Thanks. I found the relevant part in Appendix I of the revision K manual I had saved for later review.

Default Chocolate or Vanilla

Yes, and in my case I chose Chocolate (Garmin?) over Vanilla (Dynon?)

Both are delicious, for me the nudge to Garmin two years ago was the deal on the GTN 625 (which was similar to the one mentioned by G3xpert above) and the introduction of the G5. The discount was the deciding factor.

Both Dynon and Garmin had everything I wanted at similar total price with small wins over each other on different technical issues.

Garmin didn't have it in the bag however, if they had not allowed Foreflight to function with the G3x they would have been out despite the discount on a GTN 625.

One of Dynon's engineers is a fellow Sonex builder I know and I felt sheepish telling him I was leaning to Garmin since he was so helpful in explaining the ins and outs of the Dynon equipment. I never doubted I would get good service from Dynon.

The G3xperts have been excellent to work with the few times I needed any thing - which hasn't been often. I have also dealt favorably with Garmin on servo issues.

You can't go wrong either way. (Not to slight GRT, but I have little knowledge of their products)

Thank you all for your input. I am preparing for a an upgrade to my 4-5 year old G3X non touch 7" screens to a 10.6" GDU460 PFD, and 8" on the left GTN650, GTX345, GMC307, etc. on my RV-10.

Another option that you might want to consider. I have a duel screen Adavnced Flight Systems 5600, with an Avidyne 540. This combination has the latest in cutting edge tech and still has the full support of Dynon/AFS. This combination does everything but serve me coffee and peanuts when I,m flying. So far, it has been totally reliable. If youíre a gadget guy, this is the way to go.

Nobody ever answered this question. I'd like to know as well. On the RV-14, a good chunk of panel space at the top center is taken by the canopy jettison handle if installed (I'm installing one on my bird).

I'd love mount a remote NAV/COMM behind the panel to save some center stack space. The only remote Garmin offers is the GTR-20 which is COMM only. The only Garmin option for a NAV/COMM seems to be the GNC-255.

Are there any options for a remote NAV/COMM?

I've studied a bunch of panel photos and I think you can get a everything in with the jettison handle - options for remote xponder and audio panel also help make this possible, so probably can get 2nd panel mounted navcomm in place. seems like there should be a way to minimize space taken by the jettison handle also.

No remote nav/comm unit that Iím aware of... Although you can fit 4-5 stack units in a 14 panel under the jettison handle. 2 if you go with a larger 750/540 type cert nav/comm/gps.
