The new radio is a slightly different size and requires the mounting screws be redrilled. I had room at the original location so just redrilled the mounting screws.
On the subject of sidetone we had the same issue. It was very muted and hard to hear. For some reason when you install the new radio the sidetone volume goes to the lowest setting. Go into the Dynon setup menu and reset the sidetone to a higher level and your problem will be fixed.

Just for clarity, when the different size radio is mentioned, are you talking about the transceiver unit or the panel mounted controller? The Dynon photos look like the panel unit is the same. Since my transceiver is mounted the Av tray the size/shape difference doesn't matter. Thanks-

Transceiver unit. The Comm panel is unchanged.

Yes, just the transceiver unit. I have a new one on it's way from Dynon and will report back on my installation.

What was the cost for the upgrade?

Default Replacement completed.

I received the new unit today and installed it.

Here's what is in the box.


I had to drill 3 holes for new screw locations.


The adapaters made this very simple. The hardest part was just figuring out where to mount it. My old unit was mounted horizontally on the forward side of the subpanel. The new unit fits vertically near the same location. The antenna coax uses a BNC to TNC adapter, and the connector adapter cable supplied hooked up with no problems.



I did a quick radio check then went flying and had no issues!
