Good overview, but...
Not really $180 worth of education here. Be aware this is a Garmin course, not a King Schools product per se. Still, it’s a good start, if not a tremendous value.

Good Training
The training was comprehensive and educational. Sometimes they skip ahead too fast but you can always watch again. I have 15,000 hours but still enjoy learning something new, and this course fits the bill.

This is a must use series
This training series is spot on. When transitioning to a BE20 with a GTN650 in it, this training material was spot on flattened the learning curve.

Very Helpful
Overall, it was a great introduction to the GTN. I would have liked to see more practice scenarios with less step by step guidance unless a mistake were made.

Basic at the most
It was an okay course that only touched on the very basics of the GTN system. Not worth the price paid sadly.

Overall pretty good
I have the 650 so would have been more useful for me to have the option to select either 750 or 650 for training. Better for 750 owners. 650’s format and look are significantly different thus going from training on 750 to plane not directly transferable. Base logic of course is similar.
