777 FMC are not standalone items. The FMC is powered by one of the boxs in the AIMS cabinets. This box has multiple functions apart from FMC management. I think Honeywell produle the modules in the AIMS cabinets. I probably haven't explained this very well, but it's unlike other aircraft eg. 767 which have a dedicated FMC box in the racks.

Half the BA RJ100's have GNS-X which is old and basic and the two units don't talk to each other unless "crossfilled" which I think is a bit wrong.

The newer RJ100's have a Honeywell GNLU which is very good, a proper FMS, although we can't use most of its functions! But it flys awaresome holds, anticipates turns etc.
