Half of GPS users surveyed said they have difficulty getting a GPS to do what they want. Using flight plans and finding infrequently used pages were the most common issues. Author Max Trescott has launched “Max Trescott GPS Guides” for the iPhone. In partnership with Hilton Software, the initial release includes applications for the Garmin GPSMAP 296, 396, 495, 496, 695 and 696 GPSs. “We are happy to extend our market-leading position on the iPhone by partnering with Glass Cockpit Publishing to create GPS Guides for the iPhone. The new GPS Guides offer unprecedented ease of use and eliminate fumbling through checklists.” said Dr. Hilton Goldstein, CEO of Hilton Software LLC.
Each page has detailed explanations and GPS screen shots, not just a list of steps. Tips are also included offering suggestions on how best to use the GPS. Plus you’ll always have the most current information, since you can download application updates after new GPS features are introduced. Detailed explanations on accessing weather information are included for all XM Weather enabled GPSs.
Max Trescott is the 2008 National Certificated Flight Instructor of the Year. He is the author of the newly released Max Trescott’s GPS and WAAS Instrument Flying Handbook and Max Trescott’s G1000 Glass Cockpit Handbook with WAAS.
The guides are priced at $29.95 from the iTunes App Store. Search for “Max Trescott” for a complete list of applications.
