What's NOT to like? I've flown several planes with the SL-30. Like having two radios and navs in one box. SL-40 is just com, but the ability to monitor a second freq in addition to the one you're talking on is a great feature.

Yep. Well, one, anyway.

Like it a lot. It always works, I like the "switch freq." capability, and I really like to be able to listen to two freq.'s at once.

You can get most of this with the cheaper ICOM IC-A200T, or the VAL Avionics tranceiver, but I'm not sure they were available when I bought my SL40. Plus, if you're installing a whole Garmin stack, the SL40 can talk to the rest of the stack and is controllable from the other equipment.

Nothing. There are things I don't use (memory frequencies), but I don't dislike them - it's just that it's just as easy to dial in the freq. that I want as it is to remember which memory I stored stuff in.
