Garmin claim is their ADS B intellectual property was illegally used to include the popular uAvionix sky beacon product.  Something to consider if you’re considering purchasing one. Link is here

Thanks, Michael, for posting their rebuttal.  Good to hear.  I'd read about the suit last week or so in Aero-News.  As I'm still building, and am quite away from deciding on a panel, I *was* leaning towards a GRT panel with uAvionix ADS-B solution. Hopefully I can continue that direction, but knowing how the legal system works, it may be awhile.

I suppose the question is what happens if Garmin wins? Will sky beacons get switched off? Or will it be something less dramatic? I was planning on buying one in a couple of months to install once I've finished Phase 2 and can leave my 10 mile box. It is the best solution for me with my MGL panel.
