TOGA

Steve

Thanks. That was exactly what I was looking for. I do have a GTN650 and the combined capability of this equipment rivals the G1000 in the King Air 300 that I fly. Good stuff.

Anybody figured out if the flight director on the Garmin G3X with GMC305 controller has a Take Off Go Around Function? I must have missed that day in school:)!

ADI

True and if I didn't have the battery backed up Dynon D10A,
I would want the Gemini PFD.
I have battery back up on G3X, D10A, and Gemini. Enough
is enough:)!!
