Would be interested in hearing how other members are planning to meet the FAA requirements in 2020

Those of us with the Dynon SkyView system will (or have) replace the original GPS with a compliant unit for about $500, and we're done!

For now if you not live in a place where mode c is required, then there is no need.  However it does limit your travels in the future.  The other day I saw a red wing tip clearance light that is a nav light and ADS-B out and is suppose to be legal for when the time comes.  $1900.  By 2020, they should began to be price at about a dime a dozen.  Just going to wait it out. It gets cheaper by the day.

I want to use the ATC system as fully possible, means everything accept Class A. I have a certified L13 Vivat, which means experimental options are not available  to me. I currently have a KT76A transponder and so am particular interested in solutions that work with it. The Skybeacon by uAioni is a very interesting possibility, especially as it might be available for certified aircraft early in 2018. The Skybeacon is a retro fit system that replaces the port navigation light

I installed an NGT 9000 Lynx transponder in May 2016 in my Diamond HK 36 TTC. After installation problems caused by being the avionics shop's first install and, likely, the first motorglider they'd ever seen, I have been very happy with the box.

Being on the fringes of the LA airspace, I feel safer with better situational awareness.  I use it for TFRs and weather infrequently.

Got mine factory installed when I ordered my Sinus Dec 2015 with Dynon avionics.  It is really nice in busy airspace to be able to see, on screen, where other ADSB-equipped aircraft are.  Hope I don't let down on AIRUSA while he's hidden in that big blind spot under the nose.  How much is your life worth?
