Avidyne IFD series

Recommended Posts

Anyone know anything about creating an Avidyne IFD550 for Xplane11? There is no PC trainer available, only an iPad trainer, so I'm not sure how one would use that to create a PC addon.. A lot of pilot-owners out there with the desire for quality training in a simulator, and with touch-screen integration, an IFD version of RXP's GTN series would be great. Doesn't look like it's on RXP's radar, though. Any thoughts?

I asked RXP about this and never received a response although the automatic reply indicated that they respond within 72hr. It seems that the thousands of installed Avidyne IFD units aren't sufficient to justify the effort compared to the current or expected Garmin volumes.

My (real)plane has an IFD-540 and I too would like the 540 for x-plane.  I tried to contact RXP but couldn't figure out how to start a support ticket.  Just got redirected to the forms here.  I ended up purchasing the rpx-530 as it's the closest thing in functionality.
The iPad trainer is first class and it would be terrific if someone could get the data from that to talk to x-p.  I would be happy to just use an ipad mini and something like the knobster.
