Nice product
Quality product, albeit somewhat expensive for what it is but hey, it’s an airplane widget, right? I am instructing my son for his IR and this is indispensable for highlighting minimums on approach ( really its only use). It sticks on fine (clean the face real good with glass cleaner) and I did not have the problem of bug moving around with engine vibration.
I used the 2 3/4 in and it is slightly smaller than the bezel. I may try the 2 7/8 in but I think it might be too big. It sticks to the glass of your instrument inside the bezel so measure precisely. (In case you don’t do math, the difference in sizes is 1/8 in.)

Pricy for what it is but good
Does what it says, but I wish the markers didn't obstruct the numbers sometimes. Also, I wish it fit better, it left a few mm so it sits off center on my altimeter.

Handy gadget
Glad we decided to purchase these. They are a little pricy however they work as advertised, easy to install and have not had any issues since installed.

Pros: Great approach reminder that's hard to miss. Easy to install, but you do have to measure your instrument face accurately before ordering. Cons: A bit pricey for what it is.

Cons: Check the diameter of both altimeters. Ours had one 2 3/4 and the other altimeter was 2 7/8

Pros: I had nothing but trouble with this product. Cons: Difficult to size correctly on the instrument. The sticky back came off the glass very easily. The first one I received was broken and had to be sent back. Even when I did get a good one of the right size, rotating it around the bezel was very stiff and practically unusable. I ended up going back to the simple suction pointer and this worked very well. Sporty's gave me credit on the transaction so I was happy with that, but I would not recommend this product.

Pros: Honestly, I don't know how I would have gotten my IFR rating without it. You need to remember so many things--setting this made for one less item for me to write down while flying blind. And its almost critical to have on approach to your Decision Altitude. Just having it in cruise flight is helpful too.

Which dimension do I use the otside or inside the glass area?
Gary M on Oct 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe I used the dimensions across the glass face.....not 100% positive but can measure again next time I get home from my business trip and can get to the hangar.....you can check back with me @ the 25th. I'm currently out of the country.

is this altimeter very accurate?
Anson C on Dec 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This product is just the multi-colored bugs to mark altitudes, not the altimeter itself.
