Gps Which One Is Best?


Recommended Posts

It's not nearly as fancy as the 196 or 296 but my Garmin 3+ still works great and hasn't let me down yet. Very easy to use as well! I don't think you can buy them anymore though.


One day I'll have to get a loan and get me a 296!

Rainman maybe you should ask for a raise!!!!! :lol: Or at least get to fly JTH or one of the other machines that has one installed already.

Whatever comes in the machine!!!

I totally agree, assuming they are easily workable and serviceable. I've jumped into some machines for 3 weeks and the GPS was hooped the whole time. On fires, that would spell disaster would it not ? As for workability, one might argue that there is a manual for it. Sure, if it's in the A/C! If not you're sometimes left with a 212, or whatever on a fire with a GPS that's harder than a 747 cockpit to figure out that may or may not work.


I love my Garmin 3 plus, it goes wherever my helmet goes, and it's paid for!
