Product Review:
Cessna 310 Delorme Inreach vs. Spot Connect

Mike describes his experiences with both the Delorme InReach and Spot Connect products. He had difficulty with the bluetooth interface on the Spot product, so he switched to the Delorme Inreach. It has a better interface, allows 2-way text and is more reliable.

FEATURED SITE:

Survival Beyond the Forced Landing Air Safety Foundation
Mike contributed an article to the Air Safety Foundation's survival guide. Not every forced landing results in fatalities or even injuries, but a little knowledge on what to do in a survival situation can go a long way. The AOPA Air Safety Institute discusses survival kit essentials and what actions you can take to help reduce the time it takes to get found.

For more information, be sure to also download Survive: Beyond the Forced Landing PDF article.

Mountain Flying Bible We also highly recommend the Mountain Flying Bible by Sparky Imeson.

PRODUCT REVIEW:

Garmin D2 Watch Garmin D2 Pilot Watch
This watch is really 3 functions: a pilot watch; a GPS receiver, and an outdoor/hiking watch. As a pilot watch, it's really good with a plethora of stats, plenty of room for flight plans, and much more. As a general GPS receiver, it's not so special. It has Bluetooth connectivity, but it's only used for transferring flight plans from the Garmin iPad app to the watch. It does not actively communicate during flight.

It shows lat/lon, and a very basic moving map, but that's about it for general GPS functions. Stew also noticed that the GPS derived altitude was much different than panel mounted GPS or barometric altimeters.

The hiking mode has a ton of great features for runners, geocachers, etc. It also has some features that allow you to control the Garmin action cam from the D2 watch.
