Which package should I get if I want to stick with Foreflight Premium $199 ? Take the Bundle $499, US Lite PilotPak $559? Or what about Jepp NavData for $480? What do you have? This crap is quite expensive.
While I’ll agree with you that Garmin updates are unnecessarily difficult and ludicrous expensive, but that is the way it is until the kid that created Stratux focuses his energy on databases.CAF and CF, etc are having a real problem attracting young members. The youngsters seem to like staring at screens and commanding computers to do tasks.
I have an idea.
The old rich guys at CAF, CF, etc, should fund OPEN Aviation Software Initiatives. Attract the youngsters AND create some J.
We really, really need to stop allowing private entities to charge us large sums for ripping off our public data and transmogrifying it into proprietary file formats.
If you don’t want to keep the obstacle and terrain up to date, why did you bother putting in a $8000 box that probably cost at least that much again to install? Why not rock a KX175? Ya gotta pay to play.Garmin annual NavData only subcription is $299 for 13 updates. I might just go that route. If I'm paying $199 for ForeFlight Premium (I have the $99 version now) then I don't need the "Obstacles, SafeTaxi, and Terrain 9 Arc Second" databases. Anyone concur?
