Vintage Garmingpsmap195 is better than many new portables.

  • Summary: I bought a garmingpsmap195 soon after they were introduced. They were the best handheld available then, and cost about $1200 new. (Much more now with inflation). They still meet the needs on almost all VFR flight, and even have rudimentary Instrument approaches. Great for backup for a $15,000 GPS.The database can be updated for $49.95,on a computer, but can be s royal hassle to do. Repairs at factory not available.

Garmin GPS 195

  • Summary: I have had a Garmin 195 since 1998 and it works great. No problem reading the display back then or today. If you don't need the latest and greatest gadget this is a nice tool to have in the cockpit. Just purchased the latest Navigation update, for North America, on the Garmin website in preparation for PA to CA trip. Downloading it only took about 10 minutes. Plan on keeping this tried and proven GPS for quite some time.

  • Summary: Has all basic functions. It's nothing fancy but works good and is easy to operate. Simulator mode allows for pre-flight training on GPS operation.

Older system, but still relevant and user friendly.

  • Summary: I have really liked this system and think that it is a cheap alternative to some of the other GPS systems available that are really expensive. It has a large and easily readable screen. Backlighting system is the green light type, but is easily visible as well. That is where I disagree with the other reviewer. I have used this GPS for VFR help in many different situations and think it is a great adjunct to your other VFR navigation tools.

Garmin 195 GPS

  • Summary: The screen and back lighting on the Garmin 195 is of poor quality. Guess the older generations are bygones and we all need to move to the new color and bright screens.
