The Garmin 496 will be installed as planned and the extinct Loran M1 will be retired to the boat anchor department or make for an interesting door stop, heck maybe even a wheel chock. Jason at red eagle is going to test the existing panel mounted DME since it was unplugged. If the unit works I am going to have that wired to the Nav 2 radio as a back up to the Garmin 530 and Nav 1.
- Potential overhaul/exchange Encoding altimeter - $1500 - $2000 (I'll pass on this)
- Trans Cal nano blind encoder - $275 (unit only)
- Labor to Troubleshoot, rewire and mount - @$550
- Status on Garmin 496 install - waiting for an estimate sometime tomorrow.
