    How much is the subscription for the weather feature?

    I was amazed how useful it was on long cross country flights, like when we went to Oshkosh this year. While everyone in the air was asking ATC for vectors to get them out or around a nasty weather system in Kansas, we simply dodged around the big green blob on the moving map display and never even got wet.

    right now the thing that bothers me about the unit is that it doesn't keep the view settings when you turn the unit off. other then that, it works well.
