Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck provides pilots who subscribe to Jeppesen electronic charting with immediate, direct and reliable access to enroute chart data, terminal charts, and Jeppesen Airway Manual text. Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck is designed for use on the ground or in the cockpit and provides the industry’s first interactive mobile enroute application that can be used as a true paper-replacement solution for RNAV capable flight decks.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck is compatible with the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation iPads as well as iPad Mini. First generation iPads are not compatible with this version.

• Data-driven and interactive enroute display
• Display of your aircraft position on approach charts, enroute display, and airport diagrams
• Standard airway manual text
• Arrival, departure and approach procedures
• Chart change notifications (terminal and enroute)
• Full-color, high-quality, vector-based data with amazing details and zoom capabilities
• Saved Flights
• Weather: NEXRAD, Icing, Echo Tops, Lightning, Surface Observations, Turbulence and Winds Aloft
• Night Theme
• Terminal chart highlighting and rotation
• Distance Measuring Tool
• Custom keyboard that supports night theme
• Import your active MyFlitePlan Online routes.

Note 1: You must have a valid Jeppesen electronic charting serial number in order to activate the application, or update your charts. New Jeppesen subscription serial numbers are activated within one hour of purchase.
Note 2: For pilots flying by means of conventional navigation the following data elements are not present in Jeppesen’s interactive enroute chart display: Change over points, distance between VORs, signal gaps, and waypoint formations (also known as “intersection formations”). Pilots are responsible for ensuring they have all required navigation information prior to flight.
What's New in Version 2.1.2
Bug fixes, flexible multi-vendor registration, performance improvements, customer requested enhancements.
Better than previous
This is the best FD version yet (ref. iPad 2, 3, non-iOS 7), and the user interface, particularly for terminal charts, is getting to where it needs to be. Terminal chart selection has been much improved and is not as cumbersome as it was before. Switching between plates (two finger swipe) is easy now. Enroute however is still clunky, slow, and frustrating. Other than choosing the route airports for the terminal charts, it's not worth using.
For those that want Jepp charts in Foreflight (the gold standard, against which all others *should* be measured), they are fundamentally incompatible as Jepp charts are rendered (dynamically drawn/created for the view you select) and Foreflight charts are complete images (pdf's?). That's why Foreflight uses gobs of memory and Jepp does not....
Jepp: How about 'Up One' and 'Reverse' buttons next to the Origin, and Destination airport fields in Enroute? 'Up One' would delete the Origin airport and move the Destination airport into the origin field. Yes, I know the iPad is portable, but I would venture that most pilots will fly their next leg from the arrival airport of the previous leg. That would save some deleting and typing steps when loading the next leg...
Captain, it is time to forge a deal to sell your data through ForeFlight. They have developers who have the ability to use that data in a safe and effective manner, presenting it reliably during all phases of flight. YOU DO NOT.
Just think of the enormous sums of money you could save by not paying what appear to be unearned salaries, or, more appropriately, stipends in support of negligent behavior.
Shame on you for putting out such a product, and shame on our regulatory authorities for standing idly by while you endanger the lives of the traveling public with this buggy and unreliable piece of refuse.
Were it not for your monopoly on navigation data for areas other than the US and Canada, I wouldn't even be writing this review, because you'd be only the distant memory of an archaic system of aeronautical charting which had been relegated to the some dark corner of a dank, moldy basement.
Too bad zero stars isn't an option, because even at that my rating would be overly generous...
Airports in flight routing
Need to add private airports in the data base so the route section can be used from these airports. Been requesting this for two years. All airports should show on a scale greater than 6 miles. Arrival and SIDS should show up on the map when selected. This app is still way behind in development. ForeFlight is 100 percent better at $150. Jeppesen should let someone else design there app.
