My cousin sent me this site. http://www.airventure.org/
He is a small plane pilot and said he upgraded his handheld gps on here.
I got to looking at some of the iteresting info on the site and thought I would share. Pilots aren't the only ones interested in having fun!
I saw a update for a Lexus, ver.2006 @ $299.00, but nothing pertaining to updates for the type of GPS we use, unless I overlooked it.
ACR introduces GPS personal locator
ACR Electronics Inc. has introduced the MicroFix, a one-button activated, emergency signaling device for aviators and outdoors enthusiasts available at EAA AirVenture. The FCC-approved MicroFix is 35 percent smaller and 25 percent lighter than its predecessor, the ACR AeroFix.
The suggested MSRP for the MicroFix is $750. The AeroFix 406 GPS I, which provides an interface cable connection capability to a GPS, and the AeroFix 406 GPS I/O, which provides both an interface cable connection to a GPS plus an internal GPS engine to acquire and transmit coordinates, are also available at AirVenture.
Weighing in at just 10 ounces (285 g), the MicroFix is easily carried in a pack or pocket and is small enough to be worn on a flight jacket or belt by aviators, the company says. A lanyard and clip provide functionality and allow for multiple mounting options.
The demonstration we viewed used a Garmin GDL-90 ADS-B universal access transceiver, currently retailing at $7,995, working through a run-of-the mill GPS navigator and driving a relatively common moving map display, the now-discontinued Garmin MX-20. Using the MX-20, passengers aboard the FAA jet could view our position, nearby traffic participating in ADS-B, graphical weather information (NEXRAD-based radar), and other operational data.
I have been to the EAA event for the last 20 years even though I am not a pilot. It is a great event and has much to offer anyone even non-pilots.
Thanks Cherylmass Interesting Site
