Ever find yourself in the cockpit punching GPS buttons multiple times to get it to do what you want? A recent GPS survey found that more than half of readers have difficulty some of the time getting a GPS to do what they want. Max Trescott wrote the one book that tells pilots what they need to know to safely fly using a modern GPS receiver.
Most books treat GPS as a subtopic and don’t tell everything you need to know about using GPS. But this Max Trescott’s GPS and WAAS Instrument Flying Handbook recognizes... that GPS is at the center of modern cockpits and not just add-on equipment. If you fly VFR or IFR with a panel-mounted GPS, you’re bound to learn something you didn’t know from the latest book about GPS, WAAS, or operating your GPS receiver. It’s a totally new book—NOT a new version of the G1000 book—that tells you what you need to know to safely operate modern GPS systems including detailed, step-by-step instructions for the Bendix/King KLN 94, Garmin GNS 430, 430W, 480, 530, 530W and G900X, G1000 and Perspective glass cockpits.
