KLN 89B vs KLN 90B

KLN 89B vs KLN 90B

I'm hoping to install a panel-mount GPS in my plane soon, and have been looking at the KLN series. (I'm looking at used units) 430's are not an option due to cost, and I have acceptable radios. I'd appreciate comments and pros/cons between the 89 and 90, namely is the 90 worth the extra cost for the newer unit? I do want to use it as an IFR unit.
Thanks.

Re: KLN 89B vs KLN 90B

Mike,

I never flew with a KLN 89, but I have plenty of experience with a KLN 90B.  Once you learn your way around the unit it is actually a pretty good and useful GPS.  I have flown plenty of nice aircraft(King Airs and Lears) that have the KLN 90B.  Since it doesn't have a comm radio in it, those guys don't have to do a panel reconfigure just to have a GPS.  So the point being, it is a good, useful, and still popular GPS.

Now if you are interested in buying one why don't you email me, just use the email link.  I have a unit that I pulled out of my 310 when I installed a GNS 430.  I have all of the manuals, quick reference cards, and a MD-41 annunciator panel that is required for IFR operation.  I would like to see it go to a good home and get some use once again.

Thanks.
