Re: [tracker2] Re: Nuvi 350 set up
- I haven't tested my 350 flying, but I have a friend who recently took
his Nuvi 700 along on a commercial flight. It locked on and tracked at
altitude for him. Which explains why it was showing a Max Speed reading
of 368 MPH!

The little ADMS-1 that was available worked the best so far at jet speeds and only seeing a fraction of the sky. (steep banks to the left causes my GPS antenna to see dirt, and therefor 'unlock' from tracking) All other units I've tried would never 're-lock' until slowing to speeds <250 kts.
