I'll be transitioning from a G1000 aircraft into an older plane with only a single VOR for navigation. Aside from the radio and looking out the window, I'd like to have a more solid backup plan for assuring I'm on the right path.
I have an iPhone but I honestly don't know much about iPhone apps and aviation, are there any simple apps that don't cost a fortune in subscription fees to just verify my position or should I buy a used, handheld GPS? (It wouldn't need to even display a sectional, weather, etc...)
Again, it's just for backup purposes and piece of mind. I can't find much on regulations on phone usage other than of course no talking...but I'm assuming data is a different story with the iPhone/iPad apps out now.
[Edit: Will be flying VFR, with paper chart, just looking for a simple iPhone solution for backup purposes]
