I loved this GPS when it first came out. I was/am a firm believer in GPS technology. I flew with a very good friend, who was a F-16 pilot god (who flew my Cozy III better than me) who purchased this. He said the Garmin 195 had better capabilities than his Falcon.
I was a young Army reserve officer flying (not a military pilot) with Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) pilot in command, and he was so engrossed with this GPS (I borrowed it for a two week reserve tour) that he just said go ahead, land the Pilatus Porter ( a tailwheel - my first) aircraft all by yourself
Either he was impressed with my Private Pilot skills, or he was engrossed in learning how to use this GPS. Me thinks he was impressed with this unit.
This is an awesome backup GPS!!! Tim
