Does anyone use the AV map 1V GPS ? how do you find it any bugs?

How about updates for firm ware and Jepon information Cost + any other quirks

Am looking for new GPS and like screen size on latest unit I understand you can

also use with marine charts (sail boats are my other love )

SOME ONE MUST USE IT ?????

PLEASE

I just sold my AvMap IIIc since I got a hard wired panel unit but it was a nice unit, especially the screen and graphics. It is a little big for the knee type holder. No complaints except sometimes the C card connector cable to the mother board contacts need to be cleaned or the airspace graphic stop working.

I have used my EKP IV for about two years, Love it, I now have it yoke mounted on my R44, it does all that I want. I refresh the card three times a year , about $180.00 I also have a Garmin 420 on the bird but never use it as it is badly placed and too small. Hard to see with these old eyes :)

The unit is a bit large for kneepad use and it gets hot. It can easily be fitted with any kind of RAM mount. There is some question about ongoing upgrades but, as is, it's still way ahead of the competition.

 

Good luck and fly safe.

More on the Av Map EKP IV, as far as I know, you can't use marine cards on the IV, only on the III. I would love to use it on my sailboat...........

Rene,

Please bring SG back to ASH ASAP so I can fly it. I need more 44 time.

Sorry Doug, SG is in a nice heated hanger in our back parking lot, I've been flying it whenever the weather co-operates. Had a beautiful flight Saturday to the Cutler area, Down East Maine, landed on frozen lake at a club member's camp, had a great fly-in, 5 fixed wing and SG.

I thought Bob had a 44 by now?? B)

 

Best regards,

 

Rene

 

PS the EKP IV worked flawlessly as usual..... the upgrade problems will be with firmware, not Jepp.

Yeah, Bob told me that you probably fly more than I do. I did a little over 30 hours last month in my 22 which is pretty good considering the weather of late and the fact that I have a full time job. I usually keep it up in a heated hangar up at my place on Northwood lake, but I decided to keep it at GFW for the winter as it's closer to where I live. No 44 yet. Let me know when you're having some more flyins and I'll do my best to make it. Any excuse is fine.

 

Take care,

Doug
