IFR of course.
BillL,
I did the 6.5 update as soon as it was introduced.
Love the new qwerty and have had no issues. IFR

I do understand the difference. i mis-typed, I set up the descent (enroute) Vnav using the G375 on the flight plan page and let the autopilot track it.

So your using the VNAV that is internal to the G3X. That has always worked. The new VNAV feature added to the GTN recently won’t currently work with the G3X non touch yet. Garmin has yet to add support for that to the non touch.

Default g3expert?

Still nothing from the Garmin guys? I hope they're just busy with the new stuff (which is really nice by-the-way)...

Default Hoping for a few upgrades

Sure would be nice to get the new weather stuff and fuel prices shown on the map. Before SnF would be icing on the cake :-)

I'm pretty sure they are working on it and it will be out very soon, do you really want them to push it out before they've thoroughly tested it?

Default updates???

G3Xpert, can your loyal, trusting, early adopter Garmin customers expect an update anytime soon?
Garmin has typically been pretty good about not orphaning their previous products. Though, with my luck, we'll be the exception! I too am waiting for an update.

Please forgive this "soap box moment": Wish they would have named the touch system something else. Seems that when most folks (Garmin employees too) refer to the G3X touch system, they simply state "G3X". Even when you call in for assistance they have rouble understanding that you are discussing the "legacy" units! Sigh. Google G3X and it's the same thing.

Walt - I'd be happy enough with a simple "we're working on it" but there's been no response whatsoever so far

They may have missed it. I would drop them a quick PM with a link to the thread. I can't imagine they are purposely dodging the question.
