The comment about most of us posting here working for Airtronics is a bit out of line. Reasonable people can disagree without their motives and character being questioned. I am an Airtronics team pilot, which is a non paid position and came after 20 years of using their products along with just about every other brand out there. I would not have become a team pilot if the product wasn't worth being associated with, the benefits are not worth my reputation. Furthermore it was the excellent customer service that lead me to pursue becoming a team pilot.
Lastly, if your last interaction with them is from the 1980s, don't you think that's a bit dated information? Should I consider not buying an IPAD because my Apple IIe was not what I'd hoped? Maybe I will look into getting a Gateway computer....
