New Garmin standby instrument for permit aircraft

Avionics geek.
Somewhere remote in Devon, UK.

Niiice. And the price of $1199, if they keep that promise, is likely to unseat many a competitor.

LKBU (near Prague), Czech Republic

Lots of extra detail here.

I think that will steel a lot of GRT Mini business as it also doubles as an autopilot controller.

It’d be nice to see an engine monitor in the same package.

Very very nice. Added to the Rv-14 avionics plans…


Looks nice, but it’s awfully small considering that it display lots of information. The display is about 40% smaller than the MGL Xtreme that is already as small as it gets without becoming too small. I really cannot see any meaningful use for this other than as an independent instrument backup for IFR (where it looks to be perfect btw). Why would anyone have a backup for VFR when everybody has at least two GPS’es in the cockpit already? But then again, It has a very good price, takes very little space and looks cool, so why not?

Also, “permit” is a UK only term, and makes no sense other places. Most experimentals in Europe are not operated on a “permit”. “Non-certified” is the only term that fits all the aircraft that can use this instrument.
