Check out this above!!
First Sporty's had an ADB gadget (Stratus) for $800 I purchased - then two months later Garmin comes out with the GDL-39 -- I whined and fussed until Sportys let me exchange the first with the second. I wanted the GDL-39 since it added Traffic Data.
Well now this one above has all that plus the attitude and horizon data (AHRS) ! So from what I can see with my Iphone and an App I purchased called "IHUD Remote" I would basically have a glass cockpit! Looks like the cost is about $1,100.
I think my head is going to explode from all this technology! It's impossible to keep up with it all! Add synthetic vision with a Garmin portable GPS like the Aera 796 which by the way is coming out with Blue tooth shortly! OMG!!! Amazing stuff!
Mike we need an App which pops up every 20 seconds and reminds pilots to look out the window!!!
The coolest thing to me about having the Garmin GDL-39 was that it wirelessly made my Iphone a serious GPS unit!! Using Garmins Pilot App. Weather is an added bonus. Traffic I have yet to see that work?
