The uAvionix will feed ADSB in to the iFly via WiFi giving you traffic and weather.

Yep. That's one of my criteria for selecting a replacement for the 496 -- wifi or serial, either way it needs to get traffic and weather form the uAvionix.

One draw back to the iFly is only one data out which I used to feed autopilot. Needed WiFi for ADSB in

Curious what titanhank used as autopilot splitter switch and how he’s using it. Tried doing either or with a ping buddy by plugging in one or the other. The autopilot gets heading data from the gps feed. When the autopilot was unplugged from the IFly the heading track was random and not in sink with other heading indicators.

Dale,

What did you figure the cost to be to install a Dynon Skyview 1000 Touch to be? Time and wiring on install with GPS 2020 compliant ADS-B antenna?

Couple of questions about iFly 740B…

I have early SN RV-12 with D-180 and Garmin 296. If I remove 296 and replace with iFly 740B:

• Will iFly 740B interface with D-180
• Will iFly 740B provide GPS to ME 406 ELT?
• Can I run ForeFlight on iFly 740B and not pay for Ifly subscription?
• Will iFly 740B connect WiFi to uAvionix echoUAT for Wx and traffic?
• Does iFly 740B show winds aloft?

• Will iFly 740B interface with D-180 Guess I should read better, thought it said interfere! Interface not sure

• Will iFly 740B provide GPS to ME 406 ELT? Don’t think so.

• Can I run ForeFlight on iFly 740B and not pay for Ifly subscription? No don’t think so

• Will iFly 740B connect WiFi to uAvionix echoUAT for Wx and traffic? Yes

• Does iFly 740B show winds aloft?[/quote] Not sure

Best to call iFly regarding all these points. I’m answering from my personal use and my use doesn’t cover some of the questions you’re asking.
iFly tech is very good and helpful.

Several thousand. I stopped looking when it got to over $6K new, and that was just a non-touch 7" SkyView; the HDX would be about $2K higher. You'd need the SkyView, ADAHRS, and engine monitoring box at minimum. Even if you got a used Skyview at a deep discount, it's still several thousand bucks plus panel butchering and a lot of re-wiring.

We already installed the EchoUAT/SkyFyx for ADS-B (in and out). All I really want is a bigger and better screen than the 486 has, and will work with what we already have for ADS-B traffic and weather.

From a hardware perspective, you only need one serial port for GPS data to your EFIS, and ADS-B IN data from the echoUAT. Both are unidirectional data streams. I don't know if the iFly software running on that device is capable os using a single serial port for both functions, or not -- it's not covered in the manual and I haven't seen anything in the forums about it. It would be interesting to see if that works or not. I may email and ask them about it. I think I'd prefer serial over wifi, as long as I have to crack the panel open anyway.

I have a full IFR panel in the rocket, 430 etc. I use the 430 Garmin for my autopilot and approaches, the iPad for all the up to date information I require and the 496 as a quick and dirty gps. My favourite of the three is my 12 year old 496. It is very bright, easy to use and has been quite reliable.
However it seems that the remote gps antenna has packed it in. Is there anyone out there that has one lying around....
If not suggestions about a replacement are in order. Would a garmin 660 be of similar size and capability as the old 496.


Thanks

Tom Martin

My early model iFly 740 does interface with the D-180 via a USB-Serial converter. I do not know if the new 470B has a serial output or not. I did not try connecting the 740 to the ELT. But I was told that there are enough satellites to pin point your ELT location even if the ELT is not transmitting its Lat-Longitude.

The Garmin 660 is supposed to have the same mounting footprint as the 496
