    I just got my G5 installed (after my primary AI failed). I'm reading the manual and came across this:
    We might have a few days a year that get into that range, but most of the time we are above that. So I wonder how long my G5 battery will actually last? Or how long before it catches fire?

    Otherwise, I am excited and waiting until I get to fly with it.

    It also says "stored" not while in use...

    If I fly 3 hours a week, then isn’t it stored the rest of the time? In a hot hangar.

    When I hear the word "stored" I think being not in service and stored off of the unit... If it couldn't be in the plane over 68F then there is no way it would pass certification..
