Are you sure about this? I'm hoping so as I am itching to have the GPS175 added to the Garmin avionics package!

Read all the linked threads. Read your OpLims. Do they refer to the ASTM rules?

No but ASTM rules apply to all aircraft identified as LSA. There is also a placard on the panel that states no flight into IMC because of the ASTM definition of LSA.

As much as I want it to be true that I could rip that placard off the panel and replace it with a GPS175 I believe it the ASTM rule applies.

It's an E-LSA. Once certified, only the certification OpLims apply.
