I don't think we've publicized our plans for an EX500/600/5000 software update so here you go:

R8.2 enables the display of ADS-B IN Traffic and subscription-free FIS-B Wx on Avidyne‚Äôs EX500, EX600, and EX5000 Series MFDs using Avidyne SkyTrax 100 receiver and SkyTrax 200/210 transceivers.   This release will be available later this year.

Steve -- After you guys work out the issue with L3 Lynx FIS-B and TIS-B displaying on IFDs (see http://forums.avidyne.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=849&PN=2&title=connecting-with-an-ngt-9000), will that also provide a ready pathway to also enabling L3 Lynx FIS-B and TIS-B data displayed on the EX5000C (after R8.2 is installed)?

Or other third party ADS-B TIS sources, like the Garmin 3x5 transponders?

Just answered a similar question on a different thread.   Here's the cut and paste from that:

Well we just got a GTX345 ourselves to use for integration testing - so far, no success but it's still early.

However, Release 8.2 is focused on the Avidyne supplied ADS-B devices since those are what we know and those are under our control to ensure we have full access to the data protocols and that they won't change.  Therefore, I would not count on Rel 8.2 supporting the GTX345 (or L3 Lynx) at this time.

On a software-related note, I was speaking with Bendix King about their RDR 2060 upgrade. Is this supported by the EX500? They suggested it might work if the EX500 was configured in RDR 2100 mode as they are quite similar. Mainly I was thinking about sector scan support and the increased range.

It's progressing at the moment. Still optimistic of a mid-year target timeframe.

In the IFD thread, AviTJ states this morning, "... In fact, our recent releases into legacy products of R9, Entegra and EX500/600 MFDs this month has effectively extended the useful life in these products that were initially created long before ADS-B was a topic of conversation."

http://forums.avidyne.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=1444&PID=17920&title=ifd-1021-bug-fix-release-timing#17920

What is this month's Entegra release?  R8.2?  I have missed any announcements about Entegra releases.

Thanks.

8.2 hasn't been officially released yet Larry, but it is very, very close.  I'm certain we'll be announcing it very soon.

TJ, how soon is very soon. It has been very soon forever now! Please advise if you have any confirmed predictions

I received an email from this forum indicating a new message from Ibraham was posted yesterday, which was a follow up to a message posted by billyhasat@gmail.com regarding the approval of Release 8.2 by the FAA.  But that Cirrus had to approve it, which they say they will not do.

While the two messages are interesting and present a conundrum for Cirrus owners, my question is, why are they not appearing on this forum?  I seem to remember something like this happening before on another forum as well.  Puzzling.

Would also request input from Avidyne as to where this leaves Release 8.2 for those of us with EX5000 MFDs in the panel.

I'm having the same experience receiving email notices of new posts, but then not seeing that post on the Forum.  And, the Recent Post feature updates once a week, or so.  I also notice that the "current time" at the top of the Forum home page is grossly in error.
