With sunny skies, 80-degree weather and no storms in sight, this is a whole different Sun 'n Fun from last year. The week-long event kicked off yesterday, and while there are still memories of the 2011 tornado, pilots have come out in full force to enjoy what has come to be known as "spring break for pilots". We're here at the show and already having a blast. Here's what's going on this year inside the Garmin booth:
Garmin Pilot. This is the newest aviation app on the market designed for iPads, iPhones and Android devices. It does it all – navigation, charts, weather, flight planning and more, and it's on display in the Garmin booth. Swing by and ask us for a demo or download your free 30 day trial in the App Store or Google Play.
An iPad Giveaway. Just a couple of weeks ago Flying Magazine had a list of 5 reasons why we “need” the new iPad. Are you convinced? Well, you’re in luck. One lucky visitor to the Garmin Sun ‘n Fun booth will win the new iPad preloaded with a one-year complimentary Garmin Pilot subscription.
Seminars. Are you interested in learning more about the features and capabilities that Garmin avionics have to offer? Do you have a specific question you want to ask one of the Garmin pros? We’re offering daily seminars at Sun ‘n Fun covering a broad range of topics including iPad apps, ADS-B, portable GPS and more. Check out the seminar schedule for details.
Rebates and Show Specials. What better reason to visit the Garmin booth than for money-saving rebates and show specials? If you purchase a Garmin portable at the show, you can save up to $100 on your purchase!
And for those who can't make it to Sun 'n Fun, you too can enjoy a show special. During the week of Sun 'n Fun, the GTN Trainer app for the iPad 2 will be available at a reduced price of $4.99.
Let us update the software on your aviation portable. Ask us a question. Or just come by to talk about flying. Our favorite part about going to aviation events is meeting our customers. So if you're here at the show or you're planning on flying in later this week, come say hi! And if you can't make it to Sun 'n Fun this year, be sure to stay tuned to the blog for more updates from the show.
