have and always will be a huge fan of Garmin GPS units. I teach Garmin
training classes and do 1-2-1 training all over the U.S. The 430/530
series in many ways brought ease of use in an affordable unit to general
aviation. I think that the 430/530 series will be in service for many
years. There are also five big reasons I am upgrading to the Avidyne
Hybrid touch allows the user to combine the familiar buttons/knobs
with the new touchscreen technology if they want to. The best parts of
using an iPad, like dragging flight plan lines and pinch/zoom are built
in. Unlike other touchscreen units though, you can use the screen or the
knobs for every function without going through multiple menus to
quickly access what you need.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are built in. The Avidyne IFD440 & 540 has
both built in to every unit. This allows easy connectivity to popular
iPad programs and at the same time lets you use a wireless keyboard!
Yes, you read that right. Forget turning the knobs 100 times to enter a
flight plan. Pull out the wireless keyboard and enter even complex
flight plans much faster and easier.
