Good instructor, but...

I was disappointed in the video's resolution, in particular, in-flight views of the 530W map screen. The waypoints are not easily readable, if at all. I would have preferred an animation, or at least, a closer view of the screen. In some segments, I could not identify waypoints mentioned in the audio, because they were either illegible or off screen. When NAV indicators are part of the instruction, a split screen may have worked better than showing unnecessary panel area. Approach plates for each lesson can be viewed in the app but not printed. A workaround is to take a screenshot on the iPad and AirPrint from Photos, or email it to yourself and print it. There are ways to retain good resolution, even with highly compressed video. Had the map screens been sharper, I would have rated a 4 or 5.
