I purchased 2 IFD 440's. And was told it is a complete swap out with all functionality that is in the Garmin 530.
Problem:
I have a storm scope WX 500 in my PA32  & EX5000 display. With the Garmin I had control of the storm scope in all phases, i.e Range 20 mls to 200 mls, 120 or 360 degree zones display and most important strike count.
The IFD 440 do not show strike counts. The display does show strike areas but without the count, you cannot validate the timing & proximity of the strikes. Hence it is not a true Strike finder. For those of us that use a storm scope for it's intent, strike  count and zone control is critical.
Does Avidyne have any intention to TSO this unit for count display?

Bumping this topic to see if it will be integrated in 10.3

Thanks!

I kept one of my GNS430s for the WX500 TSO integration.  





True WX500 integration in the IFD would be a nice bonus and then I can get rid of the other GNS430. 

Below the WX overlay tab is cut in half and needs scrolling up.

Me too.  I kept the GNS430 for its dedicated traffic page display.  I'd get a second IFD440 if it had a dedicated traffic page I could select.

I guess that means I would want to see that in 10.3.  Probably at bit much to ask I know.

I wasn't aware of this topic, since it was created before my tenure on AvidyneLive.  It is not currently scheduled for inclusion in 10.3.  I'll take a look to see if it's feasible.  No promises...

Another oldie is the ability to display TWX670 (your own product!) in cell mode on the IFDs.
