V-Cockpit GPS is designed to be as accurate as possible, but it is limited by the iPhone's sensor accuracy. GPS accuracy also depends on your location, speed and surroundings.
Not for operational use. Do not use while driving or doing tasks that require your attention. Do not use it as primary means of navigation.
What's New in Version 2.1
Fixed a crash on iOS 6.
Solid app that works as advertised - and then some
Happily upgraded from Lite version and for the price (essentially free compared to hardwired sensors) it can't be beat. Got this for primarily for driving, though it works great for commercial flights as well. Excellent HUD for night driving, and for seeing just how, shall we say, 'enthusiastically', my time on the road was spent. I have a high end aftermarket GPS in one of my vehicles that shows many of the same sensor details, but I can't easily get the info out. Hitting 'export' inside this app us far simpler than pulling the hard drive from my AVIC - and this works in any vehicle I choose. Excellent app.
Fun App - could be better
I like putting the phone on my dashboard while driving in the mountains. Works pretty well with the exception of the compass heading which is frequently way off and unreliable. I would think it should be pretty easy to get a much more accurate heading especially when using GPS to derive it. Considering this why does it want to calibrate the phones magnetic compass at times?
I really like this app. Tools for gps with the "Bad elf" even make it better. The only thing I wish you would fix is the HUD display, it's colors are too hard to see. Make the lower horizon brown and the sky blue just like the artificial horizon guage. Also, make the altitude and knots meters white. I will give 5 stars if that changes.
