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.
