As promised, my review of the TC1000 in a real-life cross-country flight is complete.

It's way too big to post here, but you can find it at:

thanks for the review. an eye-opener for a complete stranger in aviation. just wondering if a plug for 12V car adapter is available in the plane? then you can buy the adapter and forget about the battery concerns.

Depending on the aircraft, there may be a cigarette lighter or an airline-style power outlet. Voltage may be 14 or 28V from this. The good news is that the universal adapter I got will work with all of it.

The bad news is the 182 I flew on the memphis trip had no cabin power at all.

Tim,

I was wondering a couple of things. One how was the readability of the TC100? Second, do you have some special version of JeppView? Mine does not seem to have a facility for plotting your position.

Thanks,

Jerry

Hi Tim,
I use my TC1000 while flying in ultralight (Ikarus C22 or C42).
I use Oziexplorer with road and aviation maps.
Great way to navigate!!!
No cigarette lighter power outlet though, but I have an extra battery.

Hi, great review, even for us non-pilots! Does the 802.11 or Bluetooth affect the airplane or its electronics at all? Do you have to turn them off?
