This is a tangent to my previous discussion item looking for avionics shop recommendations. I have a KX-155 Nav/Com with display issues and am having a hard time identifying a repair or replacement option. As has been pointed out on many forums Bendix King abandoned this market. As far as I have been able to determine, they do not offer a 14 volt replacement unit. Display repair is difficult to find, as new display units are not being made. Some avionics shops do offer repair, but cost is in the $2K neighborhood - a lot to pay to fix a 35 year old radio.
TKM advertises the MK 155 as a slide in replacement. Currently this unit is non-TSO'd. Also, their website does not offer any way to call them and discuss. Only option is to fill out a form. Filled it out, no reply.
Garmin GNC 225 seems like a nice (but pricey) unit. I do not like that only Com or Nav are displayed, you have to switch between which you want to see.
So, my question is - What are others doing for KX - 155 repair or replace?
Any suggestions or thoughts welcome.
