GRT says $1800.00 per screen for upgrade to HX.. I have two 6.5 screens.
Iíve gone back and forth on spending the money..
In reality, this is a hobby we fund with disposable income. I canít think of one good reason to justify this expense, except... It gives me immense joy!!!

When your dead.. your gonna be dead for ALONG TIME.. Depending on your religious view.. And with that thought..
The **** with it! I worked hard all my life. NEW SCREENS IT IS!!
It just makes me happy!

Woohoo - good for you! You're gonna like the new glass. I didn't fly behind our WS or HS, but as soon as I powered on the HX my eyes nearly popped out of my head.

Now we'll be standing by for a PIREP!

Good for you, I've already prepared my kids that if all goes as planned I'll be broke when I die

I’ll have to call again, I was told $2300 back in the summer. maybe they lowered the price? Or maybe they are like the FAA, keep asking until you get an answer you like...

**Edit** I just looked on the GRT website, you are right, $1800 ea.
Recalculating......

Got a call from Jon at GRT.. My upgraded HS to HX screens are on the way home!!
Fast turnaround! My screens arrived on Wednesday and shipped out Friday!!
And... And... The best part of all! They only charged me $1400.00 each and $27.39 for shipping with insurance.
Grand total of $2827.39.. Now Iím super happy I upgraded both screens!!
Maybe that was the discount. Anyway I didnít ask..

Looking forward to putting them back in.
