Not sure how many 430Ws there are out there...
...but it has to be 1.7 boatloads. Including in military aircraft. I suspect they will soldier on (so to speak) for many years.

I asked if that means they plan to support the WAAS GPS430 into the future and they said yes. A second rep confirmed this. I now plan to upgrade my GPS to WAAS as the least expensive solution plus I understand how to use it!
