iSoar - Mac native analysis and planning software by Karl Kunz[_2_]
What file formats are supported. I've been able to figure out a few by trial and error but wonder which ones work best. I entered .cup format waypoints which show up on the map but they do not have any labels.

back up gps? by Nicholas Long
Whats everyone's favorite backup gps (if you fly with one). It occurred to me that my Naviter and LK are fairly unstable and it would be wise to carry a backup... Garmin 96 or garmin 195 are cheap, not sure about their power consumption.
