Default Garmin Announce?

Anyone heard what new products Garmin has coming out on the 17th? I just finished wiring my G3X Touch panel, hope it is not suddenly old tech.

Aircraft avionics are developing fast enough that everything is obsolete as soon as you're holding it in your hands. "Old" technology or not, your G3X Touch is many orders of magnitude more advanced than steam gauges, and will last you well into the future. If you wait for the technology to stop advancing, you'll never buy anything.

The G3X Touch was replaced with the new G4X Neuro, a new Flight System that works on brain waves. You just think what you want the plane to do and it does it.

Note: You must think in Russian.

I didn't see the "hype" of a pending Garmin announcement, but guess it was something that was distributed at NBAA?

https://www.garmin.com/en-US/blog/av...baa-next-week/

I'm not seeing anything that impacts the Experimental market (but NBAA wouldn't be the venue for Experimental stuff now would it?)
