Andrew,

Will the aspen altitude bug work with the Vision 385 for certified? Also can Aspen forward ILS indications to the TT?

Thanks...

1. Send the current version of the TT controller head in for either a software upgrade/overhaul or trade in your current control head and upgrade to the Vizion model....$700 for the overhaul or $1000 for a trade in to for the Vizion....(that's what I was quoted for the trade in).

2. Installed the Garmin GAD-29. ($500) (+$? for wiring harness).

So basically for somewhere between $1,200-1,500 I can have G-5 control over my TT autopilot. Does that sound about right.
Looks about right to me!

Not currently. We are working with Aspen on future interface plans right now. The Aspen currently outputs the heading bug, lateral GPSS pass through, and baro corrected altitude. It also does not require the ADC for this to work. While lacking the altitude bug, it sure is easy to switch between heading bug and GPSS!
