That's somewhat true perhaps about not being able to display traffic on 2 destinations at once, but i'm not sure that it's a universal issue. For one, you could definitely output traffic via ARINC and via Serial and it worked ok. But also, since the traffic output to the EFIS is a one-way connection, as long as the baud rates are the same, you can easily splice in and connect your wifi adapter at the same baud rate as your EFIS.

I had one that I took the wifi adapter and downshifted it to 38,400 and fed it from the same RS232 that my EFIS used. On my other system, I left the adapter at 115,200 and fed my EFIS via ARINC. So depending on what your needs are, this whole push for 5.0 software is perhaps a non-issue. And you're right, with the right GPS source, these would work fine, be legal, and be dirt cheap to install.

If you have a navworx wifly device and you want to "hack" it to reprogram the SSID, or set the baud rate, I can provide a little info on that. I was able to figure it out in about 15 minutes one night, and I ran them for years with the SSID as my N-Numbers at whatever baud rate I connected to via wiring.

So while I agree that with the company gone, it wouldn't necessarily be the common choice, there are those that just want low-cost, and I won't trash these because as we get closer to 2020, there may be more and more interest from people who just don't want to pay the higher cost to be compliant. As long as you already own a decent GPS, at least you could be legal.

The wiring info is all readily available too. I have all of that and can provide it. I had mine tied to the transponder for squawk, encoder for baro, and have basically wired it up in almost every way they could be wired, over the years, since I'd been running them since 2009.

Default ADSB+ GPS Source

Tim, Bob & Jesse,

Do you have a list of compatible ADSB+ GPS sources for NavWorx ADS600B? Specifically, are the following GPS sources compatible:

Trig TN-72

GRT Safe-Fly GPS:
https://www.aircraftspruce.com/pages...s-11-16027.php

uAvionix SkyFYX
https://www.aircraftspruce.com/pages...x11-15206.php#

uAvionix SkyFYX-EXT GPS All-In-One
https://www.aircraftspruce.com/pages...x11-15206.php#

Thanks,

Robin

I believe there is a global AMOC for the GNS430W, 530W, 480, GTN650 and 750. Iím not sure, but I think there is also one for the Avidyne IFD440/540/550.

Jesse,

There are a couple more AMOCs that should all be on the AOPA site. Mostly with the EXP box.

Robin,

The FAA maintains a list of validated ADSB hardware combinations. If you find a GPS that has been approved in any of these, the AMOC process is pretty simple to get that GPS approved with the Navworx ADS600B. If your GPS isn't on that list, the process is very onerous and not one most of us mere mortals will be successful following.

Tim,

The bug is with using Display 1 and Display 2 simultaneously. As with many other bugs, not everyone experiences them (but many do). Having the optional arinc output does increase your flexibility. Bill had given me a fix to test, but it wasn't successful. He soon after shutter the company and I never got both display ports to work at the same time.

Tim it appears Maniago purchased your unit. If that’s correct, I’ll put mine up for sale at the same price.

Hey Bob, you can advertise yours if you want. No worry. I have 3 total (1 sold), so I'll repost this one with the pics from the 2nd one, but I don't mind if you have one running at the same time.
