Two, but the number is about to go up. Right now it's a Garmin 496 and an iPhone, but I'll be adding either a GDL 39 or (more likely) Stratux and a tablet... so figure four of them before long.

Default Trutrak has 3

However, don't ask us how many autopilots we have in one plane!

If an iPad is considered a GPS then I have one.

You forgot to include the number zero. That's how many I have. I usually have an iPad along, but I'd go without it on a local flight with a paper chart.
