Take a close look at the new Dynon ADS-B in box they just announced and you'll see the uAvionix logo. Wondering now if I can just install the uAvionix IN device and not have to deal with the trade-in option and cost.

Default ASDB / Mode S

I talked with these guys at Sun 'n Fun ... very interesting engineers. GRT is going to route out the top of their GPS to mount this box to make one very small package. Interestingly, they will have a ADSB/Mode S unit available if I remember correctly in the 1200-1600 range. The GRT or most GLASS will be able to set the code, like with any remote mounted transponder. Oh ... it will also have WiFi out for tablets.

A company to watch.

Default Echo Installed

I finished the install of the Echo today and the setup app says that it's working although I haven't test flown it yet. I'm getting the 2020 compliant GPS from the GNS430W and the install was pretty easy. I had to make a couple of calls to Uavionix support and they (Ryan) were very helpful.

How many of you above in the process of the install are considering the wireless transponder interface?

Just to add a positive note dealing with the uAvioni support staff...they responded to my written questions the following morning. The pilot/installation manual did not specify what size CB was required, nor stated the minimum separation distance required between the transponder and ADS-B antennas.

Support replied that a 1 amp CB is sufficient and the ADS-B antenna should be mounted a minimum of one meter from the transponder antenna. The reference to the CB is now on page 14 of the online manual. The antenna info has not been updated.

I installed the antenna today and ran the RG-400 through the center tunnel. Haven't decided where I am going to locate the transceiver yet. The limiting factor is the maximum length of coax. It cannot exceed 2.59 meters to limit db loss. My current thinking is to mount the unit under the instrument panel near the tunnel.

I opted for the GRT Sky-Safe 2020 GPS. It is on backorder so I am taking a time-out from the project.

I have an old Garmin 327 so this could work for me. The options keep coming if I keep waiting.

Same here. I am in the civilian version of the military's "Hurry Up and Wait" mode.
