Will GFC-500 work with Aspen?
I currently have a S-Tec 50 autopilot in my 182P that doesn't work very well. I'm considering replacing it with another A/P and one option is the Garmin GFC-500, I thought. I have an Aspen 1000 Pro EFIS and a Garmin GTN 750. Speaking to one of the local shops I was told that autopilot will not work with my Aspen 1000 Pro. I know Garmin is trying to force their customers to stay with their line of avionics but didn't realize they are this successful at it. Does anyone know if that is correct? My other options are TruTrak, Trio and the S-Tec 3100. The first two would probably be cheaper then Garmin or S-Tec but also less capable.
