You guys rock. Left a message.
Discovered that the T22 can use the Garmin 400 and 500 (the one I own) series as the receiver.
So might add a GPS navigation device to the give-away????
Do most of you already have a GPS navigation device installed?

Would you rather have a WAAS receiver or a GPS navigation device?

John, is it the Garmin G500 that you have, or the Aera 500? Portable GPS/navigation devices are great for ADS-B In, but they are not allowed to be used for ADS-B Out, unfortunately.
I have an Aera 660 for navigation (and ADS-B In), but had to get a permanently mounted Garmin 20A (with external antenna) for ADS-B Out.

Ya, that's what I have – bare-bones, but it's small, it works, and doesn't cost a fortune.

This is the GPS antenna I have, also from Garmin: https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/avpages/garminga35waasant.php
Was a bit of a pain mounting that, though, as it does need a decent view of the sky. There may be smaller ones that will also work.

The Trig T22 transponder will need its own bottom-mounted antenna, if you don't already have something similar,
e.g. https://www.aircraftspruce.com/pages/av/antenna_adsb/monopole11-13561.php

Then you'll probably need yet another antenna, such as a GDL39, if you also want ADS-B In. My Aera 660 connects with that via bluetooth, for traffic and weather. If you get Out, you really ought to go for In, too. Seeing nearby traffic (and precipitation) is pretty cool, and makes you feel like you're actually getting something for all your trouble.

That looks to me like it would work, and having it be all Trig is probably a plus, as they'll specify exactly what settings to use, etc. Only thing missing is a transponder antenna (not expensive, and probably best as an individual choice).
I have both a Trig radio and transponder, with the remote panel mounts, and I think they're great.

That is what I was thinking. Thank you for checking it for me!!! (So does that mean I can blame you with complaints?) HahahahahahaHehehehe, I'm like that... Not really. I actually think I'm funny.


I did look for an ADS-B IN solution. There are too many options. The only way for that may be to offer $2,500 towards the in a solution each wants in a separate raffle.

More info re the WAAS "requirement":
'The Notam reads: “It is not necessary for operators of aircraft equipped with the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) (TSO−C145 or TSO−C146) receivers to conduct a preflight availability prediction.”
... all ADS-B units certified for GA aircraft for the 2020 mandate must use a WAAS GPS receiver as a position source. “There are currently zero non-WAAS based ADS-B Out GPS solutions for general aviation aircraft.... For GA, [ADS-B preflighting] is a non-issue.” '
