Default Heated pitot AOA option from Dynon

I am at the stage where I need to install the pitot tube in my wings. I have heard that there are some possible issues with the heated pitot/AOA from Dynon as an option. I have read the service bulletin on the moisture/freezing issue. I believe I would like to have a heated unit. Are there other units available that work with the Dynon panel at a later date when I start on this expensive panel? Are they interchangable? Any thoughts?

Default pitot

If you are not close to flying you can just install the mast and get the pitot later. This is what I did.

I can offer the data point that the Dynon probe works well driving a Garmin g3x AOA and my D10A on my Glasair.

Hopefully someone has done the other way around, but if I were worried I'd try the Garmin probe driving the Dynon. I'd be really surprised if it wouldn't work with the Skyview, but hopefully someone here has tried it.

The mast will be the same, if dynon has their fix by when you are ready. I haven't had freezing problems in spite of a bunch of cold rain followed by freezing but they've been well discussed here.
