    Navworx shuts down

    Just got word Navworx is shutting down. I guess they couldn't make it work with all the problems they had with the FAA. Here's what the Dallas Avionics web site say as well as Navworx.

    Looking for a replacement for my Navworx that will work with my AFS-5600. What are my choices?

    The ideal solution would be using our transponder and ADS-B receiver:
    AF-5000 (SkyView or HDX) with SV-XPNDR-261, SV-ADSB-472, and SV-GPS-2020 (if you don't have a GPS Navigator)

    A comparable product to the Navworx would be:
    uAvionics echoUAT (Needs a certified GPS or Navigator)

    Freeflight RANGR Lite FDL-978-XVRL

    Freeflight RANGR FDL-978-XVR (Needs a GPS Navigator)

    It would be a great marketing coup for Dynon/AFS to put together a couple bundles and offer them at a great price to Navworx users.

    Bundle #1: SV-ADSB-472 and SV-XPNDR-261

    Bundle #2: SV-ADSB-472, SV-XPNDR-261, and SV-GPS-2020

    Or perhaps trade in your Navworx ADS600-B or ADS600-EXP to get a free SV-ADSB-472 with the purchase of a SV-XPNDR-261?

    Imagine the good will that would create for Dynon/AFS customers and within the industry.

    Our largest market of Navworx users are actually using 3/400s displays. Though once the team at Dynon get the SV-ADSB-472 shipping again the marketing team might consider something like this.

    When will the sv-adsb-472 be available?

    Maybe it would the impetus to get folks to upgrade to 5000s?

    Bummed about NavWorx. That was going to be my solution.

    Currently have a 4500. Bundling an upgrade to 5000 w/ sv-adsb-472 might make marketing sense.

    In reality, I only really need an in solution that will display on the 4500. I have 1090 ES out already.

    I'm happy to assist in answering AMOC questions. I was the author of two of the three AMOCs and am still investigating some other options with FAA now that Bill has shuttered his business.
