Resident Top Gun Steven New, normally found training for an Air Transport Pilots Licence in the sunnier climes of Florida, has put the Aware device through its paces in the rather damper climate of a North East England winter!

Having used gliding navigation programs for some years on PDAs and PNAs, I would point out that the suction mounts as shown and supplied are not a good idea if you go high. They can drop off due to the decreasing air pressure, and if re-attached at height, there is a risk of cracking perspex windscreens as you descend. Not a problem though if you only go up to 2/3000 ft.

Good point. Difficult to know what other options are practical if you are renting though?

Did you get a chance to check the accuracy of the altimeter reading? In my experience (microlighting) the height given was often a bit iffy.
