I fly with Garmin's 296: at first strapped to my leg, now to be build-in in my KitFox. The Garmin oes everything you could ask for, it's cheap, small, mobile-if-you-want-to, not too new so it won't be too interesting for thieves: when its broke I get me another one!!

I just installed an Aera 500.... using a modified yoke mount. Works great! Just far enough away from the compass so it doesn't affect swing.

I'm looking at the Aera 500. How does the 500 screen look in the bright sunlight?

Tried it yesterday(Aera 500)....beautiful sunny sky, I could see the screen quite well, both flying away from and flying towards the sun.

i had thought of using a gizmo , even bought one .ended up taking it back . decided not to chop up the panel so much . mounted a ram ball to a blank 2 1/4 inst hole . used a short arm with it and works good . i used the stub antenna for a while but eventually mounted the external antenna forward of the inst panel and just aft of the firewall , works good thru the fiberglass cowl

That looks very functionable. And easy to change to another GPS without worrying about the cutout. I like it.

I purchased an ifly700 recently for my Kitfox IV I'm rebuilding. I like the bigger screen and the full screen charts. Putting in a way point dosen't show up as good as teh 2000c. It's still new yet so I can't give a real good review. I will know a lot more about the ifly700. BTW, it costs $69. per year for downloadable updates. NOT FAA approved to eliminate hard charts on board. The updates are very simple with a flash drive. Need to check on the updates for the 2000c.
Haven't had much luck with it.

Lion8,
My understanding is there are no more updates avilable for the 2000c. If you find out updates are available, please let us know.
