This post provides a user review and comparison of the Samsung Q1EX versus the Fujitsu P1610 UMPCs. This review focuses on the user interface and screen performance in an aircraft cockpit environment running the Anywhere Map Pro aviation GPS navigation software created and sold by Control Vision Corporation. This is not a formal review but rather my personal observations as an experienced user of the AWM Pro system on a variety of tablet PCs.
Why do this? When I read about Samsung’s release of the Q1EX, it looked to me like a great match for this software as well as sized to fit well in a small aircraft cockpit. I bought one as an ”upgrade” to my existing Fujitsu P1610. To test my decision, I (temporarily) loaded AWM Pro on both units and flew with them in my Grumman Tiger to get a good side-by-side comparison. Made sense to me to share the results with you.
