Same problem The app has great features, but you're hogtied to a mobile device in order to use any of them. We need a web interface to create, review, and modify flight plans, and to access flight logs and other data from Garmin Pilot. It's great that I don't have to use a computer to use all of the features of the app, but when my PC is available, it's much easier to use - especially if you have a large, widescreen monitor or two that you can use to view charts, weather, etc, not to mention the mouse and keyboard.
It is getting much better. It needs all the functions, and the ease of use of the handheld units which Garmin is famous for, then will get 5 stars from me. Keep the updates coming please!
Needs to catch up with foreflight and GP iOS. It has been too long and we need a status update
Why pay for this ..? AVARE is FREE Why pay for GarminPilot when AVARE is free. Can't beat that for competition. Plus I don't believe in paying for software that is not FAA-certified.
3 stars for 5.X I have been a Garmin pilot user since the earlier versions. When 5.X rolled out, I had just started using a Lenovo 8 inch tablet. The instability in this version caused me to have to completely uninstall and reinstall the program. Unfortunately that did not solve all the issues and I have been online with customer support. Due to the reinstall, I no longer have the entire database that I used to. One of the major problems now is the app crashing when I try to download anything into the database. This is going to be hugely problematic when the updates cycle. I have been impressed with previous versions, so I hope Garmin will come through in the end. Until then, I do not consider this version stable enough to be flight worthy. - Follow up: I was using the SD card for storage. Downloading the next version now to see if it was corrected.
I'm a big fan of Garmin products and Garmin Pilot on an LG GPad 8.3 works great for cross country navigation and airport info in the cockpit (currently used for VFR flights.) Unfortunately I'm trying other navigation software due to the proprietary ads-b support. Garmin, please open up your ads-b to support other data sources (in addition to the GDL 39.)
