    My club recently got a GTN 650, G5 HSI, G5 PFD, and GTX 345 all installed in our Cherokee 180 for $28,300. We also got a few obsolete odds and ends removed from the panel, as you are doing. Labor was $9,000 of that price. The shop was Flightstar at KCMI.

    We don't have an autopilot, so there wasn't any cost associated with hooking the new stuff up to one of those.

    I was quoted 21.8K. When looking at OP's quote, this seems high at $100/hr

    Purchase- GTN-650, GMA-345, GI-106B CDI w/ Install Kit ($14,219)

    Install Labor for above, plus move existing #1 NAV/COM to B/U #2 NAV/COM, and wire A/C with 4-place stereo/intercom ($6732)

    Misc Parts ($850)

    More fun.....contacted another avionics shop near me. Took him a few weeks to get back to me. Said that a G5 can't be installed as either a HSI or ADI because it can't interface with the KFC-200. I was going to try to explain to him that it can, but decided it would be better off if we avoided them.

    How much was the total for installation only?. Probably making pretty much the same upgrade, good references are very helpful.

    Finally found a shop that actually gave us a quote, knows a little about the avionics, and gave us a reasonable price. The airplane goes under the knife in October.
