Poorly Designed GPS

Bill Hansen, Amazon
15 November 2013
  • Summary: I've had this for over 6 months and still find it difficult to use. It's not intuitive and seems designed by someone with little aviation background ie, must exit the map screen and press several buttons to make a waypoint and then fly to it.

Best choice on its price range but not perfect

Pedro Paiva, Amazon
11 November 2013
  • Summary: I have two of these units. They are the best you can get at the 700 usd price range but they are not perfect. I've had one of my units going off during the flight a couple of times so If you can afford, get two as they can become inoperative during flight. I don't like the touchscreen very much.

Nice inexpensive Aviation GPS

Timothy Lam, Amazon
2 November 2013
  • Summary: The adjustable back lighting is great. One of the brightest displays seen in full sun. Found it to be very easy and intuitive to use. Although there were some changes buried deep withing that were a surprise. Love the yoke mount and car mounts. Both worked great for me. Love the single power cord.

Great GPS, limited by it's screen

Rob Prior, Amazon
30 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought one of these when they were brand new, and absolutely loved it. Of course, I bought it in December, and used it for the most part under a cloud cover until Spring, when I found the achilles heel of this GPS... Daylight.
