The touch screen is very insensitive and almost illegible in sunlight. It also requires the use of a stylus (not supplied) There was no printed owners manual. I had to buy this separately and all I got was a stack of pages stapled together. After I had purchased the product I discovered that it did not have WiFi or Blue Tooth capability. It also did not have synthetic vision. The catalog description was quite deceptive. I had to contact the manufacturer to learn how to update the database. Ive dealt with Spruce for many years and this is the first time I have been really disappointed with an order.

Not sunlight readable as it says. A little better than my iphone. I like the charts and info at hand. Not so easy updating, takes hours if an entire update is performed if one doesnt have dsl internet. I wish Id bought the 740b but I needed the battery time as my aircraft have no electrical systems. Still, battery time on the 520 is not nearly 2 hours as advertised.

Ive owned an iFly 520 since it first came out a couple years ago. Its an awesome little unit from an awesome company. Its a small screen, but does pretty good in the sunlight and has a bunch of features. And Adventure Pilot keeps updating the software so it just keeps getting better. Pros: Easy to use, can see in sunlight, very compact, good support (if needed), can drive an auto-pilot, supports ADSB (I recommend the Ping for iFly) Cons: Takes a while to boot up. Battery lasts a couple hours, so you may want to plug it in

I have tried now for 6 months to find much to appreciate about this GPS. There isn't much. It's terrible in sunlight. And by terrible, I mean CANNOT be viewed in direct sunlight whatsoever. The touch interface is the worst I have EVER used. In fact, it can be down right maddening to adjust anything in flight without a stylus. The means of updating is antiquated. I bought this after my 720 was DOA and because it offers a battery backup. Now that the 740 is out and includes a built in battery, maybe it will be a better unit, but at this point, I'm a little too gun-shy of the Ifly products, that being said, I do appreciate their customer service staff.

I recently flew back from Daytona Beach Fla to Baltimore Md and used my new 520 as a back up GPS. When I first received the 520 and tried it in my house , it had weak satellite connections. I tried the external antenna from my 700 model but they weren't interchangeable so I ordered a new antenna and problem was solved. After using the 700 , it took a little bit to get used to the smaller screen on the 520. I found that the touch screen was all but inoperable without using the stylus. Overall it was easy to read in the sunlight and performed perfectly , but the stylus needs to be close by. My model 700 had frequent ' No GPS Lock ' but no problems with the 520. For the price , I'm glad I had it with me and will continue to use it.

Q: Does the the iFly 520 include western canada?

This does not cover Canada charts but does have what the manufacture call a "vector mode" which has Canada airports so you can build a flight plan (Canada terrain and obstacles included as well).

Q: Can the iFly 520 be permanently on an instrument panel?

No, it is not designed to be attached to the panel (although I am sure someone could find a way) Airgizmos will most likely have a panel dock available soon to remedy this.

Q: Does this unit include maps of Canada, Europe, or other countries?

Currently, only U.S. charts and data are available on the iFly GPS 520. Plans to develop additional countries are in the works, beginning with Canada, Europe, Australia and South America respectively based on demand.

We are currently working with Nav Canada in an effort to offer a full Canadian data option. Nav Canada is currently developing digitized charts at this time. We are very hopeful that we will be able to offer a full Canadian Data option in the near future.

Many Canadian pilots living along the US/Canada border in the eastern territories find the iFly GPS offer more than adequate information. Our US Charts on the iFly cover up to the 48th latitude (Near Thunder Bay and eastward) and our airport database includes most public Canadian airports.

Q: Does the Adventure Pilot iFly 520 GPS have a vector map of India?

Per the manufacturer, Vector mode support is only in North America.

Q: Does the cradle for the Adventure Pilot iFly 520 GPS incorporate a 1 RAM ball for use with other RAM base mounts?

This additional 1" Ram ball adapter is not included but may be purchased separately. The part number is 11-12923.

Q: Does the Adventure Pilot iFly 520 GPS interface with other units like the tru track ADI's or any autopilots?

Yes, by using the USB to Serial cable included, and a Micro USB to USB adapter, output data can be sent out to other units.

Q: Does the Adventure Pilot 520 include a cigarette light plug power cord?

Yes, the iFly 520 includes the cigarette charging cable.

Q: What's the difference between the Adventure Pilot iFly 720 and 520? Does the 520 have airport charts? Are the subscription fees different?

The iFly 720 is a 7” Sunlight Readable Screen, powered from ships power 12/24v, and has a Wi-Fi receiver built in for wireless updating and integration with other wireless devices like ADS-B. The iFly 520 is a 5” Sunlight Readable Screen, powered by a 2hr internal battery or ships power 12/24v, and it does not have a Wi-Fi receiver. Both units offer that same Moving Map navigation on Sectionals, Airport Diagrams, Plates, etc. Also the yearly subscription for VFR and IFR are the same on both units. It’s $69.99 for VFR and $109.99 for IFR.

Q: Does the Adventure Pilot iFly 520 have a moving map for Canada eastern coast as you are flying along?

Per Adventure Pilot: Unfortunately it does not. We do not support Canadian Charts on any of our devices.

Q: On of the features listed for the Adventure Pilot iFly 520 GPS says Weather (Pre-Flight). Can you give me more info on what this is?

The Pre-Flight option using iFly Connect grabs the latest TAF, METAR, Winds Aloft, TFRs and other data before takeoff for reference in flight.
