Gold Seal Ventures has adapted the Kindle DX for the display of air approach plates and are formally launching it at AirVenture this week, reports AVWeb's Paul Bertorelli. Readability and storage capability were two factors. So was, apparently, cost.
AVweb prepared the detailed video above and says "The plates are readable and relatively easy to find on the device, and although the DX itself is a little pricey at $480, AirBrief's data service promises to me [sic] more affordable than other electronic chart sources."
NACO Sync offers their set of Kindle DX approach plates. Unlike, apparently, the ones by AVWeb, these have hyperlinks so that navigation is point and click instead of having to enter a page number. These are in the Kindle-readable MOBI format and are free. Information courtesy of Jason Stone.
