Hello. I just found your site. What a great project! I'm not into
soaring (yet) but I am working towards my private pilot license, in
the Montreal area (Canada). So I'm interested in getting a GPS for
general aviation. The Garmin aviation GPS's are out of my price
range, so I'm thinking of getting a Mio C230 ($150 here in Canada) and
hacking it to run Cumulus (hacking instructions can be found here: http://www.kombitz.com/2007/10/31/how-to-unlock-mio-c230/)
. Apparently the C230 runs a version of Windows, and can probably run
So here are my questions:
1) has anyone tried something like this?
2) do you see any obvious problems I might encounter?
