Not Dynon nor Garmin, but here is something I got working last night for almost "no cost" ...

PFD provided by iLevil App on iPad with WiFi data from ILevil 3AW using built in AHRS, Pitot and Static ports
ENG provided by iLevil App on iPad with WiFi data from iLevil 3AW using engine data from GRT Engine monitor via serial port to ILevil 3AW
MAP provided by Foreflight on iPad
TRAFFIC and WEATHER ADSB data provided to Foreflight via WiFi from the iLevil 3AW.

The mounting (RAM Mount) is not perfectly aligned yet but will get corrected.
There are NO WIRES to the back seat (unless you choose to connect a charging cable to the charging port on the right side).

Yes, there is adequate stick clearance and no interference with passenger in back seat.

My images did not appear. What did I do wrong?

I know that at the end was just a link but I came back later and did "Insert Image" using link for each image.

I must have missed the class and not done my homework on getting pictures to work.

THANKS to anyone who can inform me or fix for me.

Here is a picture of a Garmin G5 that I installed for the back seat occupant on my RV8 with a fastback conversion. It's in the very initial stages of the fitout in the photo and I subsequently trimmed away the .063 aluminium so that there's no loss of view. It's secured with double sided tape and cable ties to preserve the integrity of the roll bar. I measured very carefully and it doesn't impinge on the front seat at all and the knobs miss the gas struts on the canopy. I went for the G5 because I thought that a bigger display set lower might not work so well. But seeing some of the other good looking setups on the thread, I might have been mistaken and that might have been a better way to go. The disadvantage is that as backup instrument it needs it's own pitot and static connections but it does work well and talks to the G3X up the front without issue. I had hoped that I could configure it to repeat the airspeed and altitude from the front but that's not the way it worked.

Thanks.

Thank you very much!!

But what did you do differently?

I want to know "how to fish".

I clearly missed something and it is probably right before my eyes.

I deleted "-no?authuser=0" at the end of each pics address to get the them to show in the post.

I also rescaled the second pic to "w800-h600" from "w1600-h1200", which is too large IMO.

You can always see what someone has done in their post by using the "Quote" button to examine their post (but then backing out and not actually posting anything while in the "Quote" mode if you don't care to).

Hope that helps.

AHA!!!!

I had rescaled one of the photos and forgot to do the other.

But I totally missed the deletion instruction.

Again, thanks! I will now try a few more pics.
