    Alex,

    Garmin Pilot is an excellent app. There used to be (and might still be) some features of the app that were only available on an Apple iDevice (not available on the Droid operating system) so...

    If you can do 700 foot strips at 8000 ft da, 500 foot strips down low will be easy peasy.
