I need your help. I'm not a software or hardware expert. I'm just a hang glider pilot that loves to fly and I'm real interested in acquiring a PNA/PDA that is compatable and will run LK8000.

Due to my age I need a larger screen than 4 inch. I found a PNA with internal GPS that seems like it should work. You can find it here: http://www.chinavasion.com/product_info.php/pName/7-inch-touch-screen-gps-navigator-wifi-direct-win-ce-access/

I would appreciate any feedback anyone would share with me regarding this specific device running LK8000.

Thanking you in advance,2 Isaac

frankly, I have no idea about that hardware - but following the link I saw that there is a pen foreseen as input. According to my experience, devices that need pen input on the touchscreen are difficult to be "clicked" with bare fingers (because they expect a dedicated sharp "tip" like the one on the pen), and almost impossible to be controlled with gloves....

I would recommend going to a shop and checking out touch screen and display brightness of a win CE navigation system, and if you like the "look and feel" (literally taken), give it a try...

I beleive your assessment of the China Vision device is accurate. I will take your advice and put my hand on other PNAs/PDAs. Isaac

Check out this, which Paolo is working on:

A little small, but probably big enough for use on our hang gliders, in portrait mode, mounted on a lateral armclamp for HG.
