FAA Advisory Circular

Most pilots, if not all, like electronic gadgets. Ranging from moving map GPS equipped navigations systems or netbooks to mobile phones integrated into the intercom system of the aircraft. All with the intention to get the cockpit free of paper items like maps, approach charts, weather reports and notams.

Having everything electronic means updating these databases regularly, like the paper stuff. But make sure that the cockpit doesn't become a mess with wires, mini gps receivers and other devices needed to run these systems.
