  • Summary: Most importantly, the unit I bought was exactly if not more that what I anticipated I would receive. It's NOT the newest portable aviation GPS out there but it' was priced right and contains several added safety features not found in others. I am totally satisfied.

  • Summary: I wanted to replace my stolen Garmin 495 with a more affordable unit. The 196 is the only unit still available that would fit my 495/496 accessories. I fly helicopters in Alaska and the Lower 48.

GPS for Aviation

  • Summary: The technology has been around for years but works fine. To upgrade with Garmin, it was difficult. I finally got it done. Since I fly a plane with a glass panel, I use this as backup in case of electrical failure with the on-board equipment.

  • Summary: Extremely reliable and completely trouble free. I have about 400 hours on my Garmin 196 over 11 years. Extremely cold temperatures down to -30F at altitude where I'm not sure I'd want to rely on a touch screen. It does everything I need it to do and never a hiccup in 10 years.
