Kick starting this topic...
I have used Garmin Pilot for about 8 months now and like it primarily because it supports Android (my phone) and IOS (my iPad). I also thought that it might make integration with installed avionics tighter - if I install more Garmin products. Though that is the trap Garmin is hoping I fall in...I'm considering other options especially with other 'glass panel' options available - Avidyne, Bendix, etc.

I must say that I do like the Garmin Pilot interface - though it is what I have become accustomed to and haven't really tried other options. It is really nice that all setup moves between my phone and iPad transparently.

Anyone out there have Avidyne IFDxxx GPS Navigators installed? Pros? Cons? The yet to be released BendixKing AeroVue Touch looks intriguing at approx. $13K...

Would love the collective wisdom of the group!!!
