Re: worth upgrading to 321.23 ?

Checklist file goes on the upper MFD card. The card has to stay in the slot. The G1000 doesn’t store it internally.

Re: NG40 VS IO-360 real user pros and cons appreciated

I was in the same position making a decision last year. I ultimately chose a used DA40 XLS with a Lycoming engine of course.
