TOPIC: upgrade advise sought

upgrade advise sought 1 month 3 weeks ago #1614

I am open to pretty much anything. I can see the benefit of having the major avionics from the same producer. Is there a specific model that you are recommending? While I want to be thrifty, I don't want to be cheap.

Hi Thomas!
Welcome to Cessna Flyer!

Are you looking at an Avidyne autopilot?

Greetings, I am a new owner of a 182E model. It has a garmin 430 (non-WAAS). The original autopilot is non-functional, and I have upgraded the Attitude Indicator with a G5 unit, and will soon have a Lynx-9000 ADS-B (in/out) unit installed. My thoughts are to update the garmin 430 with an Avidyne IFD 440. Then this winter I hope to upgrade the autopilot to a full 3 axis unit and get a Heading indicator that will work with it - possibly another G5-HSI unit, and add a JPI EDM-900 series engine monitor.

What does the choir recommend? I don't know what is available for this plane, but hope to have it flying for 20 years before I am unable to fly safely and need to sell it.
