It sounds like the best option from where I'm sitting and as you stated the 1090 will allow you fly on either side of the pond.

Since the 35R is only OUT I assume that you have an IN source to display on your G3X, yes?

Sounds like a beautiful panel.

I have no idea about what input/export fees are for you. But Trig is based in Europe, perhaps cheaper? A TT-22 can read the ?ADSB+? output from your GTN, works in the US as an ADSB-out device. While nice to have, ADSB-in is not required in the US.

Problem with this thinking is that the G5 with the optional battery is a great stand alone backup, if I use the 45R/660 as backup then I need to provide a more fault tolerant electrical system...
Hello Control,

It is better than nothing, but we wouldn't consider the attitude sensors in any ADS-B receiver to be a substitute for a G5 in IMC. The G5 is the real deal.

We announced last week that the G5 is now approved as the backup instrument for G500 and G500 TXi systems in over 600 certified aircraft.

The G5 is also a backup for the autopilot system should your G3X Touch display(s) become unavailable.

With your GTN (or Aera 660) and G5, you can fly autopilot coupled to the flight plan anywhere in the world. Now that's a backup instrument!



You might think about buying the GTX 35R and G5 now to complete your IFR installation, then when you get ready to come to the U.S., buy or borrow a GDL 39/39R/50/50R/52/52R ADS-B receiver to connect to your display(s) and receive ADS-B traffic and weather. Your Aera 660 will also communicate via hardwire or Bluetooth to any of those receivers just as it would a GTX 45R. Lots of great options.

Thanks,
Steve

I just ordered my 35R to go along with my gG3X and GDL39. Cheapest way I?ve seen to get fully adsb compliant. The 45r would be nice to get weather and traffic on the 650, but that screen is already cluttered enough
