Pretty In Depth
The course is very complete with all the features for the GPS but it is very dry, you really cant make this exciting. Fell asleep numerous times and was very tedious to get through but thats the nature of the material. This GPS is terrible to use in real life compared to modern ones but this helps me regress to understand how to operate it vs the modern functions of current ones.

Go for Garmin! 430/530
This course certainly made using the Garmin 430W a lot easier. You'll need to practice on the Garmin downloadable simulator to get a feel for the set up, then fly with an instructor to put it all together. Great course. The more you practice the better you get.

Very good intro to the 430/530
I bought a quarter share of a C182 that has a GNS 530W in it. I 'm an older pilot (63) who got my IFR rating (and have flown since primarily) on steam gauges and never got a great intro to GPS for IFR. This course is a good grounding in both IFR GPS in general and the older Garmin products in particular. Used with Garmin's 430/530 simulator (downloadable for free on the Garmin website) I feel comfortable enough now to be able to fly our aircraft in basic IFR situations. The course is basically just videos (no interactive elements, no quizzes etc.) and the content (and format) is a little dated (old 4x3 format, database dates in the mid 2000's, etc.) but worth the investment in clarity, comprehensiveness, and increased confidence. Thanks John and Martha for helping me expand my capabilities and keep my flying safe.
