Default Wanted: Pirep on GTX 23es

Looking to do a budget upgrade on my 9a avionics. Going with G3x Gdu 370 (non touch). Concerned I won?t have panel space in my center stack for everything thus looking at a remote transponder...specifically the gtx 23es which is of the vintage and does interface with the 370. I really can?t find much info and just wondering about functionality/buttonolgy through the 370 vs the easy of squawk code entry of a panel mount. Your thoughts and experience are greatly appreciated

I have a never installed GTX 23ES with tray and connectors if you?re interested. Originally part of my Stein panel - since swapped to a GTX 45R.

Default works fine

I've been flying with the gtx23es on a non-touch G3x system since 2014, works fine. Enterring a new code does take a couple of button pushes more than a panel mounted unit. It's not ideal, but perfectly usable.



You'll also need a seperate ads-b receiver (I use a gdl39).

Ditto including the GDL39, except for me it's been since 2015.

For those who are using the GTX23 for ADSB out, what are you using for your certified position?

I had one in my RV-10 with G3X legacy displays and liked it a lot. GTN650 as ADSB position OUT source and GDL-39 IN. Doing the same on my -9A except using GDL50R for ADSB IN.

I have a 23es with my touch system and it's great, no issues. Use a gtn650 as position source and gdl-39r for ads-b in.

In fact I'm thinking about selling the 39r to replace with a 52r (for the music), anyone interested in a good deal on a 39r?

A Garmin GPS-20A. My primary nav GPS is the built-in G3X non-WAAS.
