Guys,

I have a meeting tomorrow (short notice I know) with the MD from Airbox.

So in a nice simple set of bullet points,

What do YOU want from a nav aid? You could help to form the product!!!

SW :D

Looking at some of the replies its obvious you have not used it, it could not be any simpler (or better than xc soar).

Please have a look at it first, its good now so could be awesome :roll: with a few tweaks.

I was going to buy one but held off as I wanted to see what came of Simons meeting.

Meeting @ 15:00

Something I already know is that he has a large number of re-con units where people have upgraded over the years.....

I am going to try and get my hands on those with the 50k map replaced with the 25k.

He was not that happy about letting the Recon ones go out... (the new product is so much better)

I will keep chipping away at him though :-)

This item WILL have the free 1:500 charts replaced with the 1:250 that we are more likely to be using.

It comes with that airspace FREE and will update for a year!

It's an amazing bit of kit and a reasonable price ( when you consider the cost of digital mapping from Memory Map without the updates!! )

Battery life?

You might suggest recon units could be sold to new pilots through flying schools and training schemes.

This is broadly similar to what the publishers of CAD software do, allowing 'student' licenses to circulate so plenty of people become familiar with their product and it becomes the natural choice when they upgrade.

Screen is daylight readable and lasts around 90 mins at normal brightness.

You can increase or reduce this further by making it brighter or darker.

A power monkey or similar takes this up to 5 hours if needed.

SW :D
