I used to have a 296 and this is far easier to use in flight and on the ground. The only thing I've had with it is I lost GPS signal on the last flig...

First just want to mention I rewrote the post as it was rather long lol, basically summed the question up there. Champguy I appreciate that the responsibility for the decision is mine alone, I'm just curious if people would view doing that as risky or not. Similar to the "do you fly past glidin...
