    Can anyone tell me what the cost to add active traffic has been for them? Had a near miss the other day and don’t want to repeat that. I have a 696 that I could add a Zaon to but not sure about the quality vs TCAS.

    Thanks!

    Avidyne posts their retail price list on their website. http://www.avidyne.com/downloads/brochures/AV645_Retail_PL.pdf
    Sarasota Avionics posts installed prices for some items, or you can email them for a make/model dependent quote.

    Rough figures, the Garmin 800 and the Avidyne TAS600 start around $12k installed, and go up from there.

    I’m currently installing a Avidyne TAS620 in my 340. Had a TAS615 in my last Aztec. Less equipment than the Garmin unit and easier install.

    They quoted me $18,590 for the Avidyne TAS-605A 20 miles 55,000 feet.

      I was told it would cost around $5,000 to get an ADS-B setup.

      I had a Zaon and it works well with the 696 unit in high traffic areas. I had sold it awhile back, and am considering adding the Stratus 2 for use with foreflight as it gives weather, traffic, backup AI, etc and is only ~ 800 or so. Not the same as active traffic, but a fair compromise.

      Right now I still have the 696 on the yoke and the mini on the lap.

      I had an air-to-air miss by less than 50 ft. last Friday.

      Damn geese keep forgetting to turn on their Mode S.

      I’m installing the TAS605A (13nm and 5500-foot vertical) quote is $11k.
      Does ADS-B In/Out as well, may as well get that out of the way.
