    it’s a pity, pt, that you don’t have hp ipaq hw6515 with add-on wi-fi. It has assisted GPS and would certainly get GPS fix inside of the airplane. I always wanted to use GPS in airplane but here in Europe airflights are so short and crew is not allowing for gadgets on board..

    That was really cool to chat with you sir. Keep up the great work!

    CSB- I once flew on a USAir767 that had projection screen’s showing GPS data including altitude and speed plus destination ETA, it was really neat!
