I've got a Baron 58 and just bought an IFD540 for it. The IFD-100 app made the decision easy.

I also have a pair of G5s and am considering upgrading my auto-pilot. Is there any plan to add output of en-route VNAV to the ARINC outputs for consumption by a PFD and/or a VNAV capable auto-pilot?

Sean, should that mean that using ARINC, GFC500 could be driven by the IFD series?

David:

GFC600 in my case, since the 500 is only for singles. But, yes, that's precisely what I was asking. I want the VNAV from the IFD to drive the purple vertical chevron on my G5s and ultimately a GFC autopilot.

I guess I should have read your post more carefully, apologies, but thanks for the info.

The GFC series looks like a great autopilot solution.  Still bummed because I got on the Avidyne train for the DFC 90 and was promised servos, but that never materialized.

Thanks.
