It would be nice to clarify the intent of the prohibition. All the actual rules say is 'Integrated Electronics'. You assume it comes afoul of the rules if it's hooked up to a GPS. I always figured it meant you couldn't have compass and wind data correlating with speed data to give you stuff like true wind direction, VMG data, etc. None of this stuff is particularly expensive nowdays.

While I wouldn't find this overabundance of data too useful on my Express, it would make sense to clearly state what is and isn't allowed.
