I am looking to replace the ARC radios that are in my plane with a GPs unit. Can’t afford a new one

What sort of budget do you have?  What capabilities do you need?

look for a used GNS-430W. pretty good deals out there now, just be sure it is WAAS (WAAS position source required for ADS-B) should run about $5k or less on ebay. installation will be extra (depends on what situation it is being installed in).

you’ll pay more if you buy it from an avionics dealer. just be sure that any used one comes with an 8130 (faa doc that says “tech evaluations done, ready to return to service”) and mounting tray.  many of these have recently been removed during ADS-B upgrades where owner decided to do more than just the transponder upgrade.
