So I'm going to order from your ebay link. The davis micro china company wants to charge $90 shipping. What? Cheapest offered $82. So, still cheaper than ebay but, the fact that they want to do that, makes me suspicious of the company.

So ordering from your ebay link now!

Another quick search:

Word of warning to all: Dont get sucked into buying a cheap "open" LCD without the invertor(useless) OR a 10.4" Digital Photo frame...

Thanks Nat.

So, Paypal has put the money on "Hold" for this guy, as it's a high risk transaction. He said he can't ship until he has the money, Paypal told me he does have it, just not available, until he ships and I give him positive feedback.

It's a security measure to protect me.

But I told the guy (of the first URL you sent Nat in the original post) that if he doesn't want to ship, even though it's HIS.. just not available YET... then to refund and I'd buy from someone else.

We'll see!

In the mean time I ordered another from the one of the URL's you posted, the one of the guy in the states.

Thanks again Nat, very much appreciated!!!

Best,

Matt

I'm currenlty looking on the following site:

Ok, You'll see that the price range is a bit higher, but you have all sorts of LCD (even touchscreen enable) in all sort of sizes AND OPEN FRAME.

All great links guys! Thanks!

The original order got sticky there. The guy refused to ship until Paypal paid him, Paypal said the funds are good just ship and then you get paid. He wouldn't do it, nor refund my money!

I had to escalate it to a claim from a dispute by calling Paypal. They refunded me today.

Screen has been ordered from another seller. I'll see if I get that one :)

Avlisoft EFB

Post by cmantel1 »

I have been using Avlisofts EFB program for years. It was the best you could get at the time. Since then, I have not even looked for any others, i guess because i have been so satisfied.

I have a 17 monitor setting just to my left where it would be in the "big planes", and I use it as a moving map primarily for taxiing, and to prevent RNY incursions (traffic at the airports are also shown).

Also, is is updated using Navigraph, which makes selecting and setting frequencies for any VORs, NDB, DME, etc. you might want to tune in to. Lots are there that do not even show up on the JetMax ND, but when tuned in, there it is, just like Mark had it in there all along. Why they dont all show up on the ND is something I never understood. But, it is fantastic software, lots of functions, and I especially like to plan SIDs and STARs because it gives you a SID/STAR "overview" with all of them there to select from. You dont have to go rummaging through all your paper charts to find them.

I recommend this program to anyone.

Looks a very good piece of software. A question for current users of EFB. Does it create a flight plan for you that can be saved as a PLN file into the Routes folder generated by Sim-Avionics software that the FDS CDU and ND accesses for route information?
