Reviews around customer service (5.00 of 5)

  • 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

Reviews around garmin win (5.00 of 5)

  • Very nice, but Garmin wins on the (1) simple, robust ease of use, (2) dedication to the mission of flying, (3) easy and intuitive use (especially if you have or had Garmins before), (4) waypoint/POI, software, mapping and other compatibility with about any other Garmin, (5) 100% WAAS, while capable of other inputs like XM, ADS-B, and VHF traffic

  • I chose XM weather since ADS-B (which offers FREE weather radar!) isn't available all over the country

Reviews around radar (5.00 of 5)

  • I chose XM weather since ADS-B (which offers FREE weather radar!) isn't available all over the country
  • Foreflight has the same radar and lighting strike capabilities (with the delay), but it works primarily on the ground

Reviews around gps (5.00 of 5)

  • A nice voice calling out 500 feet on final is fun, but there are no other altitude callouts (which I'd like, but the GPS is probably not accurate enough to really tell you where the ground is - it doesn't have RAIM like an IFR WAAS

Reviews around garmins (5.00 of 5)

  • 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... and from my experience, I have not seen a better portable unit (I like it even better than the newer Aeras)

  • Since GPS is here to stay, it'd be about the best deal for your money; if you want to make it look more permanent, Airgizmos has a cute little panel dock, now for the Aera 5xx series
