EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedInexpensive moving map with in-cockpit sectionals debuts at AirVenture
 
Pilots looking for a low-cost, fully functional alternative to high-priced moving map GPS displays may have an answer in the new iFly 700, a sectional chart-based GPS moving map display listing for $499. The iFly 700 features a 7-inch touch-screen display and weighs only 0.8 pounds. A data subscription of $69 to $89 per year keeps all charting current and includes software/feature upgrades every four months.

In addition to sectionals, the iFly 700 includes terminal area charts and can be configured in either north-up or track-up orientation.

The iFly 700 hardware features an external GPS antenna, input for an external power source, a USB connector, an SD/MMC memory card slot, audio-visual in/out ports, a headphone jack, and more.

Other charting features include IFR arrival charts, approach/departure plates, and taxi diagrams. Airport details, including data on private airports, are provided, as is information on temporary flight restrictions.

The iFly 700 has no knobs to twist or mechanical buttons to push. Instead, it uses large, on-screen “virtual” buttons.

Adventure Pilot, the company offering the device, says ADS-B weather and traffic—along with other upgrades—are planned for the future. For more information, visit Adventure Pilot in Exhibit Hangar C, Booth 3053, or online at www.AdventurePilot.com.

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
