Then any 3rd party GPS tracking software can be used. I am using google earth and MotionX not sure which i like better yet.
Sweet I need to try that on my iPhone

NICE! I love the iPhone app for the EzOSD. It makes FPV recovery much easier. especialy when your using ground vehicles and your worried about theft

Im really happy with the Dragon link. Its not very expensive and you can just forget about ever getting out of RC range again, and concentrate on how to get your TV images back reliably.

You can search http://www.bhphotovideo.com/ for LCD HOOD and there are a bunch in every size you could imagine.

Link to the 7in. LCD hood that I use below.

They also make a 10" that fits the 10" Haier monitor. That's what I have on my ground station (about $70 Amazon, great monitor for the money), along with fat shark goggles using an A/V splitter/amplifier.

Is it just me or paying $99 for a hood to fit my LCS screen is a steep price. I've just pick a cooler type lunch bag that I'm going to cut the bottom.

It's way too high. Search for 7" LCD hood or LCD shade and you will find a bunch for about $20. I got a 10" one for about $30. Even the one linked above is only $37, where did you get $99?
