Garmin 60csx

If I am flying from a field and returning to the same field I use the 'man overboard, setting before I take off and then the compass becomes a direction indicator. I have speed, altitude, time elapsed, distance to destination, time set, that way I always know how much fuel I am using and if I can get back to the field (and what direction it is in).

If I am doing x/country I just set it to the destination reference.

I fly a PAP1250 and I allow 1 hour flying for 5 litres of fuel which gives me a decent reserve.

If you reset the Garmin and set the 'man overboard' setting (hold down the 'find button for a couple of seconds) you will always know where the field is, in which direction and how far away, you can then use your ground speed to work out how long it will take to get back.

Not sure about the others but the 60csx does everything that I want it to and I use it with memory-map so I can put routes on for XC flights or download tracks at the end of the day.

Will be at the Essex fly in if you want to have a play, are you going?

regards
