Through the end of the year Avidyne is offering significant Trade-In Value for customers who want to upgrade their old GNS530/430/W or GNS480 units for an Avidyne IFD550, IFD540, or IFD440 with Synthetic Vision and Hybrid Touch. Advertising and other outbound marketing communications are being sent starting next week.

This trade-in program provides an affordable way for legacy GNS owners to move up to a state-of-the-art IFD with Synthetic Vision and Hybrid Touch.

As an example, a customer with a GNS530W can get as much as $8,500 in trade value with the purchase of an IFD550. We also have a generous trade-in offer for the obsolete GNS480 units with trade in value as high as $4,250!

Of course. as dealers you can always choose to keep and resell the used GNS units yourselves, or you can take advantage of the following Trade In Values from Avidyne that can be up to the following amounts*:


 IFD Model  GNS430 GNS430W  GNS530  GNS530W GNS480
