" A reliable GPS suitable for gliding "

Very good GPS for cross country flights. It is an excellent alternative to the Oudie with a reduced price.

The brightness is stunning, it looks similar or better than the LX9000.  It is perfectly readable regardless of its position.

The GPS signal is excellent, no signal loss and a very accurate position and GPS altitude.

I think that this GPS equipped with an external batterie is suitable for club and competition flying.

For those who want a reliable GPS suitable for gliding, I highly recommend this product.

" Finally an affordable and ready to use GPS ! "

Positive points : 

  • The screen brightness is excellent ! Even in bright sunlight it remains clearly readable
  • Versatile. As it runs on Android, it is possible to choose different kind of navigation app. I kept XC Soar for gliding and I also installed other apps for VFR navigation.
  • A good suction mount. It is 
  • Connectivity : The Gps has Bluetooth and WIFI. it allows to install apps directly from the Google play store and also to connect it to other instruments in the glider. I am able to get baro and flarm infos. I control my LX1600 with the Aquila.
  • The micro SD socket

Negative points : 

  • The battery : I was able to fly 2 hours with the gps but for longer flights you need an external battery

In summary, it is a great, easy to use and affordable GPS. It allows me to save my smartphone.
