Great stuff!

Love the new GTN6XX keyboard! I was just thinking this morning on my flight review how nice it would be to have a full keyboard!

Double thanks for the ability to add Altitudes to the GTN flight plan!

Triple thanks for making it all work seamlessly with the G3X Touch!

Any plans to make the VDI indication (VNAV) interface for the Aspen EFD 1000 Pro?

Hello wnplt,

Sorry, but that is so far outside our team's responsibilities that we don't have any visibility to that.

I have a 650 but no G3X or G5, so no benefit for me on the VNAV, but all I can say in re: the keyboard is THANK YOU. I absolutely hate the way you have to enter way points at present.

Great upgrades indeed, just today I was crossing multiple fixes at assigned altitudes and was wishing for this feature, plus the new Key Board will be so welcome compared to the 'sliding' key board.

"the GTN 6XX navigators have a new full size QWERTY keyboard available"

I'm sure the term "full size" is a little tongue in cheek. Thank's for the great new though. It's a handy addition. Also glad to see the G3X may not be left out in the rain. I was starting to feel as though I have an orphaned system already.
