Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

Many models (e.g. G1000 Lycoming DA40s originally with non-WAAS GIA63s installed), were upgradable to WAAS GIA63Ws back when Garmin still produced GIA63Ws. Software exists to take advantage of WAAS on these aircraft (e.g., to fly LPV approaches). Was just speaking to the OEM manager at Garmin earli...

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

When Diamond wants to share with DAN, they will post something. They said nothing of substance in their reply beyond that they will have something for DAN in the “coming weeks”. I’m not DAI’s spokesperson or apologist and I have nothing to hide or disclose. DAI can speak for themselves and I, like e...

Did you ask if it would ever support the KAP 140 Autopilot? I have my doubts there will be a path for our 2004 WAAS upgraded bird. The KAP 140 A/P should interface with the NXi. However, this will require further engineering by Garmin. The above was researched several months ago by Zach, Garmin’s O...
