Dynon FlightDEK D-180. I'm happy with it but of course would prefer a Skyview so I wouldn't need to use the iPad. In fact if anyone needs a complete panel with everything wired and working I'm considering selling the entire dash panel with everything installed then making an entirely new IFR panel.

Had dual GRT first gen in the RV 10, upgraded to dual 8.4HX. Plane sold.

New plane will have dual GRTs also-----tried for the same 8.4 HX, but could not find a pair of them, so going to the new 10.1 units.

Biggest reason-------familiarity with the units installation and operation.

Also, I really like the fact they play nicely with other brands of accessory boxes.

So as a caveat I vote "satisfied" but I have a legacy non-touch G3X and plan to update to the G3X Touch in the near future. Mainly I want the larger screen and bells and whistles that the newer system offers, but there's nothing actually wrong with the system I currently have so I'm in no rush to upgrade.

I do not see a selection for old fashion 6-pack upgraded with 2 Garmin G5s, magnetometer, and OAT. (or some other manufacturers electronic screen replacement for mechanical gyros)

Similar thoughts here... Flying both a GRT-equipped aircraft and a legacy Dynon-equipped aircraft. Quite satisfied with both of them. Would install either of them again but likely leaning more toward GRT as their "bang for the buck" factor and their willingness to work with other vendors pushes me more in their direction.

GRT would be my first choice when it comes to architecture, functionality, durability and openness to co-exist with other vendors. My only hesitation is if they can withstand the stiff competition posed by the players with big pocket.

Methinks the poll questions will just result in a market share snapshot.
