Got this from Aeromech yesterday:

Hi Sean,
 
Good to hear from you. We are in the process of amending our STC to include the G600 TXi system, this is an active project of ours. Iíll check with our program manager about the completion date and will get back to you as soon as I can.


This is great news.

Your timing is good. We have spent quite a bit of time with them trying to get this off the ground.  I believe it will happen in a few months.  TXI and 3100 AP are likely going to be required unless you have an APS 65 and Iím pushing for that to be included. We have multiple full panels going on and 8 3100ís on order so please let me know how we can help you. Iíve also volunteered my plane for EIDS which I believe should be forthcoming. We can make it work in about 2 weeks but there are other forces at play.  But thereís really no reason it canít be available this year.  Please send me an email with your support and Iíll keep Garmin and associated parties aware of the interest on both of the above bruce@naplesjetcenter.com

Bruce, is it just going to be the TXi or will the legacy G600 be included as well?

Don, in the interest of not making the engineerís heads explode, I would expect TXi only.  Every different configuration is a bunch of work so, while my opinion is preliminary, I believe new equipment is the way to go. We completed the first legacy G600 install in a Commander 16 years ago. Like the G1000, I doubt itís worth the effort to include unless itís easy to engineer.

It is finally happening.

Received the new IICA from Aeromech. Waiting on amendment pricing.

Incidentally, those all appear to be TXi part numbers, which is as expected.

It will be interesting to find out. I would guess with your configuration, it won't be too bad at all. Probably just the enablement, which of course will seem crazy expensive for what is effectively a license, but much cheaper than redoing your entire panel.

Does that STC require dual 600TXis? It reads like it does?
