If you wait until Navworx is granted their global amoc, you'll be fine. You'll also have to purchase their upgrade. Read their service bulletin for more info.

The open question is how long it will take the faa to get the global amoc published.

I'm going to buy a trig or Grand Rapids gps source and interface it just like Bill is doing with his add on. It costs a few bucks more, but I can buy the units now from a dealer I trust. I'll deal with an AMOC just for the sheer satisfaction of not paying Navworx for another empty promise.

Have you noticed that you have to order (and pay for) the hardware mod before December 31 to get one. Very efficient to force us to pay for something that isn't approved, isn't being manufactured, and is being scheduled at a lower priority than the certified boxes.

NO THANKS

Don

I have to say that at this point I doubt that I would choose a Navworx product regardless of the ultimate outcome of all of this, and the main reason for that is the inexcusable way in which Navworx have conducted themselves especially in the area of customer communication.

All companies make mistakes. It's what you do after the mistake that separates one company from another.

My exact situation and feelings. Was ready to order when all of this controversy started. For once my procrastination paid off! I feel for all of you caught in the middle of this fiasco. I still have to get my 12 compliant sometime in the next two years, but I will not even consider a Navworx product, as I doubt the company can stay viable in the long term with the horrible reputation they have managed to build.

I have $1890 in the pot since this poker game began last August and am waiting for the next cards to fill the hand.

My gut feeling is Bill Moffiet wants to stay in business, has reached a level of compliance with FAA and is waiting for response to his application for Global AMOC concerning the product.

That will probably happen if indeed the war is over with FAA. They probably want this whole mess to go away also.

After talking with him, I feel I will receive an approved system.

Would someone at Oshkosh please ask Bill directly, if 1090 is in V5?

No one seems to care at this point but for me, it was a selling point right along with 2020 compliance. I won't consider the Navworx issue behind me till I get both.

Is 1090 required in Canada?

If you read the service bulletins for both models, you would know the answer. The service bulletins list the feature changes in V5.

The one question that has not been answered to my knowledge...:

Will software version 5 work WITHOUT the hardware changes?

It is addressed in the service bulletin. V5 will auto detect the gps source and set the SIL value appropriately.

Let's not carry on the same conversation in multiple threads.

I've believed what was written on the Navworx site before and have been made a fool of. Forgive me for seeking clarification.
