I have a Control Vision Anywhere Map Duo aviation GPS tablet PC currently on sale at eBay until 12/1/2010 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&Item=300497092081). The unit has been gently used, and is for sale because I'm now flying a plane with a built-in GPS. This is a great aviation GPS, and the tablet PC is icing on the cake!

It comes with the following:
  • Anywhere Map PRO (sectional charts)
    Pocket Plates 3 (approach plates)
    Street Atlas USA 2010 (for navigating on the ground)
    UltraTAWS expansion pack (increases map & plate resolution)
    AC power adapter/charger
    12v/24v power adapter/charger
    USB cable
    airplane yoke mount

The hardware consists of a fully functional, 7" touch-screen tablet PC running Windows 7 Home Premium, with an internal GPS . The screen has a Screen Armor protective cover on it to protect it from scratches & reduce glare. Specs on the tablet PC:
  • Intel Atom Z520 (1.33 GHz) processor, 533MHz FSB, 512KB L2 cache
    7" WSVGA 1024x600 touch screen
    1GB RAM
    32GB solid-state disk
    8.27" x 4.61" x 0.89", 1.46 pounds
    Sirf Star III GPS, WAAS-enabled
    built in 1.3 megapixel camera for video conferencing
    802.11b/g wireless LAN
    Bluetooth 2.0+EDR
    USB port, headphone jack, multi-I/O port
    integrated sound card, built-in speakers
    SDHC card reader
    lithium-ion battery

You'll need to purchase the map subscription ($115/year, or $395 lifetime) to obtain current maps because the existing maps will expire in December (but can still be used until a subscription is purchased). Much more economical than the Garmin GPS products that can cost over $800/year for comparable information.

Here's some information about it from the Control Vision website:

The Anywhere Advantage™:
