I just wish "retrofitting" was actually viable in FS. You can see in the screenshots they just sort of jam the screens in there. If it came with new config files for a bunch of popular 3rd party GA add-ons to put the screens in the VC I would probably be all over that.

It would be worth getting if you have the Eaglesoft Columbia 400, you can replace the Avadyne with the flight1 version which appears to be a lot betterGraham

The Flight1 Avidyne system replicates the landscape format of the Entegra system. The Columbia 400 utilizes the portrait format and doesn't exactly fit. HTH!Owen

Awesome, I can put the SR-20 back on my computer now, LOL, no more disappearing naviads and airports.

Hmm, the SR20 does fine on a majority of machines...perhaps you haven't availed yourself of the 2 free upgrades for that aircraft since it was released.The current download includes those upgrades and may be had by simply redownloading and reinstalling with the F1 Wrapper system :-)Oh yes, Owen is correct. In our Columbia 400, the Avidyne Entegra system is Portrait version as opposed to the Landscape version as found in our Cirrus SR20 and SR22 series.Hope this helps.

FSAvidyne has a custom built database that is newer than either FS9 or FSX. And... is not based on either of default databases. Give it a try, I gaurantee it is the most advanced Avidyne system available for FS9 or FSX or your money back. (other than Flight1tech's Avidyne Student)Jim

Does this model the actual color terrain mode of the MFD? Might have to pick it up if so... What are the actual limitations on this vs. the real thing? Manual available anywhere?

FSAvidyne does not render color terrain. Avidyne Student does, including terrain warnings, and it displays many other things such as airways, obstacles, including obstacle warnings, special use airspace, tower zones, etc.FSAvidyne is a derivative of the Professional Avidyne Student simulation and was developed to accommodate the FS market price point.The only thing that Avidyne Student does not have with respect to the real units is live NEXRAD and CMax (Electronic Charts)For more information about the Avidyne Student, you can go here:http://www.flight1tech.com
