....WELL.... Alrighty then.
I am not going to get into the debate of what is better, and why or why not to use paper or a G1000 or a tablet.
I started this thread to share my findings of several devices and how they worked for me. I thought passing it along might help a pilot or two out there, and I will continue to do so. This is not about what is better, I have had just as many mishaps with paper as I have with a tablet. In the end that is why I have BOTH ready to go anytime during my flight and before I set up for the approach.
PilotBill: This is good. Some guys seem to act like crack addicts the way that they are attached to their GPS systems. The more the GPS does, the worse they are attached.
I do agree. GPS and Glass cockpits are hard to revert from. My mindset is simple - If it is available to you, whether electronic charts, glass cockpit, or gps, why not get it and use it? Take it to the extreme and this is why Gulfstream has EVS, PlaneView, and BBML (for passengers). Aviation offers fabulous technology to get us home safe, make the trip enjoyable, and weather just a tad less intimidating with proper discretion.
It is also the reason why the computer you are typing and reading on right now is not from 1980, and the car you drive most likely has OBD.
The more redundancy you have along with situational awareness makes you, your passengers, and family a whole lot safer.
So now back to the reviews of some chart options that work......
