What's New in Version 3.5
New in Version 3.5
* Bug fixes for user-reported problems.
Note: The iPhone version of this app is intended as an emergency backup only, the app is intended to be primarily run on the iPad.
New in Version 3.4
This is a mandatory update for all pilots. It contains important bug fixes necessary for safety.
* Initial support for iOS7
* Many bug fixes for iOS6 and iOS7
New in Version 3.3
* Graphical TFR's (refreshes when internet is available)
* NAVAID (VOR, NDB, etc...) and Intersection support
* Notepad screen allows pilots to jot notes with a finger or stylus
* Plate screen improvements (Notepad plate overlay allows you to type or draw notes on individual plates)
* Velocity Weather from Barons - usable in flight as long as you have a 3G/4G internet data connection (often 5000 to sometimes 8000 feet depending on internet provider).
For the first 30 days you get a free trial of the premium level of Velocity with:
• High Resolution Multilevel National Radar Composite (every 5 minutes), a more accurate weather depiction for flight altitudes than legacy radar products that are mostly surface level radar. This is the same radar available on Barons XM service.
• IR Satellite (every 15 minutes)
• Visible Satellite (every 15 minutes)
• Canadian Radar and Satellite
• National Weather Service Watches & Warnings
• Map Surface Winds contoured map
After 30 days the free level of Velocity still provides US HiRes composite radar at 15 minute intervals, and TFR's.
* Night mode & Brightness control
* Animated RADAR (please give it time to load after you press play)
Note: The very first time you open the chart screen, the app will need to acquire a free trial key from Barons Velocity over the internet.
This may take up to 30 seconds.
Before your first flight, remember to go to the Updates screen, press Modify, and update (download) the chart regions you want to your iPad. This substantially improves app performance because it will no longer require internet for chart & plate data.
Great Value & Simple
Excellent value and EASY to use. Not as many features as some apps but when flying I don't have time to mess with a lot of useless junk. This has nearly everything I need and is simple to use without having to read a manual or go to a seminar.
Perfect for the flying pro! Very inexpensive!
Well laid out. Easy to use in the busy cockpit.
Doesn't include useless bells and whistles.
Own ship position included free on all maps and most approach charts and taxi diagrams.
Wish it would support ads-b, but can't fault them for that.
Hope for continued support for this app.
A year's subscription for the price of a good meal!
iOS 8, not compatible?
I downloaded this after updating to iOS 8 & the app will not stay open. At first I thought it was a problem with the program, but a friend had similar problems with other apps after the update.
