    Could this be true? A friend of mine has a 2007 Diamond DA40 with a G1000. It is NOT WAAS or ADSB capable.

    He was quoted $30k to add Waas and another $10k for ADSB-Out

    Does he have other options they are not telling him about?
    Makes me appreciate my mix of steam gauges and a Garmin stack.

    After the ohhh ahh wore off, the G1000 isn't that impressive, outside of from a expensive and heavy position

    There was a small set of G1000's that were not WAAS capable. I have had two that were...the ADSB debacle for them is about the same as it is in my PA46...jacked up.

    Mine was also an 07...but from Cessna.

    I've purchased entire airplanes that cost less than that. :blueplane:

    But they weren't WAAS or ADS-B compliant either.;)
