Is there any chance Avidyne would consider a replacement or upgrade to get ADSB in from this same hole?

Yes, it's called a Garmin GTX345 . . lol

I am doing that this week, since the in/out is all in one box, it's dual band and it plays well with the Avidyne IFD and the Aspens.

No I wish, but they had everything out of my panel so it made sense to do it now instead of waiting til later. Ironically the GTX345 was announced the day I picked up my airplane with the "new" AXP340 in February 2016. Now finally I'm correcting that mistake.

Luckily I sold my 340 before it was installed, was pretty sure it was outdated a few months after it finally started shipping (another product I was on the pre-buy list for). If Avidyne has a shortcoming has to be ADSB products in and out, I installed a NGT 9000 instead and it plays well with my G and Avidyne boxes but is also good as a stand alone solution. Only downside is the tiny display but its better than nothing if you don't send the traffic/weather to another box to view.

Can someone confirm that:

1.  Lynx NGT 9000 displays on IFD540 both its Dual ADSB and its Interrogated transponder traffic?
2. GTX345 displays on IFD540 its Dual ADSB and TAS605 interrogated traffic inputted into 345?

Thanks if anybody has this experience.
