I went on my second flight with my new IFD 540 today.  I noticed several times that some traffic was shown with tail numbers.  I have a TAS 605 installed but did not think that it was capable of receiving tail numbers. Where is this information coming from?

I have a picture, I just cannot figure out how to post it.

Yes, but I have a TAS605.  The TAS605A is not shipping yet.

The TAS6XX will display tail number information if the following requirements are met:
  1. U.S. registered aircraft
  2. The target aircraft must have a Mode S Transponder
  3. Avidyne display
