A great backup nav device

  • Summary: I use this in my helicopter for backup nav. Actually saved us once over the ocean when we had a navigation error. Almost ran out of gas, but this little guy saved the day.

  • Summary: I was somewhat disapointed The last gps I bought was a pilot 3 and that was years and years ago and I don"t see to much improvement except the weather and music that is way overpriced like over $600 the first year. But it works great.

Works great, but expensive

Mike S., Amazon
23 May 2012
  • Summary: The Aera 560 works great and has lots of useful features that are pretty easy to access with the touch screen. The screen brightness is absolutely great. Much easier to see than my ipad and iphone in the plane (but nowhere near as useful as the ipad with foreflight) I bought the Aera 560 primarily for the XM weather. It's crazy not to fly without it if it's available at this price.

  • Summary: I'll update the status down the road, but right now it's 5 stars... The only thing I don't like is the high price and the cost for XM weather... but if you want a hi-res all-in-one, small form factor unit, this is it... Does EVERYTHING. See other non-Amazon reviews, as you'll see a similar story. I have used many Garmins and others over 30 years of military and non-military flying, and now working with GPS and doing the astrophysics of aligning GPS...

Even Garmin doesn't think this will work a year from now

The Sad Truth, Amazon
9 February 2012
  • Summary: I contacted Garmin to find out which of their new GPS units would continue to work even after LightSquared starts broadcasting broadband transmissions like they are getting ready to do right now, and Garmin customer service didn't have enough confidence in any of their currently manufactured GPS units to pomise me they would work a year from now.
