    The E04 can be hooked into your GPS to send the GPS position.

    Thank you for the replies! It looks like internal gps will fit the bill since the aircraft lacks a GPS. Is the hat shelf/package shelf a solid enough location or should we mount somewhere more solid?

    Mine isn't, heck it isn't even bolted down! I've seen an install on a platform mounted behind the baggage compartment but that owner isn't on here.
