I've been considering one of these for some time. What are the advantages to this vs. a free tablet app such as Avare and Stratux ADS-B in reciever? At least one that I know of is the terrain graphics and elevation display. I currently get current FAA charts including TAC, low and high enroute, approach plates, flight planning, ADS-B weather, and traffic in real time on my tablet. Does the AV8R require paying a recurring fee for updates or operating?
