I provide flight training in all models of Cirrus. The one I own is a 2004 SR22-G2 with Avidyne and Garmin 430W avionics. I fly in congested airspace (San Francisco Bay Area) and becoming ADS-B compliant well ahead of the 2020 deadline has been on my mind. Additionally, I am not equipped with XM weather, so ADS-B in (FIS-B) to provide in-flight weather is an attractive idea.
I settled on the L-3 Communications Lynx NGT9000+. This would get me ADS-B Out compliant, transmit 1090ES (even though this SR22 doesn’t go to the flight levels, I wanted it for Canada/Mexico), and weather in the cockpit. It also would replace my Skywatch (TRC497) which I know are expensive to repair so I wanted to unload mine before it failed.
Jet Center Medford (Oregon) did the job:
– remove GTX 327
– remove Skywatch
– install NGT 9000+ at top of stack
– re-order the rest of the stack
With Skywatch removed, the plane gained several pounds of useful load. I was cautioned that the audio panel might have to go to the bottom if the 55X couldn’t fit there… but it worked out fine and I’m happy with the stack order. I sold the GTX327 transponder and Skywatch (TRC497) on eBay, got around $900 for each unit.
If you have an SR22 with Avidyne and the GTX327 transponder, I found this to be a great solution and I’m happy with the performance of the Lynx. Message me with any questions.
