Wow, it might not be a bargain after all! I don't want to fly in any cumulus bitumen.
Going to take my test Tuesday. There's a lot more to this than I thought at first, but I'm not getting any younger, and would like to have it in my tool box.
You can get the regular version of Map Pilot for about $10, or the Business model for about $40, which has all the options unlocked. I will probably go with the business model, and will have all it offers at a discounted rate from purchasing them all.
