Default GDL 88

Has anyone installed a GDL 88 with the G-900X flight deck? I'm looking to do this in the coming months. I'll also install the Flightstream 210 at the same time.

I just installed mine. I have a harness for the FS210 but haven't bought it yet. I've powered up my avionics but haven't flown them yet. What is your question? FWIW I installed mine in tailcone to offset some weight.

I have done it. The G900X manual describes how to wire it. You need v18 or newer software I believe. Configuring it isnít hard, but updating the software is a royal pain in the neck.

Thanks Jessie and Joe. Looks like I have it worked out and will do the upgrade in August. I currently have software 715.15 and I know I will need 715.18 but I'm gong to try to upgrade to .19. All the big shops want to charge several (at least 8) AMU's to do the upgrade.
