Default Seat cushion

Some time ago there was a discussion in the group about seat cushions

Today I received a catalogue from"Gadget Alert" (1-800-429-0039),
www.gadgetalert.com

They had a cushion advertised:

TN335 Thermo-Sensitive Mamory Foam Chair Cushion ($49.95)

You short ones may want to look at it?

It is both seat and back and composed of a NASA invented memory foam.

Seat is 15" x 16" x 6".

Can be folded (back to bottom) and carried to different locations.

This is a cool site, John, but I haven't been able to find the seat
you're referring too.

But...

Did you see that electronic compass on the bottom of first page of the
auto section? I'm thinking that it could possibly be a worthwhile
addition to an aircraft panel.

1. Go to site.
2. Enter "13HA04A" in the source code block.
3. When next page comes up search for "TH335" (cushion).

Reading description again and looking at picture, I think the 6 inches
is the back and bottom folded together dimension and the sitting
dimension is 3 inches (like the sheet you have????)

On compass. I don't know the technology they are using (It sticks to
the dash???) Also not sure how it detects ice unless it compares temp
and dew point but in the car/cockpit it could not tell what is
outside???

As you can see, I double posted original post. My computer posted
while I was typing the first time and I couldn't find so sent again.
Now see both posts ( Sorry about that.

Which compass do you mean?

TM337(337Y)
TE817
TE326

As a general rule, I don't fool with these type of compasses from long
experience (they don't work good) compared to a Aircraft compass. I'd
hate to bet my life on one (

Many OEM compass/temp units in cars, just have a preset that tells the ice
light to come on whenever the temp falls to, say 35 degrees.

My take is that this unit would only be good to satisfy the compass
requirement in the regs.

I agree. But it does look nice, and the extra temp sensors couldn't hurt.

FWIW, I don't plan on ever flying where I'll need anything other than a
sectional for navigation. My goal is to make even the compass
extraneous. (Will it happen? Naah. But we've all gotta have goals
don't we.)
