New EFIS for Light Sport

This week's Dallas AEA (Aircraft Electronics Assoc.) Convention has tons of cool new electronics. Of note to sport pilots is the G3X system from Garmin. It's a PFD (Primary Flight Display) and MFD (Multi Function Display) system that's built around Garmin's GDU 370/375 displays. Intended for LSA and Experimental category aircraft, the non-certified system can display information across one, two or three screens. The single screen version with all capabilities lists at $3995. The full G3X system that will include ADAHRS (Attitude/Heading Reference System), EIS (Engine Information System), magnetometer and temperature probe, once available, will go at an estimated price of $9,995.00.
Garmin will display the system at Sun'nFun in two weeks. Be there or be square!
