I have and always will be a huge fan of Garmin GPS units. I teach Garmin training classes and do 1-2-1 training all over the U.S. The 430/530 series in many ways brought ease of use in an affordable unit to general aviation. I think that the 430/530 series will be in service for many years. There are also five big reasons I am upgrading to the Avidyne IFD440.

Hybrid touch allows the user to combine the familiar buttons/knobs with the new touchscreen technology if they want to. The best parts of using an iPad, like dragging flight plan lines and pinch/zoom are built in. Unlike other touchscreen units though, you can use the screen or the knobs for every function without going through multiple menus to quickly access what you need.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are built in. The Avidyne IFD440 & 540 has both built in to every unit. This allows easy connectivity to popular iPad programs and at the same time lets you use a wireless keyboard! Yes, you read that right. Forget turning the knobs 100 times to enter a flight plan. Pull out the wireless keyboard and enter even complex flight plans much faster and easier.
