I have a few questions concerning GPS on aircraft. Almost absent 10 years ago it has become a norm. I find long haul flights with GPS far more interesting than without. I remeber flying back before the mid 1990's and it was almost frustrating not knowing where you were during long haul flights. the once you have PTV, I know many people that like me can spend hours looking ah the GPS
1)Could anyone possible tell me since when it was introduced into airliners and which was the first one to introduce it ? (SQ would not surprise me)
2) All GPS on airliners seem to have the same layout. Which company provides the program for the GPS?
3) While in a GVA-LIS TP flight there was a GPS, its not the case on all short haul flights. They could display them as its always interesting to know where we are
