$2000, but there's a chance skyBeacon won't be on the market one day. Garmin had their patent before uAvionix.


(Here) is the latest joint status statement from a couple weeks ago (4 pages).
And the original complaint by Garmin here (112 pages)

For those like me who have been studying, following and using "anonymous mode" for 5 years I say your statement is conjecture at best. I have experience with FreeFlight Rangr, Garmin GDL 88, Garmin GDL 82 and Uavionix UAT products under anonymous mode with the randomized ICAO code. I have talked at extent to regulators and avionics manufacturers. UAT anonymous is truly anonymous. Where did you get your information?

To be truly anonymous youíd have to shield your ICAO hexadecimal code. I donít think thatís an option.

When in anonymous mode that is what happens. Your hex code is randomized.

This thread prompted me to look at FAR 91.227 out of curiosity. It looks like when you donít file a flight plan or request ATC services you can Omit your call sign and ICAO code but if you file or request ATC services you have to broadcast your ICAO code. See 91.227(d) (8) and (11).
