Hi Julien;
Sorry if you didn't get a cascades of responses to your question.

And I'm sorry that I don't feel competent or up to speed on these systems to give you advice.

I did find a You Tube video by MidWest Panel Builders that may help you forward in your quest.

It's here:

Good luck,

Please let us know what you decide.

Hello wise people!

The subject says it all. But for a little more information, I already have twin G5's, along with GNC255A, GTR225A, and GTX 335.

A friend keeps recommending the Garmin GPS175, but I wonder if there is anything more cost effective from outside the Garmin family? Or should I just stick with what I have?

Alternately, I've seen that there are larger systems that incorporate Comms. Has anyone had success trading in a radio and or transponder toward a larger unit?

Your thoughts would be most appreciated!
