Thats a pretty good idea, thanks. I have played around with my CFII's 396, I've used the Airmap 2000c, and I've played around with a 295. I really like the garmins, but I mainly want something to give me some distance readouts considering the rental plane Im using for my IR doesnt have GPS or DME. I dont want to spend the money on a Garmin, even tho they are considered the elite brand. I'd like to get a 295 if I could find one cheap enough, or a 296 would be really nice, but I'd have to save a while for that one.
