    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...

    From a resale perspective I’d guess the 796 would be a better choice. When I bought my SQ2 it had a 695 and I flew it from Alaska to Texas like that (although I...

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