real quick, last minute question--

will be travelling in the back on Continental Airlines and would like to bring a handheld "camping" style GPS with me, just to play with it while I am sitting for 4 hours.

CO policy on this?


thanks

look in the in-flight magazine, or ask the captain... some airlines allow gps, some don't.

I've had someone ask on a couple of occasions and I didn't mind. He even asked for a few waypoints along the way. Pretty neat that you can get reception out of that little side window. When he was leaving the aircraft, he asked us what our average groundspeed was to compare and the handheld was spot on.

You will be amazed at how accurate that $100.00 gps is.
