I just upgraded to echoUAT and took out my Stratux box and Dual XGPS150 Bluetooth GPS. How about you pay shipping and I send them to you?

Russki,
I will be there soon, but not until you stop by my place for the bbq first! Mikey and others will be spending the night here also so we could have another full house like we have done in the old days! Looking forward to seeing you and getting the full briefing!

All,
I am going to try the Dual XGPS reciever and Stratux as you have suggested (Chris, thank you for you super generous offer!). I really wasn't looking for traffic but it would be interesting. I already have XM so traffic is all that the Stratux would do. (KRW, thank you for your offer also!)

Dean,
I am going to explore the Android tablet route. Aluminum, I like how you refer to the iOS as a "walled garden". So accurate! I'm not afraid of spending money on a solution. Lord knows this IFR stuff costs some serious lead!

Thermos and Sam, looks like I will be doing some exploring with regard to all these new fangled gadgets! I will try the other brands after my trip to Alaska, as I have already invested for a years subscription to Garmin. I thought that I would like it, but I now see that there are other things out there that are better such as iFly, Foreflight and someone else just mentioned the FlyQ EFB from AOPA yesterday.

Thank you all for your input!

CJ

A bit late to need, but I use a non-cellular iPad mini running GarminPilot as my EFB for about 4 years now. I too have a G3X (non-touch) with a GTN in my panel. I use a Garmin GDL 39 as my GPS/ADS-B in source, but that’s not important. The point is that the iPad paired to suitable external data source works just fine.

Can the GDL39 be powered from a USB type cord? The website doesn’t say.

No. Check out the GDL 39 User's Guide for power options:
