Control Vision, makers of the award-winning AnywhereMap(R), AnywhereWx(R), and Pocket Plates(TM) have just upped the ante on handheld GPS systems and their advancing capability. Announcing AnywhereMap Version 1.6; a highly tuned moving map application that now contains such features as advanced VNAV, improved weather integration, an all new Emergency Landing Mode, improved graphics, and user definable views. This system will take advantage of the new iPAQ 4700 series PDA from HP with a larger, higher resolution color screen, higher performance, and slim form factor. This sleek system mounts in the newly designed Citadel mount, which protects the plug and makes installation a snap.

"We call it the Pocket MFD(TM)", says Jay Humbard, President and CEO. "A pilot can now have a complete GPS navigation system with XM WX(TM) weather avoidance and legal instrument approach plates on a system that still fits in a shirt pocket." The days of using proprietary handheld GPS systems that only do navigation are coming to a close. Why buy a unit the size of a brick that won’t do anything different 3 years from now than the day you take it out of the box? AnywhereMap continually advances its features and functions with simple software upgrades that cost 1/3 of the competitors' data-only subscription. When you add XM weather and Pocket Plates, you have all the functionality of a glass cockpit in the palm of your hand. Safety, Efficiency, Increased Aircraft Utility all for a fraction of the initial and ongoing cost of panel systems.
