  1. *shrug* I use this too. Working on completing my PPL but for now, if I have a problem I'll have an easier time explaining to the FAA that I used their elevation on their chart plus 2,000 instead of 2,000 ft straight down.
  2. You also have Foreflight or the Garmin app, which in your scenario I will be using. Depending with model of iPad you have and which ADS-B you have, will give you ground speed and GPS altitude at the very least and hopefully attitude. Not directly answering your question but just thinking through it.
  3. Do you fly with Foreflight as well? If you do, I'd connect to your ADS-B with it and see if it's showing you the weather any better. If it is, then it might be your Garmin. XM weather is good but there's still the 15 minute delay, so I wouldn't use it to thread the needle or anything plus it's super expensive for what it provides over ADS-B but that's just me.
  4. My Garmin round puck has a little "XM" written below it. Make sure it doesn't say that.
  5. Sorry that happened to you. You could always be nonchalant and say "it's only a delta, chill!" Just kidding of course. This is the bluetooth adapter I bought, pair your adapter to the iPad, make sure you turn foreflight on before flying and you should be good to go. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B013QJ0W8Q/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_-gu1DbQC3A5CX FWIW, I flew my checkride with my iPad and my iPhone on because that's how I normally fly and it's my backup sectional/GPS. During the diversion part of the checkride I just typed in the name of the airport, it gave me a heading. Also, if you have a Garmin 696/796, it gives you a million warnings for airspace, make sure they're turned on.
  6. Here's the manual for it... I think page 182. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/415573/Garmin-Gpsmap-696.html?page=198#manual
  7. Here's the footwell of the 06 SW. Sorry been under the weather both physically and flying. Better now. http://imgur.com/a/KOVOYTQ
  8. This is really cool. I don’t have the equipment to do metal work though. If anyone can make an extra one, let me know what you think is a fair price. I really appreciate it.
  9. No problem, the other thing, if it's sandy where you are, the sand will get caught between the cover and the plane and essentially sand your paint away.
  10. Check with the FBO or the major international airport if you have one. I keep mine at the FBO, next to the $50 million jet. It's so small, they just fit it in. It feels awesome to call them up and tell them "pull out my plane and fill 'er up please." $190 a month. There international airport is $120 a month for a T, but you have to go through all these classes which I haven't found time to do.
