old gps, new gps

I dunno, two screen shots don't do it. I was hoping to show how much more awesome my new GPS is compared to my old one (which was also pretty awesome), but static flight displays probably aren't the right way to convey that. Oh well.

The display is much crisper, and larger, and on this page at least the compass rose, bug, and data fields are overlaid on the map instead of being off to one side (that's configurable). Also, the terrain is contour-colored by elevation instead of being all one color. If I got too low, it would pop up a window with a terrain/obstacle warning as necessary. There are other pages with a lot more information on them, but I find I use this map page the most.

Anyway, I really like it.
