A course on GPS 430/530
I just finished the course and find it very useful not only to learn how, but a great tool to use for future review. I have gone through the course one time, and will need to review it several more times to burn it into my memory; not because it wasn't well done but because it is the way I learn things. A super, great course.

For someone with minimal exposure to a 530W, this is the tool you need. You will probably watch it several times. I don't recommend this for someone who has been flying a 530W for more than a year.

Highly recommended.
J & M King do an outstanding job as usual. The course is an excellent introductory or review course for the GNS 430 and 530, but, of course, is not a substitute for the Garmin guides. After many years of using both the GNS 430 and 530, I found the course to be a good refresher.
