The votes have been counted and the results are in! We asked our aviation e-newsletter subscribers to vote for their favorite Garmin aviation portable. The GPSMAP 496
took first place. This result didn't surprise us much since the GPSMAP 496 has been on the market for several years and we often hear rave reviews about it from our customers. Even though it's a great product, it appears to have a formidable competitor from our newest portable series. The aera
is our new touchscreen portable series and it wasn't too far behind the GPSMAP 496 in votes. The aera has also received some very positive reviews lately. According to Max Trescott's Aviation Trends, "I found the aera GPSs easier to use than the units they replace." He goes on to say that "the more I used the aera, the more I liked it."
