    So, since the aircraft has 2 comms already and a xpdr and adsb, maybe a Garmin gps175 for three grand less than a gnx375? Pull the 295 docking port and put it on a RAM mount on the stbd yoke?

    I've discovered that with a lot VORs going out of service, most instrument approaches now require DME or GPS, even basic VOR approaches. Look it in the new Notes section of an approach plate in the upper LH corner. You may be IFR legal with less, but you will have a hard time finding an approach to fly.

    Is there a publication list of VORs going out of service? I've heard rumors and innuendo, but no hard evidence.

    The only reason one would want to use a VOR instead of GPS, assuming you have a GPS in the plane, is if the GPS system is out of service. Which is the only reason they're keeping the "Minimum Operational Network".
