I'm going to summarize how I see this situation and hope for some critique.... Nexus 7= $200 GDL = $800 Garmin Pilot subscription = $100/yr. No Music Garmin 696 used = $1400 GDL = NA XM subscription with music = $65/yr. So I see a $400 extra up front cost, good, original Garmin programming without need for constant updates and competition between in house groups in their organization for who gets what cool stuff - iPad or Android.... XM music. vs. All new equipment, $400 cheaper, less monthly cost, equipment that is useful for many other things. Evolving software, no tunes. Anything to add?
