Looks like I'm now going to have to trade in my SR22 GTS Turbo for the SR 22 GTS Turbo Perspective... I almost held off buying the standard GTS Turbo in January because I heard a rumor that Cirrus was going to offer a Garmin avionics suite, but when I asked Cirrus, they said "No way... we're going to stay Avidyne for the forseeable future!" (I guess that's called plausible deniability! LOL!) So I went ahead and got the Avidyne GTS Turbo!
Looks like Cirrus is also getting a "one-up" on the Cessna 400 as well...

Quoting Dw747400 (Reply 1): How so? the virtual vision system is fully retrofitable on all G1000 units accordign to Garmin, regardless of airframe.
I just meant that Cirrus has "one-up'd" Cessna with those 12" displays... I should have been clearer on that point!
Quoting Dw747400 (Reply 1): And belated congrats on your pruchase! Sounds like someone will be having lots of fun!
I'm already having LOTS of fun! The wife and I are taking a full week to fly a zig-zag across the country from east coast to west coast next month... with daily stops at little "out-of-the-way" little GA airports. And the Cirrus is the perfect way to do it!
It's one of the most comfortable x-country planes I've ever flown!

I have a problem with this.. As a CSIP and as the owner of a training center i am not really happy having so many different Cirrus aircraft out there with so many different avionics that provides negative ROI for operators. The people who want to fly these things want the latest greatest and if the software is not up to date, people will turn the airplane down.
Granted a glass cockpit airplane is a major step up compared to non glass Cirrus , the addition of this virtual cockpit will create even more problems for people who are having issues with Acidyne stuff.
