Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Despite the wealth of information the increasingly capable Garmin series of GPS units deliver to pilots around the world, they all share one major drawback. The time it takes to learn and understand the sequence of twists, pushes and turns of buttons and knobs to make the units perform. A recent survey said pilots find updating flight plans and locating infrequently used pages a top GPS annoyance. But no more thanks to Max Trescott’s specially designed new Garmin 430 Guides for the iPhone and soon for the iPad and Google Android.
Better than a Paper Checklist Each page in the Max Trescott GPS Guides has detailed explanations and GPS screen shots, as well as suggestions on how best to use the GPS. Plus you’ll always have the most current information, since application updates offer new GPS features as they’re introduced. Best of all, you can cut down on the bulk in your flight bag by grabbing all of the Guides without adding an ounce! Detailed explanations on accessing weather information are also included for all XM Weather enabled GPSs.
Not surprisingly, GPS guru Max Trescott was selected one of six finalists in a PRWeb-sponsored contest (Take a look here) to see who can generate the most press-release page views about the guides using Twitter and Facebook. Max Trescott thinks visitors deserve a little reward for their efforts though which is why he’s offering some lucky winner a free GPS Guide app, or $50 cash when they tell people about these new resources via Twitter or Facebook’s new Social Web feature.
