Motion Computing Tablet PC Is Perfect For Pilots

Motion Computing, a leading provider of integrated mobile computing solutions, is delighted to share an independent video review showing the incredible outdoor capabilities of its Motion J3400 Tablet PC.

Australia-based Tablet PC Blog took the Motion J3400 for a test flight from Moorabbin Airport YMMB and compared it to the trusty old HP TC1100 (out of production). Specifically, Tablet PC Blog compared the screen performance of a typical Tablet PC with the superior Motion Hydis AFFS+ display.

As highlighted in the fantastic video, using a Tablet PC in the cockpit makes flight management much easier. Pilots can take down quick ink notes (frequencies, clearances, runways and so on) while also viewing maps and approach plates. In fact, it was suggested that a pilot could probably carry all of the information that they will ever need with them in the cockpit.

The Motion J3400 can also run one of a number of flight planning applications that allow a pilot to plan a flight, submit their flight plan, and follow their flight plan on a moving map. The Motion J3400 comes with integrated GPS, or the pilot can easily connect GPS devices to the Tablet using a Bluetooth connection.

Motion Computing has always been a leader in indoor/outdoor display technology, said a Tablet PC Blog representative. The company doesnt use the approach of ramping up the backlight and marketing on how many nits (brightness) its display has. Motions reflective and transflective display gives by far the best performance of any display in a bright environment and it does so with only a small amount of power - and that means maximum battery life in the air!

To cap the video off, Tablet PC Blog performed an instrument approach in a heavy crosswind... Quite a ride!
