I've been wrestling lately on whether to get a 1000 or 2000c. I'm not
really all that concerned about terrain awareness, since I fly where
it's almost exclusively flat. In addition, I think the color is
cute, but not really neccesary. In fact, the 320x320 pixel display of
the 1000 seems a little sharper to my eyes. What else do you like
about the 2000c vs. your old 1000?


Additional screens (options and layouts), including airport diagrams of the
major ones. It also has driving points of interest if you want to use it on
the road...

Dunno, does the 1000 have the SD card? I have lots of 'flight plans' stored on my 2000, and have barely touched the 512
meg card...

The original only had 32 meg card, but you could install bigger, just like
any camera...

Even pilots that fly over flat terrtain benefit from terrain
capabilities. Where I fly, towers are everywhere for the first 15-45
minutes, depending on the direction I travel. Airspace also appears
on the terrain page, which is a nice treat. Oh look, 5-minutes ahead
is a tower at my altitude and 10-minutes ahead is class bravo.

While I very much enjoy the color display, I hear the 1000 runs
infinitely longer on batteries. Batteries in my 2000c might make 2-
hours.

The 1000 has obstructions (towers, etc). It also has airspace.

In reading the documentation for the 2000c, the manufacturer expects
the batteries to be used as an emergency backup only, and that normal
operations of the unit should be via ship power.

FYI

You guys had such good things to say about it that I ordered one.

I found one at $689.50 for that price I can't go wrong.

But old planes tend to have crappy ship power outlets, frequently they are
even disconnected...
