For those of you familiar with Garmin’s aviation portable GPS units, you probably get a mental picture when I mention Garmin’s Panel Page. For those of you not familiar with the Panel Page it’s a GPS derived instrument pack that displays an airspeed indicator, altimeter, VSI and HSI. This feature has been a very popular feature for years and has assisted several customers with guiding their plane to safety when everything else in their cockpit goes dark. Now with Pilot My-Cast by Garmin you can get this useful instrument pack on the big display of an iPad. The GPS information can be supplied by the internal GPS of a compatible iPad, but an external GPS receiver is recommended for accuracy of the information. This feature is a great addition to the overwhelming usefulness of Pilot My-Cast which includes geo-referenced sectionals, approach plates, IFR enroute charts, fuel prices, aviation weather and flight plan filing via DUAT(S).
