Outstanding!

  • By Paul from Douglasville GA USA on Friday, November 13, 2009
  • Pros: Example flights.
  • Cons: Wish it was twice as thick!
  • Review: It more than met my expectations. Max is well versed in the G1000 as well as WAAS and other GPS's. He presents the information in a witty and easily understandable manner.

i liked it, lots of useful stuff

  • By James from Anaheim Hills CA USA on Friday, December 18, 2009
  • Review: Lots of tips and info that applies to the most recent up grades.  Of course information is always helpful but it is the format that allows the transfer of information and this book does that. more so than the first book on the g1000 although I am unable to explain why!

  • Review: Max Trescott's GPS/WAAS book is every Instrument Pilot's dream of a manual. It is precise, easy to understand & leaves no question unanswered. Max's use of TIPS, graphics and actual approches are stunning in their book placement and detailed explanation. I guarantee that if you buy & absorb this glass panel made easy manual you will be a better, safer Instrument Pilot. Dan Sorkin CFII AOPA 00146762

Excellent - Worth the $$$

  • By Gregg from Wayne IL USA on Tuesday, February 19, 2013
  • Pros: How to actually program 430/530 W's in the real world when loading a proceedure.
  • Cons: Any mention to systems other than Garmin. He should do a separate book on all other systems.
  • Review: Maybe a little too much technical discussion on how GPS works.
