Thread: AnywhereMap installaiton

  1. #1

    AnywhereMap installaiton

    The reason that I asked is that I have been trying to
    determine how people handle the enroute chart portion
    of the needed IFR information. I wrote customer
    service but have not received an answer yet. One
    could buy the appropriate paper charts from another
    source and that might be the best way to handle it.
    The web site recommends that you print our the letdown
    plates that you think most likely to provide a paper
    backup. Jepp is getting so expensive that
    alternatives are more attractive. I gave
    consideration to going back to NOAA charts this year.
    Next year I will evaluate the AnywhereMap option
    again.

    I bought the package because I do not own a suitable
    GPS or pocket computer. I don't think using my Dell
    laptop in the cockpit would be a viable solution. My
    current GPS is a Magellan. It still works but the
    data is way out of date and Magellan will not supply
    updates for aviation data. Of course, it has a lot
    fewer features than AnywhereMap, but is not too bad.

    You might be able to answer my other question. Is
    Bluetooth the same as IEEE 802.11b or are they
    different 2.4 GHz protocols? It is not clear to me
    just what I need to do to get everything talking but
    maybe it will clear up when the UPS man commith. I am
    using a Linksys Wireless-B Broadband Router to
    communicate to my laptop and visitors laptops.
    Getting all these protocols straight seems harder than
    it should be.

    Thanks, Willis

    I still can't imagine NOT having a paper chart, the difference is
    that now I might have one that's a bit out of date. However, I
    download the special flight restrictions to the PPC before flying,
    when I check the weather. We are north of DC, in the ADIZ, & near
    both stadiums and nuke plants, so having the latest info in some
    form is crucial. What was interesting was that the Customs
    Blackhawk landed behind a guy from our airport and the officers
    wanted to see that he had up-to-date info. He showed them an
    outdated chart, but that his Garmin GPS was current and they were
    satisfied. Turns out that he'd been right on the edge of the P40
    (Camp David) restriction but was also able to show that he'd not
    crossed the boundary.

    AnywhereMap has a REALLY small staff, so it might take a while. They
    were really good on the phone for my initial quesitons. However,
    I've found the guys on the discussion forum are really the ones to
    ask first, as there are some people who live with this thing.

    Nothing wrong with NOAA, printing out the Anywhere Charts, or
    carrying the bound Howie Keefe SkyCharts and a magnifying glass.

    I went with Anywhere because I already had a PPC that I had to live
    with and use the GPS for street info. Adding the aviation
    capability was an easy decision ($95) on top of what I had.

    I ferried a plane last winter half-way across the country with a
    Garmin hiking GPS and sectionals. It was a PITA and sure ate the
    double-A batteries, but it worked!

    WiFi and BT are both on 2.4 Gig but very different in how they use
    they frequency. They can create interference for each other if
    close to the opposing type of transmitter.

    By buying the bundle, they'll have configured the COM ports and such
    for you. I found it REALLY important to keep the AnywhereMap order
    straight: Start the GPS, do the reset on the PPC, then start
    AnywhereMap. I also practiced with it in the car till I was
    comfortable with it before it went into the plane.

    Rocky Mountain, Seattle Avionics, et al have sharp stuff, but price-
    wise are way beyond my little vfr B19.

    AnywhereMap installaiton

    I use the NavAir system which has an IFR mode. It is updated every
    28 days and has all the victor airways on it. I also am trying out
    the Flightsoft Express which lets you download the enroute map for
    your route of flight. Currently it is very cumbersome on a PDA and I
    don't like it at all. I love their desktop application and have been
    using it since it was a DOS program.

    I uploaded pictures of my installation in the file section, member
    photos 9707L.
