Got an email today pimping the new Ipad (wasn't really interested but made the mistake of looking)---first impression was, wow, look at that screen size, then, I looked at the cost ($499 & up). I made my next mistake and looked at the boatload of navigation apps, astounding! Incredible, and alot of those apps are free, several types of GPS, AOPA airport directory, even a freaking FREE efis panel, for all practical purposes. Surely these apps are buggy and unreliable, (you get what you pay for, right?).....wonder how long before somebody tries it in the cockpit?
