Q: Will it interface with a Stec-30 Autopilot? Will it interface with a Garmin GTN 650?

Per Aspen, the E5 will integrate with both the Stec-30 and the GTN 650.

Q: What do you mean by top or bottom mount on the Aspen Evolution E5?

When you install the RSM (Remote Sensor Module - Magnetometer), you have the option during time of order to mount externally on the top or bottom of the aircraft.

Q: What GPS input options for the Aspen Evolution E5 are there if a panel mounted source is not available?

Per the manufacturer, an IFR approved panel mounted GPS is needed. IFR GPS does not need to be WAAS.

Q: Will a kln-94 and/or a GX 65 appropriate GPS feeds for the Aspen E5?

Yes, an IFR approved panel mounted GPS (does not have to be WAAS)

Q: Does this Aspen E5 EFIS instrument have to be installed by a dealer in certified aircraft?

The E5 does not have to be installed by a dealer but does have to be installed by a A&P when being installed in a certified aircraft.

Q: Will my Garmin GTX 335 transponder with internal GPS, interface with the E5 to provide the GPS source?

No, as the GPS transponder is for ADS-B out, where Aspen requires an IFR panel mounted GPS source

Q: Can the WAAS GPS source for this Aspen E5 be from a LYNX transponder?

No. Per the manufacturer you will require an IFR GPS source such as a GNS430W or a GTN 650, etc.

Q: What does it mean by with or without ACU?

The ACU is an Analog Converter unit. This integrates the Aspen E5 older analog systems.
