My transponder, a Garmin 330 remote mounted, was upgraded to an ES version. When all this was going on I considered options. Up hearing of death of Navworx, I call Tim Haas of Approach Systems to consult. I have his Hub installed. He was completely shocked and was unaware of the closing of Navworx. We discussed a couple of options and suggest I call Rob Hickman since I have two 5500T's installed.
Rob advised me that they have a new ADS-B receiver coming out and will adapt easily. Tim said he can make the harness or possibly and adapter from the Navworx harness.
So, the solution was relatively easy and probably less than a $1000. I suspect a couple of hours of install time and I'll be done.
FYI, the Garmin solution for the same issue could have reached $3000 or more.
If you have a solution for your install, post!!! It will help everyone that has been affected.
I'm in a similar boat. I think I'll probably sell my Garmin transponder and purchase the Dynon remote transponder and ADSB receiver. My only question is when to pull the trigger. Fortunately, budget and my wife' to do list makes it pretty clear that it will be awhile. My reasoning for going this route are some of the integration issues I've had with Navworx and AFS. Those should not be an issue staying with a single vendor solution.
