Read the information - looks like Cirrus with the ifd's and dfc90 is the initial target market which I am in. You are taking reservations, which I'd like to participate in, but wondering when the units will be available, and how many modifications, wiring, will it take to install in place of the EX5000 PFD MFD?

The Aviation Consumer article (check their Facebook page) says this. It's not precise, but it's more detail than what was in yesterday's announcement:

Quote
The initial STC will be for Cirrus models that are currently equipped with the Entegra displays and while much of the existing wiring harnesses can be used, they require new interface connectors. And since the 12-inch Vantage displays are much larger than the Entegra displays they replace (they stand taller), shops will need to replace the instrument panel during installation.
Avidyne estimates that typical Cirrus installations might be accomplished in around 40 hours of shop time.
