    My Asus phone in flight mode still give me a GPS reading. So I don't agree that flight mode kills the GPS as well.

    Re: Best current Garmin for T4A

    The "i" in the 700i and 750i denotes INreach. That means it also comes with the satellite communications included, just like the 66i.

    Re: 50ppm diesel availability.

    In Zambia 50ppm is not yet available. They have what they call low sulphur diesel (LSD) and you find this in major towns. The Zambian LSD refers to 500ppm diesel, not 50 ppm - very confusing.
