i find i have plenty of spare time while flying to input flight info into 430, iPad, 496 ect. 430 drives the APilot. my brain drives the buttons.

With the current trade-in program Avidyne is running through Dec 25 it might be worth taking a quick look and seeing if sooner is better than later financially? http://www.avidyne.com/landing/ifd-t...-corporate.asp

I need to dig into this but pretty sure for IMC navigation on a IFR flight plan it would need to be a TSO129 receiver approved for enroute RNAV such as an Apollo gx65...at a bare minimum. When it comes to approaches it gets in the weeds of what WAAS buys you and what equipment is needed if you donít have WAAS. You technically need to use the certified receiver to legally fly rnav route, it may use non approved sources for situational awareness only. If 2 points donít agree, between my g3x database and my GTN650 database I have to follow the GTN650.

I can't say enough good things about my IFD. I wish I had done it sooner.

Good plan Bugsy. Avidyne makes route planning incredibly easy, with all of the waypoint pre-populated on airways. I can flight plan faster on the IFD than I can even on ForeFlight. Come visit and you can play with mine!

The big thing is for primary IFR nav, it has to be a TSO'd box (129, 196, 145, or 146) and if it's a 129/196 non-WAAS GPS then you have to have "an alternate approved and operational means of navigation suitable for navigating the proposed route of flight."

You can use a VFR GPS as a situational awareness aid, but not as a primary means of navigation and you shouldn't file /G without a TSO'd GPS.

The prohibition you listed for the waypoints is true for approaches and departures but not enroute (at least in the US IAW the AIM and AC 90-100).
