The setup Patrice uses is as follows:-
Compaq iPAQ 3970
Garmin Pilot III
The Pocket PC is powered via a
cigarette/accessory plug into a 3800 series connector that has two
outlets, one is a serial connector that goes out to the Garmin Pilot
III and he then has a Garmin R connector this lead plugs
into. He then has a power lead that comes out of the bottom of
the connector which goes to a USB plug, which then plugs into the
USB/Cigarette Accessory Plug. This allows Patrice to
power not only the iPAQ but also the Garmin Pilot III and to receive
NMEA data output to the iPAQ from the Garmin Pilot III being used as
a GPS Receiver.
WinPilot VFR and
Companion as his main applications when airborne.
Both the Garmin Pilot III and the
Compaq iPAQ are then fixed to the NavPad yellow triangle mount.
This has a Velcro strap fixed to it. The whole point of the
NavPad is the base of it is arched, to fit the contour of your leg,
allowing you to place this on top of your leg and fasten the Velcro
straps around your leg giving you a place where you can keep your
GPS setup close to you, and if you do find yourself banking steeply,
then the whole system stays with you. This can then give you
an ideal solution
whilst flying a plane or a helicopter.
