Any update from Avidyne on this? 
The last i heard was that there is inventory waiting for FAA approval; I was told by a 'higher up' that approval was supposed to be early Q1. 

Just wondering if there was any updates to that information. I figure since we are 'insiders' we should be the first to know ;)

Well, just for the insiders...  I don't want to jinx it, but it's close.

Is that a dual-band SkyTrax? I would be very interested in one. Hopefully close means within a couple of months. I was getting ready to rip out the current Skytrax and an AXP-340 in favor of (GASP!) a Garmin device.

No, straight up replacement for the existing SkyTrax100.  G*, sigh.  But I understand.  Have you considered the NGT9000 (either panel or remote)?

If I’m going to spend that much money, I think the new GTX375 transponder gives me a little more that the NGT9000. Backup GPS, dual band In, AHRS. I wasn’t all that impressed with the NGT9000 in the plane I flew to get my commercial certificate. I’ve also heard some people complain about the WiFi in the NGT9000, but I’m not sure how widespread that problem is. The GTX345 is nice too, at a lower price point. 

I would really like it if Avidyne could provide a dual-band In solution to pair with the AXP-340. I don’t really want to rip it out of the panel. I think it is a nice transponder. 

Any idea what happened to the Freeflight dual-band unit? The only place I can find it is in one of their brochures. If it worked well with the IFD, it could probably replace my Skytrax100.

Agree — seems hardly debatable that there is demand for a dual-band IN solution.

+1.  I installed the MLB100, but I was disappointed that it wasn't dual-band, and wouldn't have done it except that I was trying to support Avidyne.  Most customers are probably not so altruistic.
