"GPS Integrated..." Can't Post

A DZ not far from me offers "GPS Integrated on Parachute Flight" (clip from their web site attached.)
New one on me. Anyone have a clue?

Maybe looking for fancy looking filler meaning their aircraft have GPS? But it does say parachute flight... Interesting.

Probably a Garmin eTrex or similar clipped to the rig like a radio, then plotted to show your flight path on a map.

They are using Google Maps as far as I can tell, but I don't go around there any more so I am not sure.

Their google ads also have safety guarantees.

Sign me up!!! Laugh Pirate

I wish DZ's would stick to more straight forward marketing. Unsure

Add Skydive Cape Cod to the creative marketing list as well... now aparantly they are a "CT Skydive Center". Unimpressed
