Default F1 Rocket full panel upgrade

https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...OC?usp=sharing

The panel was overdue. Clean work and outstanding service from the avionics shop. Sold the TruTrak AP to have everything match with Garmin. I did not want any CB or switches on the panel. Wanted it clean and efficient. All switches moved to the right console and all CB moved to the lower console.

Infinity grip is nearly HOTAS with fuel pump, starter, trim, flaps, comms and AP cw switch. Only thing I wish I could get is a dual comm switch on the throttle.

Very nice. Pretty much the same equipment I installed in mine last year :-)

Thanks. Replaced the TruTrak for Garmin and also changed the VM1000 engine monitoring for the Garmin EIS. The GMA 245 and GTR20 are both remote.

Are you using the GNX 375? In Canada we ned dual independent navigation source which is why I needed the GNC255 and GNX375

Yes, I have the 375. I?m not IFR rated but I?ve been thinking about it. It seemed a good idea to go with the 375 since I was redoing everything else.

It is a pretty nice unit, just wish it has full functionality with the G3X. I added the 255A to make it IFR.

Curious what functionality it lacks. I?ve only really used it as a transponder and ADS-B related functions.

It would have been nice for the GNX375 to have full functionality with the GPS portion. It does do everything for the transponder, the GNC 255A and the GMA245 but not the GPS.

Once you have created a flight plan on the G3X and sent it over to the GNX375, you can no longer modify it or go direct to, unless you revert to the G3X internal GPS. The G3X also cannot load an approach in the same fashion as a GTN or GNX, it does not load up via an Initial Approach Fix (IAF). The procedure is always via vector transition or straight in.

Ideally the G3X could do every function the 375 does, except on a much bigger screen.
