I know when Steve was mentioning the outlook for updates at the beginning of this year (prior to the official release of 10.2.3.1) he mentioned the faint possibility of 10.3 before the end of the year.  I'm not looking for any definitive dates or deadlines, but I was curious how 10.3 is coming along and if it's looking more like early next year, mid, etc.

Thanks,

Russell

Would be nice, but no it will be next year.  There will be a very minor release coming soon - 10.2.4.1.  It has a few bug fixes, but no significant new features.  I'll have release notes as it gets nearer.

The way it always works for me is that the release always comes out just after getting my plane out of the shop.  In that case, the next release will happen at the end of February when I will be able to retrieve my bird from its latest overhaul.

Going for the Aspen Max upgrade and while there, pulling the STEC30, AXP340, SkyTrax100.  Installing STEC55X, L3 NGT9000, and a few other goodies.

Apparently so.  In addition to the above mentioned items, I'm replacing the stock Cessna fuel senders with CIES digital senders.  They have to send the JPI EDM900 back to the factory for conversion from analog to digital so while there they are going to add Carb temp to it.  I am also replacing the stock flap indicator with the Visual Instruments LED indicator.  Also thinking about ditching the standby vacuum attitude indicator for something new.

I know that I already have way too much money invested in this plane so at this point, I'm not worrying about it, I just do what makes me happy.

My son and his wife live in Germany and it will be many years, if ever that they move back but I just found out last December that I have a daughter that I never knew about.  I was in the USAF as a Boomer in the KC-135 and was deployed a lot.  One deployment, when I came home, my girlfriend was gone. Her parents said she moved back to SC and married her high school sweetheart. I moved on.  She never told me nor my daughter that I was her father.  She found me through DNA testing.  I have a son-in-law and two more grandchildren.  It's been awesome and they are even moving to Louisville next summer.  One of the things we did while they visited last summer was to go flying.  She was an officer in the Air Force but didn't get to fly.  She loved it and when they went back home, her company, USAA, is now paying for her to get a degree in aviation, which will include PPL, Instrument, Commercial, and CFI.  When she is done with the private part, her husband will work towards his.

My thoughts at this point is to make the C172 into a generational plane.  It's a nice bird and already has a nice panel.  After this upgrade, the next thing will be interior, then paint, and eventually a 180 hp upgrade.  My goal is to make it better than new and keep it in the family for a long time.

I have also been talking to a friend that wants to buy something faster than his Carbon Cub for travel and we have been considering a partnership to do that.  Oh boy, another airplane to spend money on.

Oh dear, it looks like RF legs (10.4) is a very long way off indeed. :-(

What min software version will I need to be at to upgrade to 10.3 without an intermediary update? 


Thanks.

So, RF aren’t in 10.3? Not that there are any I would fly routinely, But it’s only a matter of time.

It's a little early for that, but I don't expect there to be any minimum version to upgrade.  The farther out of date you are, though, the longer the update will take.

I took Vince's post as tongue-in-cheek based on the Captain's post.  RF is still scheduled for 10.3.

Thanks Steve, you guys are the greatest.  I really wouldn't have been seen in public with a Garmin hat.  I did use it to wash the car though.


Here is a pic of my current panel before the next upgrade in February.

... although, if you are still at 10.0, there's quite a bit more to the process, including removal, reprogramming, and replacement of an SD card.  I'm not sure if that's what you meant by "intermediary upgrade", but just so you know...
