Got a GPS II


Hey; I was very lucky and got given a Garmin GPS II today

Dunno if I can use it for aviation though; just from a quick search it sounds like there is a 90kt limit on the unit; is there any way to bypass this?

I guess if I get lost I can set it up for slow flight
but I'd rather not

I once had one of these that had the 90K limit. Never figured out how to get around it. And yes, I do own a 152. I can't remember what happen if you exceeded 90K. Does it blank out the screen or does it just top out at 90K no matter what your ground speed is?
