• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

I finally realised that my Garmin 196 was starting to look decidedly antique what with all the new high res colour touchscreen moving map stuff out there. I put it on auction, and got a reasonable price.

So I am back in the market for a new colour GPS - preferably touch screen, preferably high-res, preferably bright-as, and most definitely with a Pacific Map!

True to character, and after my eye-water cown import fees ;-) I've been looking for a cheapie on the market... three have presented themselves - the AnywhereMap ATC, Lowrance 2000c and the Bendix AV80R.

These all all around the $700 mark, and roughly equivalent.

Anyone have any working experience with any of them? The Bendix is currently #1 as it clearly has support for the Pacific area.
