Default Garmin Aera 796 vs iPad

I have a questions for those who have experience with portable aviation GPS units.

I've been looking at possibly buying a Garmin Aera 796. I have an iPad with the Garmin Pilot App on it.

Seems to me that the iPad Garmin Pilot App does everything that the Garmin Aera 796 does.

Anyone know if there is value in having the Aera 796 vs an iPad with the Garmin Pilot app on it?

In other words, what's the point of buying the Aera 796 when the Ipad with the Garmin app does the same thing?

Perhaps I'm missing something here. Anyone with experience with the 796 who can tell me if there's something it does that the iPad can't do?

Thanks.
