This Pilot-friendly GPS manual for the Garmin GPSmap 695 and GPSmap 696 from ZD Publishing concentrates on a task-oriented format to cover all operations. This unit does NOT have any automotive or marine capabilities. The GPSmap 696 includes all the features of the GPSmap 496 with features such as SafeTaxi and the AOPA Airport Directory. The SafeTaxi feature has detailed maps of more than 650 airports to help guide you when taxiing and identifies the most accident-prone and runway incursion areas on the airport.
A subscription is available from Garmin for approach charts which resemble the paper version of NACO charts. They are scalable through 6 levels of magnification. The unit has a dedicated Panel Soft Key which makes that feature easily available from any page.
