One day, all of a sudden, upon powering up, I get an error message on Skyview map. It simply says "No GPS Position Source" (SEE PHOTO). No rhyme or reason. No updates, no changes in wiring, no loose connections, no recent maintenance - nothing - just this error message. Never acquired position throughout entire flight. Autopilot grayed out as well. Alstry to enter map menu with joystick, nothing comes up. What the heck? Any ideas? OK, one confession, I did enter Setup Menu to put AutoPilot into "expert" control mode (from "Simplified", then switched it back.) But I am almost positive I did not screw with any other settings. Does anyone know how to get back my GPS? Tom
Was browsing the GPS conversations and noticed they go back to some time ago, reason why I am seekng advice on a portable GPS nowadays. I am considering installation of one of the following which seem to be quite close to each other in terms of price: -Garmin 795 -Garmin 695 -Avmap EKP V What would the CT community out there recommed? What is the major benefit of the 3D functionality of the 795? Will it replace an artificial horizon for instance? Seen pictures of the Avmap showing a moving map and other pictures showing artificial horizon, does the Avmap do both? And can it do them on the same screen or do you have to juggle between various functionalities? Any thoughts on reliability and ease of use? Many thanks in advance
