12/30/16 - Avionics for Sale: GTX 327 Transponder, GMA 240 Audio Panel/Intercom, PSM 3000 Stereo Intercom, FlightBox ADS-B in.

My panel upgrade was delayed as the FAA has kept me hoping as result of the loss of my previous CH801. But now that I am building the new panel in the new plane I have components from the previous new plane panel and one new item where I simply ordered the wrong thing. All are in new or like new condition and I will guarantee that they work. I have the following:

Brand new, Garmin GMA 240 Audio Panel.  With rack, connector, pins and manuals.  Ready to install. I bought this unit from a Garmin dealer new in October, it is registered and still has factory warranty, and is still in the factory box, never installed, all paperwork.  Ordered Sept to get my Garmin rebate on the GNC650, delivered in Oct 2016.  This is a good audio panel with aux music inputs and integral 4 place intercom.

I paid $830 for this unit. They are $845 in AC Spruce.  Dealers won't give beans for it on trade in. $600 or the best offer

Like new, but gently used Garmin GTX 327 Transponder for sale.  With rack, connector, and new pins for sub D connector. Just removed from my CH801. This transponder was purchased new in 2009, installed, flown 8 hours, AC was hangered for several years, then I bought the plane in August. It now has ~20 hours total and is being removed for an ADS-B out upgrade.

GTX 327 list for ~$850 on Barnstormers. I am offering it for $650 or best offer.

Like new, but gently used PS Engineering PSM-3000 panel mount stereo intercom for sale.  With connector and new pins for sub D connector. Ready to install

This intercom was purchased new in 2009, installed, flown 8 hours, AC was hangered for several years, then I bought the plane. It now has ~20 hours total and is being removed as part of a panel upgrade that includes an audio panel with intercom 

PSM3000 list for $419 in AC Spruce. I am offering it for $200 or best offer. 


FlightBox dual band ADS-B in for sale. Dual antennas, integral GPS, with power cord. I bought this FlightBox unit new in late spring 2016 when I moved to Wichita because of the incredible air traffic density.  I used it with my IFly 740 and IFly on my phone for traffic and weather.  The unit works just fine but I am upgrading my panel to ADS-B in and Out transponder and no longer need it.

It transmits wirelessly to the IFly and other portable GPS navigators and most aviation apps on IPad and Android.  I love the free weather even if you don't need the traffic call outs. Here is the web page.

This unit can be upgraded with a kit to provide hard wired WAAS GPS serial output and AHRS, for about $150.  You can also add a remote GPS antenna for ~$35 and you can get extension cables for a few $ to add an external ADS-B antenna. I found that even in rural Kansas at ~1000' AGL I had to get way out in the sticks to lose the ADS-B with the stock antennas.


They sell now for $240.  Offering this for $120, or best offer.
