This is the only one I recommend in my ground school classes. Very modern technology, extremely user friendly, can be learned just by starting to use it, and great display. Worth every penny!July 27, 2018Purchased

5 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesFinally a readable flight computerWhile in the air I have have been using the Sporty's Android E6B, You can't use that during an FAA test. The new CX-3 has a great display, readable day and night. Seems to have all the functions needed, and the upgrade process was straightforward and simple. The fact that it can be updated should add longevity/features. The only issue is it doesn't support daylight savings time, so you will need to set your local / destination timezones twice a year by offset vs named location.Screen Comparison.May 1, 2018Everything I expected. Easy to read. It woud have helped to have a hard copy of the instructions. However the website is user friendly.March 16, 2018Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesThe simplicity is amazingI struggled with the complexities of the sportys e6b electronic for my private, this is so easy to use and is remarkable, it’s going to make my instrument a breeze with the rate of climb/decent and the holding pattern entry. it’s a must for any pilot both new and old.February 18, 2018Purchased
7 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesAn Easy to Use, Essential Piece of EquipmentI am a student pilot who purchased both a traditional E-6B and the CX-3. I wanted the E-6B for nostalgic purposes and to develop that appreciation for what pilots had to use prior to the electronic computers, and not to mention to have a back up in case battery failure. The CX-3 is very intuitive and I prefer it over the E-6B for both speed and accuracy. The manual is available online, but there is a quick reference sheet included which explains the function of each keypad button. Definitely recommend.February 9, 2018Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesOutstanding performanceMakes life easier worth every penny. Very useful every pilot needs. Definitely recommend.November 21, 2017Purchased

This is approved to use during FAA written exam.
However, little bit bigger than CX-2, no instructions (you have to download in pdf format at ASA website), no cords for software updates (fits Samsung USB cord on port).
Overall, pretty good so far.November 10, 2017Purchased
