Customer Reviews


Good step by step instructions. Logically organized. But much too expensive for what it does. Basically it's just a rehash of the manual that comes with the unit. I was expecting some interactive features, video, or even a simulator to play with. None of that is present. It's all text.

App not working with iOS 11

The App doesn't work any more after the latest iOS update (and the developer is unresponsive). When it worked, I found the App quite helpful.

GPS Guide

A helpful "outline"-style guide to the 430W, but woefully overpriced. It is essentially a synopsis of the User's Manual organized in a reasonably intuitive fashion, with just a small handful of tips. Putting this on an iPad or iPhone is certainly more accessible than Garmin's large operators' manual. Also, note that this is much more for the person fairly acquainted with operating the 430s, and not an instruction manual. This is a product well worth, say, $5.00.
