Global positioning systems (GPS) have revolutionized navigation for aviators across the globe. With an airplane GPS navigation receiver, a pilot can quickly and accurately determine his or her location relative to the ground. In addition to providing extremely accurate guidance, modern aviation GPS receivers offer a variety of useful options.
In the past, airplane GPS receivers only provided basic navigational functions for a pilot. Many early GPS adopters could only use receivers for assistance with direction, distance, time en route and heading.
Modern GPS receivers offer real-time air traffic information, weather reports, colored terrain mapping, airport directory information and much more. Some high-end GPS receivers even provide turn-by-turn navigation assistance when taxiing an aircraft on the ground.
Pilot Mall offers a variety of high-end Garmin and AvMap GPS receivers for VFR flight. Since these units are portable, they can be a great choice for VFR pilots who rent aircraft or share an aircraft with other pilots. In addition, Pilot Mall offers Bluetooth GPS receivers for use with iPad tablets, iPhones and other Bluetooth-enabled portable electronic devices.
