Could someone bring me up to speed on what is happening with engine monitoring in these planes. I’ve got a JPI in my 260SE and can’t imagine flying without one anymore. For a few hundred dollars you have a very complete understanding of what is going on under the hood. Like having your own personal Scotty from Star Trek. All I remember from the SR-20’s is that single probe EGT, which in a plane of this sophistication seems archaic. Not just in terms of leaning, but in terms of safety. It would really stink to pull the chute in a nice new SR-22, if having a $600 unit could have told you you’d been having engine trouble the last 40 minutes and should land.
Where are they on all this ARNAV, engine moitoring stuff? Think I might have missed something.
