Default Garmin GDL 82 available?

Any updated words from Garmin about the availability date of the GDL 82? For months the Garmin site has posted Quarter 4 of 2017. Any updated information would be appreciated!

Been flying with Scout and the GDL 39 3D for months, and depending on nearby ADSB-Out aircraft to get my FFlight traffic updates.

Definitely more Situational Awareness and success seeing nearby VFR aircraft aided by ADSB-In data on the iPad and the G 660. I'm usually aware and scanning for the nearby plane(s) before ATC/Flight Following calls with the advisories.

Thx,

Carl

Thanks for the info...

Without FCC approval (according to the Garmin website today) I wonder if they would ship to dealers and keep the units under embargo, waiting for the FCC approval.

Fed civil servants often use up leave in December, IMHO I wouldn't expect any decisions between now and Jan 2., especially if FCC engineers are still running cert. tests or writing reports that need reviews and signatures.

Speculation!

Default Garmin website information changed

Fri., 12/15/17 - Garmin Website changed overnight:

The statement that Garmin was waiting for FCC approval for the GDL 82 and units cannot be sold is GONE today. That statement was removed in the last 24 hours. I've been checking daily and the "can't sell" statement was there yesterday.

I hope that is a positive sign of progress.

Carl
