    Looking at going with Garmin like the 330 or 345 which apparently will talk to my Area 660 GPS and my iPad.

    Lets see some pics and opinions on what other Eagle owners are doing?

    Lots of good used KT76A transponders stacked up in avionics shops gathering dust. Get a shop to throw in a couple of them along with a deal to buy the Garmin GDL-82. Some are advertising $1,795 installed but I'm sure that's for a Wichita or FLA built variety.

    Not an Eagle owner, but it depends on current equipment and what your desires are.
    Me, I intend to use the uAvionix stuff with my old radios. If I had higher end equipment I would consider an upgrade. But when the cost of the radios is worth more than the airplane, I don't see it.

    uAvionics SkyBeacon (experimental) and Garmin GDL-82 (certified) are the obvious choices if you already have a good transponder. If you don't, the Stratus ESG (certified) is still the best choice as an all-in-one transponder/ADS-B/WaaS GPS box. If you already have a GPS and want to use it, it's time to do research, 'cause there are a lot of choices out there. I have found the AOPA ADS-B chooser to be useful:

    I went with a GDL-82 setup .....probably upgrade my Narco 150 with a Digital Garmin GTX-337 as they are selling for $500 used but "certified".

    The GDL-82 was the way to go overall price and Garmin quality/support.

    I just installed the Uavionix Echo UAT. Works great and provides adsb in and out. $1400. Weighs less than half a pound, wiring etc included.
