Garmin 560

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used these for utility type flying. Just wondering if the touch screen holds up (use with gloves, rain etc.) and how the unit is all around for ruggedness and reliability. I have heard that the screen is way harder to see then the 496. Any complaints or praises from people in a tough working environment. Any comparisons to the 396 or 496.

I have the 510 (dont need the taxi diagrams and AFD) that I fly with in the Gulf, and love it. I went from the 296 to it, and have thoroughly enjoyed it. fine to read for me in the sunlight, although I dont fly with gloves, so couldn't tell you how it will do with them. takes a little getting used to coming from the 296, but worth the switch I think.
