    Not sure if there’s a thread yet.

    Garmin introduced PFDs and MFDs, the GI 275 line, that fit in a 3.125” round cutout.

    Does that seem kinda small for PFD or MFD?

    That seems very small for PFD or mfd, but better small than not at all.

    I wish someone would come out with an electronic turn and bank - meaning no gyro/noise.

    I think most would just replace the old with a new attitude indictor, after all FAA policy recognizes replacing a turn coordinator with an attitude indicator as a minor alteration following that memo. I would drop a TSO electronic attitude indicator in to replace the TB/TC in a heartbeat. Unfortunately several popular autopilots make that impractical.

    You mean solid state?

    yep. My G-5 has one on the AI, but can only be used as a back up, not primary.
