Garmin 396Written by Michael Leighton
I felt like a kid at Christmas time—and the UPS man was Santa. The email I had received said that the Garmin 396 I had ordered had shipped and should be delivered in the next 48 hours. Every time I saw that big brown truck drive through the neighborhood I found myself looking to see if he was going to stop at my house.
The Garmin 396 is the toy I have been waiting for. During a serious search for better in-cockpit weather display solutions, the 396 popped up at Oshkosh 2005 and said “I’m here!” It promised to do everything I wanted, plus a lot more.
