    RansMail free and 149 GPS mapping device ?

    I've only just discovered this forum after years on BMAA & PFA/LAA ones. I was looking for anyone with hands on exerience of the new NATS/Airbox AWARE gps. Feed-back would be appreciated as it looks to be in budget for the basic model at 149 delivered.
    This note really set out to offer RansMail a monthly free amateur e-mailed news letter for Rans S4 & 5 afficionados, but stuff on flex and other lif=ght two seat a/c as well.

    Mike,
    I am hopefully getting a Airbox Aware on 'Appro' and will certainly tell you my findings.

    Will you be getting the full kit that does flight planning as well? I think I read that it's available for a small extra cost.
    If it ain't broke, I ain't used it.

    Hi Mike, welcome to the forum.

    If you want a cheap sat nav. You wouldn't got wrong reading the article that is at the top of the home page of this site by Rick Moss. It explains how to add CAA charts to a cheap sat nav that you can buy off e-bay for about 60 quid delivered. I know, I've followed the instructions, got one and use it.... brilliant.
    Happy Safe Flying

    Andy,

    How do you find it, or is it too soon ?
    And is it the basic model, if so is it useful or a bind looking at map and screen together ?

    I don't really think 149 is that amazing in terms of value.
    I've run MM on a PDA for some time and am about to use a 7" touch screen with MM that stands me at less than 149 and has the ability to plan routes and synch with the MM software on my laptop.

    One reason I like using the MM CAA charts is that it gives excellent awareness of your position in relation to restricted airspace because you can see those previously invisible lines in the sky I don't need the computer to warn me, I just fly accurately with the benefit of the moving map.

    I also can't abide that woman on TomTom "Turn around where possible" Aaargh! Volume OFF

    Hi Peter,
