One of the major weaknesses of the iPad is it's highly reflective screen. This new glare-reducing screen protector make the iPad much easier to view during the day, and also keeps the screen clean.
After the iPad was released in 2010, pilots quickly realized that the tablet was far more useful with an accurate position source. Initially there were very few options for pilots, but the market has rapidly expanded and there are more choices than ever. How do you pick the right one?
We always advise pilots to carry a backup power option, whether it's a cigarette lighter charger or a stand-alone battery. For those pilots who want the ultimate backup, or for those whose airplane does not have a cigarette lighter, there's a new option.
Unquestionably the hottest iPad accessory over the past four years has been the ADS-B receiver. While US pilots have enjoyed these benefits for years, many pilots in Canada, Europe and elsewhere are wondering whether this technology works in other countries.
