Default Garmin GDU 460

Has anyone installed a Garmin GDU 460 (10+" display) in a 9A panel?
Seems awfully tight. Anyone have pics?

Could you have made it fit without that, and put the switches where you wanted?

Could you share where you plan to position on the panel?

Yes, there is plenty of room for switches. I will say that my panel is not the stock van's panel, its the modular panel from Affordable panels and that is where the switch extension comes from. Still there is plenty of room but you do need to be cognizant of the support rib behind the panel

Basically the same as this 7 I did but with a GTN, audio panel and auto pilot panel in the center stack. The 9 is also a slider not a tip up.

Walt, can you tell me the size of the opening needed for the EFIS?

Exact dimensions are available in the G3X install manual which you can download from the G3X website.
