You want to be a little bit careful about buying a no-name or an off brand device thinking you will run the iFly software on it. My first Android was purchased 3 years ago specifically for that purpose. When I loaded the iFly software on it, I found that the screen mapping was totally hosed and unusable. iFly said that if there were a bunch of them out there and I could send them one to test with, they would make an attempt to patch their software to deal with the display driver for the unit, but for a cheap one off, I'd do better to buy a used name brand unit as you are guaranteed their software will work on a name brand unit.

I've been wanting to move to a larger screen for wider area coverage, especially now that I have in flight weather and traffic with the ADS-B Stratux-flightbox that I purchased at Oshkosh on their $150 special. Now they also have a $20 add on to a VFR subscription that allows you to run their software on 4 devices. I checked around and found a 10.1 inch Android tablet at Best Buy for $69. (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/insignia-10-1-tablet-32gb/5157700.p?skuId=5157700It must have been on sale. It is now $99) It's a bit large for the KR cockpit but I like it so well I'll make it work. It is quite bright in all but direct sunlight. It has built in WIFI / GPS / Bluetooth so it is wireless between the ADS-B and the tablet. Anyone looking for a "cheap" naviation setup, a cheap Android tablet, an $89 subscription, and a $150 dual band ADS-B kit will put you in the pilot seat. IFLY is selling the dual band ADS-B unit fully assembled and ready to plug and play for $200. You could have a backup using your smart phone for no extra cost. I think I'm going to like this setup as well as my fully pneumatic tail wheel. :-) Larry Flesner _______________________________________________ Search the KRnet Archives at https://firstname.lastname@example.org/.
