There’s simply no better way to learn how to operate a new panel-installed GPS than to twist knobs and push buttons. Now you don’t have to go to the airport to do that. These portable Docking Stations are custom made for popular Garmin GPSs: simply slide your GPS out of the airplane (using a 3/32 allen wrench) and into this Dock, and you can practice without running down your aircraft’s battery. Learn how to navigate through pages, set up approaches and use advanced features (using simulator mode on your GPS). Also great for entering flight plans at home. Optional cooling fan is recommended if units are to be used for over 1 hour. Docking Stations convert regular household 110V to DC power for the avionics.
