Max Trescott GPS Guides For iPhone Now Available
GPS technology is an essential part of many General Aviation
cockpits, yet half of GPS users surveyed said they have difficulty
getting a GPS to do what they want. Using flight plans and finding
infrequently used pages were the most common issues. Now new Max
Trescott GPS Guides for the iPhone are available to help pilots
operate their GPSs.
Introduced though a partnership with Hilton Software, the
initial release includes applications for the Garmin GPSMAP 296,
396, 495, 496, 695 and 696 GPSs. "We are happy to extend our
market-leading position on the iPhone by partnering with Glass
Cockpit Publishing to create GPS Guides for the iPhone.
The new GPS Guides offer unprecedented ease of use and eliminate
fumbling through checklists." said Dr. Hilton Goldstein, CEO of
Hilton Software LLC.
The Max Trescott GPS Guides work equally well as illustrated
self-learning guides and as quick reference checklists. Organized
by function, a menu tree structure makes it easy to drill down to
find exactly what you need. Color screen images let you see how the
GPS looks at each step in the process. Since iPhone users always
carry their phone, pilots are never without GPS information when
they need it.
Each page in the Max Trescott GPS Guides has detailed
explanations and GPS screen shots, not just a list of steps. Tips
are also included offering suggestions on how best to use the GPS.
Plus pilots can always have the most current information, since
application updates are downloadable after new GPS features are
introduced. Perhaps best of all, the company says, all of the
Guides are available on the device without adding an ounce to your
flight case! Detailed explanations on accessing weather information
are included for all XM Weather enabled GPSs.
