I just upgraded a good clean-face GTX-330 to ES status at Garmin. It comes with a 8130, Garmin warranty and the process at the factory is to repair and replace anything required to bring to new status. The unit is currently at the Garmin dealer awaiting shipment. If you need a ADSB out solution or you don't want to be without a transponder while upgrading then this might be the perfect way to get ahead of the deadline.
It comes with a tray and backplate. Connector is available but any dealer will have one if needed. Typically, most solutions just need GPS data from your NAV source to connect, sometimes just one wire. If you want just the unit I can adjust and keep the tray etc. If you want to exchange a non-ES 330 to save downtime please ask me.
There are plenty of ADSB solutions out there and some are less expensive but if you want the workhorse 330ES or have an existing 330 installation then this is a simple cost-effective way to get a unit straight from Garmin. I will pay shipping for COPA members. The price for everything is 2550$ and the unit will be shipped directly from the Garmin dealer.
Here are the pictures prior to the upgrade.
I still have an GTX-330ES that was recently upgraded at Garmin for ADS-B. It has an 8130, Garmin warranty and has been completely tested and run through the upgrade process in Olathe. Garmin replaces everything that is needed to certify so this is basically a new unit operationally. I do have the backplate and tray but if you don't need that I can sell it separately. If you are looking for a 330ES, the Garmin unit is a very durable unit. I can have this delivered to Canada or the US and Europe of interest.
