Does anyone have expearance with the iFLY 720 GPS? I was looking also at the Garmin 500. The only way I can justify the cost is the ability of these two to be used in the plane and car.

I like both these units but a little to big for my little single seater. Both these units, I do believe, work in your car.

I am looking for a good used GPS one with a small screen. Something that would fit on my knee board, something around 100 bucks. Give or take a little.

I just bought a Garmin 450 World GPS thinking it had voice turn by turn, but it dosen't and it is a little small for me to see. Other than opening the box and playing with it on my desk it is brand new, and i would take $200 for it. 7.

The screen is big enough for my no-longer-as-good-as-they-were squintees, the functionality is great, and I can use the iPad the 99% of the time I'm not flying. The setup also allows for pre-flight planning, calling up the weather from any wifi spot, etc. It's 100% fine for any VFR nav chore, and IFR approach plates, airfield diagrams, etc are included in the Foreflight subscription. 8.
