markmn Posted March 9, 2013 Report Share Posted March 9, 2013 In the name of safety I would like to put a little personal experience out there. I have a CFI the I regularly fly with. He has ADSB on his ipad with and when comparing the XM on the G3X it has not been nearly as detailed or accurate. I also noticed a comment in aviation consumer saying you can not look out farther than 250nm from your current location. Thats not very far if you going someplace. I dont know if it is true or not. And of course we know there are some holes in ADSB coverage in less populated areas but should be filled soon. Because I do a fair amount of VFR cross country flights I am going to keep my XM weather along with ADSB in the G3X and continue to do comparisons. Based on my experiences so far I would not count on it for extended cross country flying. Mark Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
