So this thread looks like an appropriate place to ask a question;
I’m starting soon on a panel upgrade that will include 2 G5s, a GNX 375 and a Aera 660. My current autopilot is a TT Vizion 385 but I’m thinking of ditching that in favor of the Garmin AP G5/GMC507 combo.
So far I know diddly squat about how the 375 and 660 will “talk” to the G5s to drive the autopilot; do I need a “GPS select” switch to pick which GPS drives the AP? I’m thinking there will be times when it will be easier to pick a waypoint and hit “direct, enter” on the bigger screen 660, but for IFR stuff, the 375 should be driving the AP... or will the system just talk to each other automagically?
My panel will be almost exactly the pic below, but I just gotta get my head around the connectivity details...
