The G6000 was designed to be paperless, but really wasn’t ready for it, so no chart holder, which was a $2 plastic clip. The 605 had a neat preselect for QNH, set the landing QNH, hit the button at transition. Never made it on either the 350 (smaller) or Globals. I asked Collins VP, “it was never requested, simple to add”.
The G6000 had been pretty well settled, so why is tow bar head very different on the G7500? Why is the lav service door flimsy and opens against the wind?
That’s a start.

The lav door will be modded to open on forward hinges so not liable to coming open on newer builds. Tow bar is mystery, not changing, either. The tow bar is standard fit, so no extra profit and would have been cheaper to use the G6000 one if strength allowed.
