Adventure Pilot LLC, has introduced the iFly 700, a satellite GPS portable navigation device for general aviation pilots that offers everything from flight planning to en route navigation.
Feature packed with image enhanced hi-resolution sectional maps, highlighted Special Use Airspace, IFR Low En Route charts, Approach and Departure charts and a full Airport Facility Directory in a simple to use 7-inch LCD touch screen, it is priced at $499 plus an annual subscription of $69 for unlimited updates, which includes a suction mount, remote control, AC and DC power adapters and a carrying case.
Current position is shown on actual FAA published sectional charts. The “Rubber Band” route line modification allows the user to touch and drag the route line around an obstacle or airspace. Designed how people think, the touch interface is intuitive and simple to use, according to company officials. A remote control makes turbulence stress free. The $69 annual subscription fee allows for unlimited updates of Sectionals, TFRs, METARs and the Airport Facility Directory. Updates also include Software Updates, Approach/Departure Plates and Airport diagrams.
Walter Boyd, president of Adventure Pilot, recounts, “We wanted a GPS that could evolve in features and capabilities over time, without having to buy a whole new GPS,” so “we have made a device that is expandable and software updates are very easy to apply.”
The company offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee including shipping and handling charges.
