First post.  I just ordered an IFD 540 and 440 to swap in for my 530W and 430W.  Been playing with the trainer app for months and love the IFD.  I have a 1979 Piper Turbo Dakota and I'm having my panel rebuilt next year and adding a G3X, G5 backup and GFC 500 autopilot.

I have some questions about VNAV capture on the GFC 500.  I read that to get VNAV to work properly from the IFD to the G3X and G5 the IFD needs a baro source and a setting in setup set to ENABLE LABELS.

I  know the IFDs can have altitude constraints on each waypoint, but I'm a little fuzzy on whether or not the VNAV capture mode on the GFC 500 will work like it does with a GTN 750 with an IFD 540.
