    Can't think of anything offhand. What do you think?
    But I do not see a cheaper approved GPS though, as much as I would like that.

    Use of ADSB equipment now only used on E/AB
    Use of electronic flight boards (for a lack of a better word) for IFR .

    Homing pigeon exchange.
    You contact someone who lives near your destination. They send you a homing pigeon.
    At the end of the runway, you release it and follow it home.

    The gougers at all the avionics companies can suck an egg.
    (See what I did there?)

    I called Surefly a couple of months ago. They said that their unit would be STC'd by Christmas. It is at the top of my Christmas list.
